🌿Sustainable. ♻️Reusable. 🌱Biodegradable. 🌟No single-use plastic.
What does it mean to be sustainable?
Living sustainably means leaving little impact on the environment and preserving enough resources for future generations. It is a lifestyle that attempts to be kind to Earth’s natural resources and replenishing what we already have as a method to reduce polluting waste. Other principles include not being harmful to the environment or depleting natural resources.
Why should we use reusable items?
If you get good quality products that last very long, you can reuse them over and over again before they reach the end of their life. This reduces wastes compared to throwing out plastic disposables which could be harmful to the environment.
Follow the 5R principles:
How do biodegradable products help the environment?
Using natural and biodegradable products is a great way to reduce the impact on the environment. Biodegradable products can break down more easily as they are composed of natural ingredients. This means less pollution and faster decomposition. Plastic takes up to 1000 years or more to decompose and can still harm the environment/ecosystem.
Why is it important to cut down on single-use plastic?
Plastic waste has become a serious global issue. Not all plastic can be recycled and plastic takes a long time to break down. While some might think it’s more convenient to throw away plastic after each use, think about the environment and the animals it could harm. Our ocean is filled with an increasing amount of plastic waste and marine animals are suffering. We have to remember this is not natural for them. This is our time to step up and help. Small steps are better than none.
