International Plastic Bag Free Day on July 3rd
We use 5 trillion = 5,000,000,000,000 plastic bags… per year! That’s 160,000 a second! And over 700 a year for every single person on the planet.
Most bags are simply thrown out!! Less than 1 percent are recycled. The biggest problem with plastic bags is that they do not readily break down in the environment, with estimates for the time it takes them to decompose ranging from 20 to 1000 years.
What happens to the plastic bags?
In total, we use 100 million tons of plastic every year. Some 10 percent of this plastic end up in the oceans. An estimated 300 million plastic bags every year end up in the Atlantic Ocean alone.
12 minutes of use, 1000 years of pollution!!!
As per the Survey, by 2050, the world's oceans could contain more plastic than fish measured by weight.
Plastic Pollution is dangerous - We need efficient solutions!
No one can be a Zero-Waste hero, they wish they could be overnight!
Here are some of the ways you can turn into an Anti-Plastic lifestyle in just 5 ways and help plastic pollution become a thing of the past.
USE STAINLESS STEEL STRAWS/BIOGREEN COMPOSTABLE STRAWS
Although they seem small, they have a huge environmental impact on the sea creatures of the ocean and their quality of life.
Paper straws are also a wonderful alternative, as they are eco-friendly, biodegradable, safer for animals and wildlife, and take less time to decompose.
Also, our Biogreen Straws are made from 100% natural, compostable and affordable materials completely environmentally friendly...
USE PAPER PACKAGING
Buying packaged paper products not only reduces our plastic use but also helps minimize our plastic habit.
Such packaging products may also be reused and recycled, or composted. Take BOXED WATER, for instance.
INVEST IN STAINLESS STEEL BOTTLES OR COMPOSTABLE CUPS
The stainless-steel bottles/cups can be bought just about everywhere you go. They come in various colours, and can be rendered without BPA.
USE MORE LIKE REUSABLE TOTE/COMPOSTABLE CARRY BAGS
Tote bags are a top tier no-plastic object, just like stainless steel bottles. A reusable tote bag will hold all of your things without the risk of tearing or damaging the environment.
We recommend to use our “BioGreen Compostable Carry Bags” - a best replacement for Plastic Bags!
SWITCH TO PAPER WRAPPING
The straws are wrapped in plastic. The candies are packed in plastic. Even the beauty items are wrapped in plastic.
Why not bundle it up in sustainable packaging such as paper or biodegradable materials?
Our target is life without plastic! You can live a plastic-free life on one product at a time, from straws to bags to packaging.
A small change starts only from you & from us !
