Y’all need to cut out all the hating. Let’s talk solutions! What have you done for (the kids) lately?!? You talk tough on social media, but don’t have the courage to say it to anyone’s face... 😏🤷🏾♀️ And if you have something to say about me, say it TO me - my number is easily accessible.
Sustainable or not, replacing a toothbrush creates waste (swipe right and see). A circular life looks to engage with producers that help maintain the value of materials circulating before they end in a landfill. @thebamandboo offers materials that are biodegrade in case they are not recycled and end up in a landfill or worse (depending on your town's waste management infrastructure you might decide a fully plastic toothbrush is ok to use). But a circular economy means producers should go further, take back and #reuse the packaging, take back and #repurpose the waste materials. Essentially, engage with the customer in eliminating waste and living sustainably, establish a long lasting relationship in achieving a great common goal.
Where possible seek, acquire and buy things without the unnecessary packaging. Buy it individually or buy it in #bulk. Put in your #byobag and just give it a quick rinse when you get home! You might just have such item lying around somewhere or ask a relative or friend, they might be getting rid of what you are looking for!..? 🤲
This same principle applies to buying clothes, consumerism and the availability of fast cheaply produced mass scale clothing production involves the exploitation and near-slavery treatment of fellow humans in developing nations👎. Here, people's human rights are being violated. #equality#justice#globalisation#ecofashion#ecomindset#helfyplanet#helfyactivities#dohelfy#reduce#reuse#repurpose#upcycle#endclassism#endmaterialism .
Folks, you too can help this by not buying if you don't need to, or simply buy second hand ✋. .
❤️ your 🌍🌎🌏 reduce your 👣 and raise your level of #compassion#raiseyourvibration .
Change starts with you.🙏🏽🌻
Scientists estimate that there 5 trillion (that's 5,000,000,000,000) that's a fuck load of pieces of micro plastic that exist in our oceans.
Floating at the surface of the Great Pacific Garbage Patch (GPGP) is 180 times more plastic than marine life. This patch (I can't believe there is even a name for this floating island of trash - how revolting) is 3x times the size of France in area.
Once these plastics enter the gyre, they are unlikely to leave the area until they degrade into smaller microplastics (less than 200mm in size). This deterioration into microplastics is usually the result of sun exposure, waves, marine life and temperature changes. Microplastics have been discovered floating within the water surface layers, but also in the water column or as far down as the ocean floor. Once they become this small, microplastics are very difficult to remove and are often mistaken for food by marine animals.
For example, sea turtles by-caught in fisheries operating within and around the patch can have up to 74% (dry weight) of their diets composed of ocean plastics! 😡 .
As more and more plastics are discarded into the environment, microplastic concentration in the Great Pacific Garbage Patch will only continue to increase. .
If you can’t reuse it, refuse it. AVOID single use. 👉👉👉We can't destroy plastic, there is no away.
There is no where else to put it. It starts with the individual. YOU. The choice to change and to make a difference starts with you. It is our duty people, as inhabitants of this planet, we must be good tenants, show our gratitude and respect to mother earth- our landlord by preserving her. 🙏🏽❤️🌏🐢🐬🐙
