Say NO to single use plastic.
Universally, we create a scary 300 million tons of plastic every year. Only shocking 9% of this is recycled or reused. This means that 91% of all plastic is only used once, and then ends up getting thrown away- and finding its way into our oceans or landfills. Scientists predict that by 2050, there will be more plastic in our ocean than fish.
A simple way you can make a difference is by switching to sustainable products. Say no to single-use plastic. So it is up to us as responsible consumers to find sustainable alternatives to plastic.
One such natural material is Bamboo! It’s an incredible alternative to plastic because it is strong, durable and at the same time biodegradable. It has some great natural properties too like being antibacterial, super strong and capable of filtering air and water. This flexibility makes bamboo perfect for a huge range of purposes.
After use many bamboo products can simply be composted and will biodegrade naturally in just a couple of years. On the other hand our plastic waste can take hundreds or thousands of years to decompose.
