Educate oneself to practice what you preach. So many conversations are had regarding environmental issues, and yet we all slip back in to dangerous habits. This images features many different materials, but I am going to focus on plastic as it is almost impossible to recycle and is mainly downcycled, but that's only when it is properly disposed of🗑️🗑️
Although pollution is one of the lowest ranked environmental issues which is affecting climate change (excessive carbon emissions being number 1), plastic items still take longer to decompose than many of us will be alive on this planet 🤯🤯
We lived for thousands of years without plastic - why can't we do the same now?? All it takes is a bit of rewiring bad habits and replacing them with new ones. With so many amazing plant based alternatives to plastic, it seems a no brainer to revert to an environmentally friendly option. Unfortunately, until big business and governments get involved in bans and alternatives, the responsibility lies within the consumer. -
Be MINDFUL of your purchases. Be MINDFUL of your choices. Our currency are our bargaining chips for change. Let's do this together ✊✊ we've got this.
