We have a #BIG #PLASTIC #PROBLEM!
This is about 1 month collection of a single persons #plastic #packaging products😵 Instead of sending to the #landfill, been saving for future repurposing.
In #Chile learnt about the bottle eco bricks, filling up some plastics bottles with plastic or other unrecycleables and use for construction of non structural elements (advisable outdoors: plastics gas emissions VOCs when temperature rises), but not sure yet what will do with the collected plastics, so will see what other idea I come up with to transform them.
What I'm certain of is that our earth and oceans don't need plastic #garbage in it. Our beautiful #planet , animals, rainforests and all living beings deserve #respect and to dwell in harmony and not affected so badly by #pollution and #humanimpact
If we can start doing any little or big #change to reduce or avoid this, we are making a #difference. Imagine if everybody contributed with its own little grain of sand, the snow ball would keep growing and we could achieve great things!
Plastic takes from 30-1000 years to degrade! And products are still being made with unrecycleable materials and we continue consuming them without really thinking about its #lifecycle
This year #China, the world recycler, stopped accepting recycling from other nations, meaning most of it is not even being processed and going to landfills, incinerators or polluting the environment.
In this fast paced, compulsive consuming addicted, disposable times, we can learn to choose consciously what we are consuming (or even try baby steps) #responsiblysourced materials, #biobased or #unpackaged = bring your own.
If consumers start choosing other options, the market will have to change the focus and start providing new options because they will still want to continue profiting.
We need to accept our #responsibility , address this issues and #rethink about our actions in the world we are creating and #consume and #disposethoughtfully
After seeing this I'll def be thinking twice if I need the item and reduce my plastics consumption by trading, buying more local and using own containers.
