Reduce your waste, your trash will feel light and the planet will thank you ! It's time!
Fighting over Packaging
A real consciousness for everyone concerned about HUMANITY's HEALTH and ENVIRONMENT. We live an environmental crisis. You do not see it in front of your door but it's real, it's happening now.
60 % of animals had been extinct, micro/nano plastics are in human body, cancer increase … Carbon pollution is rising; we are spending more and consuming more with plastic packaging, filling our oceans with plastic.
It's Time to stop our unthinking and irresponsable THROW AWAY SOCIETY
America needs to catch up
Important fact : 91% of plastic is not recycled
–Plastic doesn’t decompose: it breaks down in smaller and smaller pieces. Scientists talk about micro-plastics and now even nano-plastics. A complete article about here.
(1 nanometer = 0.000000001 meter) that fish eat then transmit to humans.
Recycling is NOT the solution.
-Because Recycling Facilities are overwhelmed by so many different kinds of plastic, they can not all recycle properly, it costs a lot of money and also overwhelmed by the volume of the waste.
-China used to be the “world’s garbage dump”, by importing about half of the globe’s plastics and paper products. They put an end to this in January 2018; plastic waste is now piling up in western countries and there’s no sustainable solution to this, only landfills or burning.
What can we do ? We can't fix the plastic waste crisis overnight. But as individuals, we can begin making a positive impact TODAY by beginning our low impact journeys. 🌱ZERO WASTE = SOLUTION = ACTION = HEALTHY PLANET🍀
For who ? For Children, Communities, Politicians, Companies, Justice, Jobs … for People. It’s the responsibility of all of us – governments, businesses, individuals and communities – to act urgently to minimize the damage.
How ? Zero Waste is EDUCATION.
What is exactly Zero Waste?
Zero Waste is a philosophy that encourages the redesign of resource life cycles so that all products are reused.
As Zero Waste is more an ideal or horizon than a target the movement provides us with principles for eliminating waste. Environmental change is needed and as consumer you can start yourself by using your buying power to speed up closing the loops.
Zero Waste means designing and managing products and processes to systematically avoid and eliminate the volume and toxicity of waste and materials, conserve and recover all resources, and not burn or bury them
“Implementing Zero Waste will eliminate all discharges to land,
water or air that are a threat to planetary, human, animal or plant health.”

To go further : EPR ( In the field of waste management, extended producer responsibility (EPR) is a strategy designed to promote the integration of environmental costs associated with goods throughout their life cycles into the market price of the products. Extended producer responsibility legislation is a driving force behind the adoption of remanufacturing initiatives as it “focuses on the end-of-use treatment of consumer products and has the primary aim to increase the amount and degree of product recovery and to minimize the environmental impact of waste materials.)
