Plastic, Plastic, Plastic…
Where does it go? Did you know it can take plastic up to 1000 years to break down!
We use plastic at an astonishing rate. Since the 1950 around 8.3 Billion tons of plastic has been produced worldwide- and only 9% of it has been recycled.
Plastic is killing our oceans; killing our rivers; killing our animals and wild life… we are eating plastic in the form of microplastic so in reality it is killing humans too.
These stats are out there but we don’t seem to be doing much about reducing our plastic use.
I am ashamed to say I have only recently let myself think about this, I only recently started to look into the figures and what it is doing to our precious earth, and I was horrified.
DreamCatchingDuo have decided to do a NO PLASTIC FEBRUARY.
Our aim is to boycott plastic completely. Now we are aware this is no easy feat plastic is everywhere- in our tooth brushes, covering most of our food we consume, it’s in our clothes, our shampoo bottles its literally everywhere. So we are going to do our very best to boycott it completely or at the very least only buy products made using 100% recycled plastic.
We are going to blog our finding mostly for a bit of fun but if we could help even one other person to reduce their plastic use too that would be amazing.
We will record it all,
- Did we spend a fortune sourcing alternative products?
- Did we find it surprisingly easy?
- Did we end up making our own products where we could?
- Hints, Tips & shopping options.
It’s going to be like a big Eco-Treasure hunt.
If anyone has any questions or would like to join us on our big Eco-Treasure hunt give us a shout.
If you don’t want to join us but are interested in what we are doing, we would love if you would follow our journey over on DreamCatchingDuo on Instagram and maybe we could all start to think about our plastic use a little bit more mindfully.
One voice may be small but together we can ROAR!
Let the fun commence,
Love & positive vibes always,
