Universally, we create a scary 300 million tons of plastic every year. And a shocking 9% of this is recycled or reused. This means that 91% of all plastic ends up getting thrown away- and finding its way into our oceans or landfills. This is a huge amount which is why 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 and by saying no to plastic.
So what else can you use instead?
Bamboo! It’s an incredible alternative to plastic because it’s so strong and durable - but is biodegradable and natural instead.
It’s the jewel for so many sustainable companies. Bamboo is a super plant. If the next Marvel movie stars ‘Bamboo Man’, I wouldn’t be surprised. Bamboo is often labeled ‘the world’s most renewable material’ and is the fastest-growing woody plant in the world. It can grow up to four feet in one day (that's no exaggeration).
To thrive like this, bamboo requires no pesticides and little water. When bamboo is harvested, the plant regenerates itself in no time at all (you see, a superhero in the making!) and I could go on to talk about its erosion reducing and soil nourishing qualities, but you get the idea.
After reading the lush qualities above, you can understand how bamboo falls into the sustainable category.
Resolute Bamboo Care have come up with the ultimate 100% biodegradable travel kit made from sustainable bamboo and cotton. The kit includes a biodegradable bamboo toothbrush, a bag of 10 cotton cleansing cloths, a box of 100 cotton swabs also biodegradable and dental floss with a mini dispenser.
I'm fascinated by the bamboo toothbrush and to be fair, I've used it a few weeks now so I can give it a thumb’s up.
Bamboo and cotton products are a simple solution to the plastic waste crisis. I believe that these biodegradable products can directly reduce the amount of plastic ending up in a landfill, river, and ocean that kills our planet.
Make the change today and switch to sustainable earth-loving bamboo and cotton products. We can all make a difference and create a positive future for our planet.
