5 Daily Sustainable Living Habits
Every year, 80 billion plastic shampoo and conditioner bottles are being disposed of; 9 million tons of plastic are being dumped into the sea and 91% of these are not being recycled.These statistics are more than just numbers; they are a wake-up call for every one of us for how little attention we’ve given to our Earth. Now, being zero-waste is, I have to say, quite impossible in our time and generation. Neither am I suggesting that you should berate yourself when you buy the cupcake that you’ve been craving for but is packaged in a non-recyclable plastic container. Instead, I want you to take a moment and think about this: the toothbrush that you switch every three months; the moisturiser bottle that you finished in couple of weeks; the shampoo bottles you invest in depending on how your hair feels. My point is: We’ve done more damage to our environment than we can fathom, in every little way and on a daily basis. If we can be just a little more mindful when making our daily choices though, it shouldn’t take extra effort to BE sustainable. Because building a new, sustainable living lifestyle can start from your same old daily routine.
#ReplaceTheBottleTraditionally, many shampoo and conditioners out there in the market are made with harsh chemicals and packaged in plastic. There’s always this myth that sustainability and corporate commerce can’t coexist together. But it is actually possible to have both. #ReplaceTheBottle is a campaign by Biovène Barcelona, an eco-conscious brand that values both beauty and environmental goals. This online movement promotes a recycling model with green packaging and delivery. To Biovène, it’s important their products don’t leave too much of a carbon footprint after being used. They developed a unique formula that on one hand makes sure the products are naturally and ethically made, and on the other hand gives a variety of options to their customers – Hydrate Repair, Damage Control, Moisture Volume, Clear Protect, and Nourish Restore.
