There are many layers to the environmental problems of the Earth, but when you experienced your “aha!” moment and decided you wanted to be part of the solution – what is the one disposable, everlasting material that you just can’t seem to avoid no matter how hard you try?
I think we can all agree it’s Plastic.
I can admit it, plastics have modernized our lives in profound ways. BUT – in the wake of the ‘plastic explosion’ of days gone by, a fast-paced, convenience-driven, waste- producing society was born.
The world’s largest corporations saw #moneysigns and proceeded to spend billions of dollars and decades convincing all of us that it’s ok NOT to think about how our daily choices and throwaway culture impacts the world around us. And that the onus is on us (ha) to responsibly dispose of all of this garbage. The worst part? It worked!
Production, consumption and pollution of single use disposables are at an all time high and only on track to continue increasing over the next 20 years. Plastics are already plaguing our oceans, our food chain, and ourselves. Plastics are everywhere.
From snacks to shampoo, everything we consume seems to be packaged in plastic. And personally, I don’t remember anyone ever really asking manufacturers for that “convenience”, do you?
Instead we are expected to recycle unrecyclable packaging and not think twice about where something goes when we throw it “away”.
Well I say, No More!
Life Unplastic understands that people are busy and likely have limited time or desire to diy everything, but are still sick and tired of having to choose between convenience and harmful packaging. We truly get it. Our job is to curate the best eco-friendly and single-use/plastic-free alternatives that are out there locally and regionally and bring them together in a brick & mortar storefront that will allow people to shop for themselves, as well as gifts for friends and family who may be interested in (or you may be interested in converting to) a low waste lifestyle.
Join us in our journey to plastic independence. Vive la révolution!
