I can admit it, plastics have most definitely 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. (womp womp)
The world’s largest corporations spent billions of dollars and decades convincing all of us that it’s ok NOT to think about how our daily choices (ahem – throwaway culture) impacts the world around us. And that the responsibility is solely on the consumer to properly dispose of all of this garbage. The worst part?
Production, consumption and pollution of single use disposables are at an all time high and only on track to increase exponentially 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.
I don’t remember asking for that “convenience”… do you?
Instead, plastic: a non-biodegradable, oil-derived substance has permeated our lives at every level and for the most part can not or is not recycled – ever!
Well I say, No More!
Life Unplastic understands that while we are all busy living our lives, we are also sick and tired of having to choose between convenience and harmful packaging.
We truly get it.
So 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 interact with products that promote a low waste lifestyle.
Products like these should not be hiding under multinational corporations – help us lift them up and let them know we support their efforts.
So Gainesville, join us in our journey to plastic independence. Vive la révolution!
