The consumption of plastics that are used only once is out of control, with more than 8 million tons of plastic entering the oceans and landfills each year. It is estimated that the UK alone uses more than 8.5 billion plastic straws annually. Furthermore, 160,000 plastic bags are used globally every second. This growing problem threatens Earth's ecosystems in a frightening way, and if we do not drastically change our patterns of industrial consumption and production by 2050, the amount of plastic waste in the oceans is likely to exceed that of fish, according to a study released in 2016 by Ellen MacArthur Foundation, in partnership with McKinsey Consulting.
A fundamental change in the consumption of plastic is highly necessary, besides the global cooperation between companies, packaging producers, garbage collection, cities, politicians and other organisations.
The best way to change this scenario is through conscious choices, and small changes in our daily habits has a tremendous capacity for transformation. At Greener Habits Co. our aim is to help people adapt Greener Habits, by offering reusable plastic free, earth, animal and people friendly alternatives for everyday used items. This is a vegan company, run by a vegan, who is on a mission to change the world one Greener Habit at a time.
