Hello Babies,

You know the awareness of zero waste has increased rapidly over the past years.

We know that humans are affecting this world negatively with their actions.

Oceans looks like they're going to overspill with trash if the human behavior does not change.

By 2015, the world had produced 7.8 billion tonnes of plastic — more than one tonne of plastic for every person alive today.

It all comes back to our buying choices because the mass production only exists if there are purchasers. Let's just say stop to the unnecessary plastic!

PLASTIC WATER BOTTLES

So much plastic waste makes it into our oceans that it is estimated that over a million marine animals are killed by plastic waste each year, often due to accidental plastic ingestion.

Plastic bottles are not only bad for the world, it's bad for your health too. They contain BPA (Bisphenol A) which is a chemical that is tested to be harmful to your brain activity, to a development of a fetus, it is also linked with high blood pressure and many more.

Bottles also may contain microplastics that are small pieces of plastic that you might consume without realizing.

73% of beach litter worldwide is plastic.

Ordering takeover or eating out in a restaurant can come with bunch of one time use products that just go into the trash in an instant.

By carrying a small set of cutlery with you can solve this problem.
Basically tell the waiter beforehand.

And if you're ordering from home, just make sure that you state that you love nature! Many apps have that choice, if yours don't then you could write a note!

OVERLY PACKAGED PRODUCTS

40 percent of plastic produced is packaging,used just once and then discarded.

Let's try to buy bulk instead and carry our own reusable bags with us.

We have an island in the middle of the North Pacific Gyre, the Great Pacific Garbage Patch – which is mostly composed of plastic. It’s the size of India, Europe and Mexico combined.

Using a cloth is honesly just fine.

CLOTHES THAT CONTAIN PVC

PVC (polyvinyl chloride) is one of the deadliest plastics known to humans, often referred to as poison plastic as it contains several seriously harmful toxic chemicals including dioxins, phthalates, vinyl chloride, ethylene dichloride, lead, cadmium, and organotins.

It causes many serious health risks such as cancer that is proved by World Health Organization's International Agency for Research on Cancer.

Ugh there's many more to the PVC,

It is one of the most common synthetic materials in the world however, it is one of the hardest materials to recycle. Less than 3 percent of PVC is recycled.

It usually ends up being burned which pollutes our air because it releases harmful gasses in the form of dioxin. Dioxin is a very persistent gas that spreads through the air and get in to our water easily. Also it is even found in the tissues of living animals nearby. Soo

It's not actually cruelty free.

Unfortunately PVC is not only used in clothes.

It’s in our homes, hospitals, cars, and in toys and food and beverage packaging. PVC is also used in children’s plastic toys and even teething products.

Luckily for us avoiding this material is very easy, we can just use many alternatives there are out there.

TOOTHPASTE THAT COMES IN A BOX

90% of the trash floating in our oceans is made of plastic, around 46,000 pieces per square mile.

When you think about it there's absolutely no need for a box. It's only produced for purchaser's appeal. So If we decide to not buy it, they will eventually stop producing.

That was my small list for things you should never buy.

There are many more things we can avoid for our own good and for our world.

Let's just start somewhwere!

Love you all.
