Just a reminder on ✧Why it is so important to use “reusable items”✧♻️ .
Plastic consumption is one of the most important environmental problems we face right now! It’s impacting our environment & our well being... plastic is a massive problem because it’s UN-BIODEGRADABLE🚫🥤8.3 Billion mentric tones of NON RECYCLED plastic is being produced each year and only 9️⃣% of that is being RECYCLED🚯😳 just to name a few reasons why this is so important for
1️⃣Environment: drilling to get the oil to produce plastic releases toxic/harmful gases which is directly linked to Global Warming.
2️⃣Oceans: for decades plastic waste has been dumped into the oceans ❌ causing sea life to become trapped, injured or killed by consumption 😫 if you don’t care about that then think about this, the toxins they ingest & absorbs goes straight into the blood stream, plastic filling their poor little tummies until human consumption, and then we absorb ALL of those harmful toxins into our blood stream! Which bring me to...
3️⃣Our Health: not only is plastic causing damage to our planet but it’s also causing damage to our health! Eating out of a plastic container causes serious effects and is magnified when heated in a microwave, these side effects include: impaired brain & neurological dis function, adult on-set diabetes, chromosomal & reproductive abnormalities, cancer, resistance to chemotherapy - just to name a few! Mostly damaging to infants & fetuses!
So ask yourself:
What can you do differently to reduce YOUR plastic consumption?
How can you reuse plastic?
Are you recycling? ♻️ I hope this has impacted your way of thinking in some way - next time you’re at the movie theatre think ahead & bring your reusable water bottle, simple things like that make all the difference & add up! Yes- one person CAN make a difference! Spread the word & spread the love for our planet and all that lives in it! 💚♻️🌎
