The Meaning of Bin less
Why I chose Bin less?
My personal goal at home is to throw away only 1 small bag of trash each week and I've achieved it so many times.
Every Monday I see many trash bins filled up so much that the lid can't even close, some of them with materials that can be recycled.
And I think if we are producing this much waste only in my small town, I don't want to know the rest of the world.
How do I do it?
The key is to REFUSE. Instead of going to department stores and buying new clothes and objects all the time, I started getting secondhand items and only looked for what I really needed.
Having a minimalist lifestyle it's great!, plus your house looks cleaner and more spacious.
I also refuse Styrofoam whenever I order takeout , instead, I carry my own reusable container to have my food packed in, believe me, you are going to prevent a large amount of single use plastics from ending up in the landfill.
The truth about Parabens and Sulfates...
These two ingredients are linked to ecological harm , like toxicity to marine life and organisms, coral bleaching (loss of coral reefs ) which provide more oxygen than trees. Not only that, but these chemicals can also harm our health by disrupting our hormone function and increase the risk of different types of cancer.
This is why switching to our Paraben and Sulfate-Free products is a huge benefit.
GOOD FOR THE ENVIRONMENT - GOOD FOR YOU!
Why is plastic so bad?
The problem is not plastic itself, but the non-recyclable packaging of items like toys, electronics, cosmetics, etc.
Only 8.7% of the plastic consumed in the United States get recycled, the rest ends up burnt in landfills or in our oceans.
Now the real problem...
Plastic will break down into tiny particles after many years called micro-plastics. In the process of breaking down, it releases toxic chemicals (additives that were used to shape and harden the plastic) that make their way into our food chain and into our food and water supply. These toxic chemicals that come from micro-plastics are now in our bloodstream. And latest researches have linked them to cancer, infertility, birth defects, and many other health concerns.
