One of the largest culprits of environmental harm we face today is single use plastic. These plastics come in all different forms and have a variety of uses for humans globally. For some types of single use plastics, including plastic bags  they can take from twenty to one thousand years to fully degrade. This means that during the many years that these plastics spend in our oceans and natural environment, they are contaminating our water and soil with the toxic chemicals used to manufacture them. These chemicals then poison the tissue of animals who live in earth’s natural environment. This poison enters and pollutes the human food chain, as we will then eat the animals that have been affected by these toxic chemicals. In essence, as our oceans and natural land environments are polluted with plastics, we end up eating our own plastic waste.

Sustainable products are those products that provide environmental, social and economic benefits while protecting public health and environment over their whole life cycle.

We as a community need to start supporting sustainable business and sustainable products in order to consume healthy while saving he environment.
