Be A Part of the Plastic Pollution Solution: Step 1 - Just Start
“100,000 marine mammals and turtles and 1 million sea birds are killed by marine plastic pollution annually.”*
The statistics are shocking and sad. But if you are willing to make a change and don’t know where to start, we are here to help. And we know starting is the toughest part. But by making one change at a time, we build a habit that helps our planet. Plastic Free July is a great opportunity to start living more sustainably, reduce the global plastic footprint and be part of the plastic pollution solution.
Last year, we partnered with The Wave Project to support and encourage the life-changing push to positive physical and mental health. This year we have prepared some fantastic surprises for you throughout Plastic-Free July, to encourage and support you along your sustainable living journey, including giveaways and discounts on some of our brands each week!
We are kick-starting the month with highlighting Bambaw’s sustainable substitutes to single-use products. The range includes everything from Organic Cotton & Bamboo Cotton Buds to Stainless Steel Water Bottles.
Dental floss cases take 500 years to biodegrade as they are usually made of plastic. The dental floss itself is another story. Being a small piece of plastic, commonly nylon, it usually ends up in the ocean. Which leads us to the above-stated fact! Bambaw's Refillable Corn Starch Dental Floss is 100% vegan friendly and made of 100% bioplastic PLA, derived from corn starch. The plastic-free stainless steel container is environmentally-friendly, plus it can be refilled. A perfect way to kickstart your Plastic-Free July!
Razors are another item we don’t necessarily consider when thinking about plastic waste. However, changing disposable plastic razors every 2 or 3 weeks is piling up, contributing negatively to the environment. Stainless Steel Razors are a sustainable alternative to disposable plastic ones. You simply switch out the metal blade when it becomes dull. The unisex design is made of strong and durable stainless steel. And most importantly, is easy to maintain, fitting the standard double edge razor blades readily available in supermarkets and chemists.
Bambaw Coconut Bowls are handcrafted from real coconuts, saved from burning during the coconut oil production process - a fantastic circular economy, zero waste product (and did we mention stunningly stylish?!). You can select from an unpolished or polished exterior of the bowl. Although they are a naturally biodegradable product, finishing them with coconut oil makes them dishwasher safe! The bowls are perfect for your breakfast or snack, and give you an instant feeling of being at one with nature.
Plastic is all around us and undoubtedly consumerism has made it is easier to choose products containing it, rather than the opposite. However, a single action is all that’s needed to be part of the plastic pollution solution. So just start. Join us in Creating a better Tomorrow, Today.
