TRY TO Live plastic free for a week!
We need to drastically change our relationship with a product we use for 12 seconds but lasts for 450 years
Plastic has existed for less than 150 years and it has managed to create so much destruction in the environment but also to ourselves. For the last 2 years we have been bombarded on the news about all the problems plastic is creating. And by now we have created 6.3 billion tonnes of plastic of which only 9% was recycled and 12% incinerated, leaving nearly 80% to accumulate on landfills and in our natural environment. This means that 80% of all the plastic still exists either in the ocean or on land.
This week we are bringing awareness on all the ways plastic is polluting our Earth. When we become aware of our plastic usage, we can change the way we use it. In the end, without a demand from customers, there won’t be a supply from companies, we’re all in this together.
That’s why #theconsciouschallenge of this week is about trying to live plastic-free for a week! Not an easy one, but important move in the right direction. Share your plastic-free tips and inspire others!
Win a free children’s book and inspire the next generation!
When writer Johanna Lehmann and illustrator Christina Snuggs became moms they were looking for inspiring and beautifully illustrated children’s books with a personal touch to them. But they couldn’t find what they were looking for. So one night they sat together and started brainstorming and sketching and the next morning their One Little Earth series book idea was born. We get to give 3 of these amazing books away of their first book, The Ocean Adventure!
The Ocean Adventure Book
The ocean carries so much magic and beauty which we want to share with children through our personalized storybooks. With our personalized Ocean Adventure Book we take every child on a journey to experience the richness of the sea and its creatures while playfully teaching them how they can help to keep the ocean wonderful and abundant. This book is the first title of our One Little Earth series, an ecological children’s book series that encourages kids to be mindful towards our planet.
