Our daily reliance on plastic has reached extreme levels and it is time to reduce our use, little by little, day by day.
Plastic has a detrimental effect on the planet. Our extensive use of this non-biodegradable material results in, amongst other things, the death of hundreds of thousands of marine mammals every year.
It’s the same or worse when it comes to our health… as many of the common plastic additives (Bisphenols, Phthalates, polyvinyl chloride(PVC), flame retardants, etc.) are endocrine disruptors and they are associated with cardiovascular disease, diabetes, obesity and cancer.
Join our pledge #iliveplasticfree
At Sinplastico we believe it is time to commit to our health and that of our planet.
Therefore, we want to encourage anyone who feels motivated to create a healthier and greener life, to take small steps that turn into sustainable habits.
These are the 4 basic steps to making our pledge:
- I commit to the environment by saying no to plastic bags
- I commit to my health by using ceramic, stainless steel or glass containers
- I commit to future generations by choosing sustainable materials
- I commit to myself by implementing a monthly action plan to live a more plastic-free life
We also want to encourage you to share your achievements and experiences whilst reducing your use of plastic on social media with the hashtag #ILivePlasticFree
