Day 9 – Plastic overload in stores

Have you ever thought of how many tons of plastic we encounter daily in food and cosmetics stores? I haven’t until I started living more plastic-aware.

And it is true, we are surrounded by it and can barely by a deodorant or shower gel without buying it in a container made of plastic.

Indeed plastics have made our live much easier, it is cheap, long lasting, sterile, light and easily formable. Producing a glass bottle is theoretically not really much more environmentally friendly, if we consider its CO2 footprint.

Yet, to keep up the attention on where we encounter plastics in our daily lives and how we can avoid consuming the quickly-buy-fast-chuck items, we can together make a difference.
