Try it yourselF!
The OK BOOCHA team
put together a
zero waste GUIDE
to help you act upon the conscious we all have in us urging to be more respectful and care for our planet.
did you know?
Packaging accounts for over 40% of total plastic usage
Approximately 500 billion plastic bags are used worldwide each year,
with more than one million bags used every minute.
Your average plastic bag has a typical “working life” of just 15 minutes.
Only 1% of plastic bags are recycled worldwide.
Over the last ten years we have produced more plastic
than during the whole of the last century.
Each year marine waste kills at least
100,000 marine animals and 1 million seabirds
When you are out and about getting your groceries
or lunch say no to:
SAMPLES IN LITTLE PLASTIC CUPS
FOOD ITEMS WRAPPED IN PLASTIC IN PLASTIC IN PLASTIC
CHEAP PLASTIC JUNK THAT WILL 90% CHANCE END UP IN THE BIN
Think ahead and bring your own:
COFFEE KEEP CUP
STAINLESS STEEL STRAW
You don't have to buy every zero waste alternative product at once but slowly introduce them into your daily life once your plastic & wasteful products run out. Some examples:
swap the basics
It obviously depends on where you are located and what is available in your area but most health food shops and more and more super markets offer bulk supply of among other:
DRY GOODS (grains, seeds, nuts, flour)
DRINKS ( our OKBOOCHA!)
BODY WASH & SHAMPOO
Keep your ears and eyes open for new venues and products!
Spread the word & make other people aware
of what our wasteful lifestyle does to our precious planet!
The more awareness and care, the more initiative and alternatives will become available.
Each one of us can make a change!
SPREAD THE LOVE!
