According to the Natural History Museum, over 12 million tons of plastic are dumped into the ocean every year! What's even more mind-blowing is that plastic items take over 1000 years to completely decompose. This has to stop!
We believe natural beauty is always the best beauty, in both skincare and the environment, and oceans filled with plastic is NOT beautiful.
Not only are our beaches natural beauty being tainted with garbage and harmful waste, but the animals are suffering from our daily mistakes.
The Ocean Cleanup Foundation found a Sea Turtle in the Pacific Ocean with this debris in its stomach. Research indicates that half of the sea turtles worldwide have ingested plastic. Many starve and die after doing so, by mistakenly stop eating due to their stomachs feeling full- of plastic. Plastic waste kills up to a million seabirds a year. As with sea turtles, when seabirds ingest plastic, it takes up room in their stomachs, sometimes causing starvation. Many seabirds are found dead with their stomachs full of this waste. Scientists estimate that 60 percent of all seabird species have eaten pieces of plastic, a figure they predict will rise to 99 percent by 2050.
How can you help? Easy! Support brands that care about the environment and who are conscious about reducing waste through their products and packaging.
