Minimizing our usage of non-reusable plastic products is something I think we all like the idea of and want to strive for, but in reality is something we aren’t the best at actually committing to. Did you know, “9.1 Billion tons of plastic has been produced since plastic was introduced in the 1950’s…. virtually every piece of plastic that was ever made still exists in some shape of form”. You may be thinking “It can’t be that bad, what about recycling?!” Surprisingly enough, the majority of the plastic we use doesn’t get recycled, the majority being 91%. That’s a lot of plastic ending up in our ecosystems that will affect the plant and animal life for years even if we were to drastically reduced our plastic intake immediately. As devastating as that all sounds it’s important that we all make an effort to change the fate of our plastic problem for the sake of our planet and ourselves. At SALT Provisions we carry a variety of everyday items to help replace one use plastic items. Check out the photos bellow to get inspired about switching to reusable.
