It isn’t just females moving in on the anti-plastic movement. Men across the globe are equally concerned about the harmful effects plastic has on the environment. After all, we all share the same world and if we continue to destroy everything within it, our future generations don’t stand a chance. And while everyone else is eliminating plastic straws from their daily habits (a great place to start!), you may be wondering why plastic straws are being banned and why this is an eco movement you should join. Style Has No Boundaries has the scoop!
Spoiler alert: Us humans are solely responsible for destroying the planet.
Anyone who has ever strapped on a pair of goggles to go snorkeling, visited a tropical beach location or taken a boat ride to watch for dolphins and whales knows just how sacred the ocean is. It’s one of the most beautiful things on this planet, and one that is quickly being taken over and destroyed by plastic, including everything in it.
Instead of seeing some beautiful sights while snorkeling, people are spotting animals entangled in plastic and instead of deep-sea fishing for some good eating, people are reeling in big chunks of plastic. It's tasteless, to say the least.
Not only that but whales have been washing up on shores across the globe, and when they undergo autopsies, marine biologists are finding their stomachs to be full of plastic which ultimately leads to the end of their life.
Our ocean and wildlife is being taken over by plastic, all for our desire for convenient, disposable utensils, shopping bags and cheap plastic accessories. It's a shame.
While we wish we could tell you the damage of plastic ends in the ocean, it doesn’t. Landfills are full of plastic products, which as you likely already know, never decompose. However, what may surprise you is that several plastics contain harmful chemicals which leak into the ground and water streams. And you guessed it – the damage doesn’t end there. Not only do animals rely on the environment to survive, humans are also being subjected to these chemicals, as we too, drink, swim and play in the water. So, just as you’re about to take a nice dip in a local lake or ocean on a hot summer day, think about what you’re bathing in – it, unfortunately, isn’t just water.
Great question! The first step to saving the environment is to eliminate your plastic usage. A lot of companies have followed en suite with the No Mas Plastik movement, removing plastic straws and bags from their establishments, and these are certainly the places you want to spend your money at.
However, there are many other ways you can help eliminate plastic. Here are some of our favourites:
