Reduce, Reuse, Recycle...
I'm sure you've heard that before, but does this apply to you?
I created these products because I know how important it is to keep the planet alive. Whether it's reusing a travel cup for your morning coffee instead of their paper cups, using towels instead of paper towels, using cloth diapers instead of diaposables, whether you trade your paper, and plastic bags at the grocery store for reusable cloth bags, or pack your lunch in reusable sandwich bags. These products will make your journey into an eco-friendly lifestyle much easier.
~Keep it Green~
-40% of U.S. landfill trash is paper products.
-The paper industry is the third largest contributor to global warming.
-The average American discards of 700 pounds or more of paper each year.
-If every household in the U.S. used just one less 70-sheet roll of virgin fiber paper towels, that would save 544,000 trees each year. Change that to using three less rolls per U.S. household per year, and that would save 120,000 tons of waste and $4.1 million in landfill dumping fees.
-Your typical paper towel is manufactured using chlorine, which releases carcinogenic dioxins and furans [1800recycling.com]
|-When the small particles from photodegraded plastic bags get into the water, they are ingested by filter feeding marine animals. Biotoxins like PCBs that are in the particles are then passed up the food chain, including up to humans [cleanair.org]|
-Every year some 45,000 tons of plastic waste are dumped into the world's oceans. One of the results of this is that up to one million seabirds and one hundred thousand marine mammals are killed each year by plastic trash such as fishing gear, six-pack yokes, sandwich bags, and styrofoam cups.
