As a family, we realised how much plastic we were actually using every day. It became a ‘natural’ part of our lives. Plastic packaging is almost everywhere: in the kitchen, the bedroom and the bathroom, to name but a few.
To date, mankind has produced over 8 billion tons of plastic. Once used, most of the plastic can’t be recycled and will end up in landfills and in our oceans. It harms our environment, kills animals, disrupts ecosystems and negatively influences climate change.
To crown it all, when plastic in the ocean is exposed to the elements, it breaks down to microplastics, containing dangerous chemicals and toxins which, through the marine food web, ends up in our bodies.
Considering this, we started to slowly but surely change our ways and habits and we would like to meet and motivate people who want to do the same. We believe that we don’t need to do everything perfectly from the start, but that it is important just to start. Everything is a process. Just one little thing that changes is still a change and a step towards a better future.
