🍃This year’s Earth Day is facing a bigger challenge: COVID-19 pandemic. With the use of disposable products and the need to disinfect, it accelerates pollution and releases toxic material into the environment.
The plastics industry is adding to the situation, and pushing even more during the pandemic to relax Plastic bag restrictions across the country.
🍃Studies warn that the virus may survive the longest on plastic and steel: according to NIH (National Institutes of Health, where Dr. Fauci’s is a physician): “COVID-19 was detectable in aerosols for up to 3 hours, up to 4 hours on copper, up to 24 hours on cardboard, and up to 2 to 3 days on plastic and stainless steel.
What can we do?
In this scenario, we can look for 🍃eco-friendly, recyclable gloves, 🍃organic hand sanitizers, 🍃biodegradable wipes, 🍃EPA non-toxic approved disinfectants🍃chlorine-free bleach, 🍃reusable masks, buy 🍃organic food that helps us to stay healthier, organic grocery and meal home-delivery, and reusable face masks! And shop less for unnecessary items. Don’t forget to sign the petition on closing wet markets!
Bonnie Bio products are all made from natural corn and vegetable ingredients with no chemical additives to ensure non-toxicity and allow for complete composting and biodegradability, yet they are as sturdy as traditional plastic. They are incredibly environmentally friendly as they break down back to CO2, water and biomass, which are renewable resources and they don’t leach any toxins into the environment whilst breaking down. We even use soy-based ink to print, which is eco-friendly.
🌎 More than ever, we should be eco-conscious in our actions. There will be a noticeable increase in plastic pollution due to the pandemic.
We have plastic regulations getting rolled back, while at the same time a major increase in the use of disposable plastic protective gear, such as gloves, which often can be seen discarded on the street.
🌱That’s why I gathered all products that are 100% biodegradable, compostable, non-toxic, and 100% plastic-free! We have the choice to not contribute to this plastic invasion worldwide and instead feel like eco-superheroes!
Protect yourself and the world at the same time!
