CoolCanucks Blog Contest ~ Ecover Natural Cleaning Products Review & Giveaway!!

 

 

As many of you know already, I am a huge fan of try­ing to coax every­body that I know to live a greener life. Going green is not as hard as one thinks, it can be done very eas­ily. Less waste, less cost, and less of leav­ing a foot­print on mother earth. I find all of this very impor­tant, as should you.

Recy­cling is an action you must take right now and a vital one con­sid­er­ing we are cur­rently using our planet’s resources faster than they can be renewed. Today, tonight and tomor­row recy­cling is an ongo­ing aware­ness to improve our abil­ity to sus­tain life on Earth. Your role in recy­cling can be as small or large as you want it to be. Most things can be recy­cled today, even with our present pro­cess­ing systems.

 

 

 

 

For some, it can be hard to imag­ine a world with­out plas­tic – espe­cially plas­tic bags.

 

The cons of using plas­tic bags are so over­whelm­ing I don’t think I can think of any pros. They are a huge pol­lu­tion prob­lem, their light­weight design allows them to blow away eas­ily. The fact that they are free gives them no value so peo­ple don’t think about how they dis­pose of them. They are made from petro­leum, which could be used for fuel or energy. They don’t biode­grade, instead they break­down and are mis­taken for food and are often eaten by both land and marine ani­mals which is fatal. They are found every­where and many ani­mals become fatally entangled.

They are not biodegrad­able, so they will per­sist pretty much for­ever, wher­ever they end up. Land­fills if we are lucky, but because of their wide­spread use and their abil­ity to fly away in the wind, they can be a big part of the trash along roads and fields. If they get into the water, they look like food and end up clog­ging the stom­achs of a vari­ety of ani­mals, most famously sea tur­tles look­ing for jellyfish.

The recy­cling of plas­tic bags, while prefer­able to other dis­posal meth­ods, is not cost-effective. Plas­tic bags have only existed for 25 years yet the bil­lions that have been pro­duced since then have caused immea­sur­able dam­age to the envi­ron­ment and to wildlife.

With that in mind, I was ecsta­tic to find ECOVER while surf­ing the web who have already taken these steps toward a more happy and greener world!
