PLASTIC BUILD UP
Only 10 % of all plastic used is recycled. Disposable plastic is unnecessary and harms our environment. Hundreds if tons of plastic are discarded each year. How can we make a difference? Many companies in the natural health industry are working to be more sustainable, such as removing outer shrink-wrapping on bottles and promising a percentage of sales to environmental organizations. When one company collected the shrink-wrap in their facility for a month, jokingly building it into a giant snowman, they quickly stopped laughing as they realized that over 300 lbs of shrink-wrap was being sent to landfills every month. Today, they recover the shrink-wrap from their manufacturing facility. As consumers, we too can make more sustainable choices and make a difference.
