Did you know that every year 1 billion toothbrushes are thrown into landfills in the U.S alone? That is enough to stretch across the earth 4 times! You can help eliminate waste by buying alternative to plastic toothbrushes, such as bamboo toothbrushes.
It is estimated that we use around 500 million straws everyday in the America. Yes, you heard that right, everyday! Most straws cannot be recycled and therefore find their way into landfills, parks, and our oceans. Straws are one of the top 10 items found in beach cleanups and they are extremely toxic to our oceans. It is estimated that by 2050 there will be more plastic in the ocean than fish and the damage caused to marine life may be irreversible. However, you can change that. By buying reusable straws, paper straws, or skipping straws in general, you are helping end this problem.
Green Technology: Notebooks
Using regular notebooks leads to consuming large amounts of paper. Most of us don’t keep our notebooks for a lifetime and so, notebooks get thrown out very often. Pulp and paper is the third largest polluter of water, land and air, and our consumption of it is only predicted to rise by 2020. This means that deforestation will only continue to rise as 93% of all paper is made out of trees. Considering that one tree makes enough oxygen for three people to breathe, it is important we begin to move away form using paper. Luckily new eco-friendly technology has come to the rescue. Products like the Rocket notebook can help you reduce your consumption of paper.
