Plastic pollution is a global holocaust and sadly it is a man-made one. Did you know that approximately 500 billion plastic bags are used on a global scale?
The marine ecosystem in particular is suffering immensely as a result of plastic pollution. 31 species of marine mammals are known to have ingested marine plastic whilst over 100 species of sea birds have ingested plastic artefacts. We are not immune from the impact either. Plastic particles in the ocean attract toxins, which in turn affects us, as the toxins enter the food chain.
The International Plastic Bag Free Day is observed on July 3 annually to raise awareness about the grave issues of plastic pollution and the serious threat that it poses.
Plastic, like all other bad things, is difficult to completely remove from our lives at this point because of its inclusion in almost everything you can lay your eyes on.
But, one small step for man, one giant leap for mankind.
The Style Salad understands the graveness of the situation and is thus committed to bringing products that are eco-friendly yet won’t make you any less vogue.
After all, they weren’t lying when they said ‘natural is beautiful’!
If you don’t believe it, we have a range of products to prove you otherwise!
As our first piece of evidence in favour of our case, we have our Coffee/ Travel Sipper Cups. They are trendy, re-usable, recyclable and environment friendly. Colourful and cute, these cups come wrapped in quirky quotes. You will absolutely love making them a part of your daily life. In a similar stance, we would also like to present our Bamboo Fiber Quirky Cups. Made of 100% bamboo fiber, they not only take care of the environment, but also take care of your portable coffee needs.
Moving ahead to our next category; bags.
We have a very aesthetic Net Shopping Bag that will put all the other bags to shame. Fashioned from natural cotton threads, these bags are spacious and sturdy. These bags are specifically designed to seamlessly fit into your hands so that you don’t have to be bothered about anything else while you shop.
Next up, we have the Art Pouch. As cute as it may sound, the Art Pouch is every artist’s need! Whatever tools you have, the Art Pouch will store it safely. With 3 layers of pockets and a small pouch with a coconut button for storing small things, this Art Pouch will let you store anything you want in it (talk about Doraemon’s pocket! :P) and then neatly fold itself up into a rectangle that is easy to carry anywhere.
Last but not the least, we have a pack of 6 reusable Facial Rounds and Beeswax Food Wraps. These facial rounds deal in good faith with the environment. Don’t get it? Let us explain.
The facial rounds are made out of the perfect blend of cotton and bamboo terry fabric. They are good for the environment and also for your skin. Two for one, we would say. These dual sided facial rounds can be used for your daily cleaning, toning and exfoliating needs.
And as for the Beeswax Food Wraps, we don’t even have to tell you why you absolutely need to have them at your home! Not everyone has the appetite of Joey from F.R.I.E.N.D.S., so every once in a while, you might have to store a half eaten sandwich or a fruit. With our beeswax food wraps, you won’t have to worry about creating plastic waste.
With this, the trail of evidence ends.
But we will surely keep coming up with newer, better and more stylish things that are friends with nature.
Till then, keep it sustainable!
