At the forefront of the battle against plastic pollution with David Attenborough

The dangers of plastic pollution and how to deal with them

Our current situation with plastics isn’t new. It’s been going on for quite a while, and sadly, efforts to combat it have only managed to stifle the worsening of the problem slightly.

And that’s precisely what Sir David Attenborough has set out to do.

Famous for his wildlife broadcasts and firm environmentally-friendly stance, Sir Attenborough is now urging consumer goods manufacturers to think of the environment first and of profits later.

It’s all about the mentality

At the end of the day, it all comes down to the way we think and act. To the choices that we make. There are numerous throwaway plastic products, manufactured by countless brands. And while companies like Coca-Cola and Pepsi are responsible for a significant portion of plastic bottles and cups, they’re not the real problem. After all, they’re just businesses, run by people seeking profit. Right now, throwaway plastic packaging seems to be most suitable for their products, and they’ve gone with it.

Eco-friendliness is the only real solution to plastic pollution!

And by eco-friendliness, I don’t just mean positively-sounding campaigns or inspiring slogans. I mean eco-friendliness on the individual level.

Our approach

We’ve been cultivating our eco-friendly mindset for quite a while now, and believe us when we say that going at your own pace is the best approach. You just can’t expect to be comfortable with changing everything about yourself overnight. Not if you want to achieve any lasting results, that is. As we often say — green living isn’t a race. It’s not even a marathon. It’s a lifelong transformational journey.

So, our advice to you is simple — start small.

Introduce one change per week, or even — one change per month. Begin slowly phasing out the plastic products from your life, do some research in your spare time to stay on track and inspired, and most important of all — don’t annoy your friends and family about your “new lifestyle choice”. Green living isn’t a fad, and you should never attempt to push it on people. Instead, try leading by example, even if you don’t feel like a natural leader. Simply live your life better, and people will eventually notice that, for some reason, you seem like you’re better off. You’re happier, healthier and have more energy than before. And they’ll start coming to you with questions.
