Sustainable Products Are Our Future
In Singapore, an average of 1.76 billion plastic items is used which work out to covering 126 Gardens By The Bays, 94 Olympic-sized swimming pools and land mass of 3 Sentosa Islands.
Globally, plastic waste disposed of at landfills and in the oceans causes problems like water pollution. Also the plastic particles find their way back into our bodies and also hurts marine life, among others.
We can help to alleviate the problem with the use of sustainable products, which will not only cut down on plastic use, but also reduces our exposure to harmful chemicals found in plastic, like BPA.
Here are 5 sustainable products to help with your daily needs:
