‘We need people millions to do it imperfectly, instead of a few doing it perfectly—the words of Anne-Maries Bonn, aka the zero-waste chef.
What is sustainability- avoidance of the depletion of natural resources to maintain an ecological balance.
Knowing what do to with everything that we have already produced will be something that we and our children, and our grandchildren will have to confront. Dealing with this is one of the most extensive problems facing the peoples of the world today.
If last year has taught us anything, then it’s the fact that we are all in this together and coming together as a global community can happen.
But before thinking globally we have to think locally, actually in our own homes.
Take a walk into your bathroom, look around, and what do you see? Just in that one room, there are bottles of plastic, a plastic toothbrush and plastic tubes of toothpaste. All of us contribute to the depletion and unbalancing of the ecosystem one tube, one bottle and one toothbrush at a time.
But is there another way?
Thankfully there are things that you can do to stop your waste.
Take what we do at Bubblebrush. We make toothbrushes out of Bamboo handles and castor oil bristles, which only takes six months instead of 400 years to biodegrade! You can check us out at (https://www.amazon.co.uk/gp/product/B087CVGLR7).
That’s all in a toothbrush, and that’s only the start, go back and look again at your bathroom, You can change those plastic bottles for metal or glass. You can change the toothpaste and its bottle for tablets in glass containers! Once you start to see the easy changes, the possibilities begin to come out.
The best thing with these conversions/reimaginations is that its easy, quick and won’t change anything about your morning routine. It will pay dividends for decades to come.
Here at Bubble Brush, we have been helping the Buddy Bag Foundation since last year suppling the toothbrush that goes in the kid’s bags. When Karen OBE told me the trauma of children having to flee their abusive households in the middle of the night, it upset me (no child should have to go through that). We at Bubble Brush are proud to support the work that Buddy Bag Foundation do.
In these uncertain times, the BBF provides a haven of safety and security after fleeing a violent and dangerous situation.
A child’s future is precious, and so is the surrounding that we leave behind for them.
