Zero Waste is a philosophy that encourages the redesign of resource life cycles so that all products are reused. no trash is sent to landfills and incinerators.
If you’re passionate about the environment, it’s likely that you’ve looked for places in your life where you could reduce your waste. Whether you’re a business owner running a sustainable restaurant or you’re a stay-at-home parent looking to reduce waste, there are opportunities all around us to make the planet a little greener.
Lately we have been struggling to take the “right” decisions. This year we started, together as a couple, the commitment to reduce our plastic consumption as much as we can, but to reduce food waste as well. These last two weeks we noticed the trouble of taking decisions because, apparently, we haven’t got the perfect way to achieve both goals at the same time in some cases.
Nowadays, we all have something made with silicone: baking forms, lids, toys, menstrual cups… For us who want to try to live plastic-free and reduce our amount of waste, is kind of an issue because, to be honest, we can’t be 100% plastic free… not in our days when plastic is everywhere. And now silicone offers an alternative use (still chemically made) but with some differences to plastic. In the end, what is 100% natural?
But how we use those items and this material, is up to us, specially for how long.
This is an article that Ange, from My Minimalist Baby, wrote a few days ago, and we share it with you guys.
Hope you let us know your opinions about it. Do you agree? Disagree? Do you avoid silicone items at home as well? What are your thoughts?
