The world is plagued by various problems during this unprecedented time. Political tensions, issues in society, and - especially with this pandemic – the resources in our health system. There are environmental problems that have plagued us for a very long time. In our generation, we have technology and innovation to thank for making our lives easier. However, the amount of carbon footprints and CO2 emission we produce continue to skyrocket thus creating an imminent threat to our ecosystem if we don’t do something about it.
With that being said, companies are being asked to to comply with environmental actions: how to lessen their carbon footprints, the usage of alternative resources that are eco-friendly, and practicing eco-friendly habits to reduce waste. A lot of companies have adhered to these practices. Department stores have started to use paper bags more than plastic and other businesses have found alternatives in making their items from organic and reusable materials. However, others have continued to use plastics and other toxic materials. Beauty and cleaning product companies are some of the most toxic in the industry.
Come to think of it, these items are things we use on a daily basis. In getting ready for our day, self care, cleaning our surroundings, and improving our lives overall. However, we often fail to see the negative impact that these products create in turn for their uses.
Make-up kits, lipsticks, house cleaning agents, and other items use plastic since it's durable. However, the amount of plastic these items use is staggering. Moreover, it takes
years for plastic to degrade . This further adds to the problem of plastic pollution which – unfortunately – ends up in our oceans and streams killing marine life.
Second would be the amount of toxins contained inside of these products. It is said that the average American woman applies over 500 chemicals to her body before walking out of the house each morning. The amount of toxins in cleaning products is staggering as well.
