Biodegradable Cigarettes Could Start The Eco-Friendly Future Of The Tobacco Industry

Cigarette Butt

It ends up the planet’s obsession with vinyl is far from over. Smoke filters — although yes, we are conscious of the worldwide sheeting crusade that in itself sounds a bit drunk? SURELY they transformed the planet’s largest type of clutter into something biodegradable ages past? Nope, they did not. And we are just as shocked as you are.

You see, smoke filters that are ordinary break-down into parts of micro-plastic when subjected. It is a much larger issue because of our oceans compared to straws.

Would you think of this? From Wikipedia:

Cigarette butts are the most usual kind of anthropogenic (artificial) clutter on the planet, as roughly 5.6 billion cigarettes have been consumed annually globally. Of these, it’s estimated that 4.5 trillion cigarette butts become mess each year. The cellulose acetate fibers utilized as the filter material that was overriding don’t readily biodegrade due to the groups. A standard lifetime of a lost filter is regarded as around 15 decades.

I feel sick.

Fortunately, a business in South Africa is occupied starting a cigarette (and packing) that is 100% biodegradable.

The creators, Adam van Wyngaarden and Davide Scott, began Smokey Treats (sounds interesting!), using their flagship product being’Woodland Craft Cigarettes’.

Apart from being 100% organic and having zero additives, Woodlands has been having filters that are biodegradable made out of the sponge. They’ll be dissolved — obviously — in around three weeks.

What makes this so unique? It. The filter is not made from plastic, but instead. The tobacco doesn’t include 600 sweeteners, it is only flavorful — American tobacco that is African. The smoke paper is not bleached with chlorine, but maybe perhaps maybe even just a tiny bit — and it made from wood pulp. The packaging hasn’t yet been laminated in plastic and coated by inks and metal. This leaves our Smokey Treats the option for the 21st-century shop.

I flew into Adam and Davide and was able for the next stats:

  • Woodlands craft smokes launched a couple of days before Christmas 2018. Ever since that time they have grown to provide over 225 shops in the Western Cape — also have only launched within their very first Johannesburg shop (Wesley’s Tobacconist at Rosebank Theater)
  • There has been a fantastic response from outside music festivals (they had been the sole cigarette sale over 15 of all SA’s most significant festivals this year ). It sounds festival organizers just like not needing to clean up a huge number of filters off the floor at its conclusion.
  • Sold over 30,000 packs (hence replaced 600,000 vinyl filters using wooden ones).
  • Smokey Treats is devoting 1 percent of net-profits towards planting trees along with food gardens in suburban communities across South Africa
  • SA’s first cannabis (hemp for today ) cigarette is from the pipeline.

I am not certain what to say. We are not huge fans of smoking. Without causing damage to the environment you should do it. If you are likely to smoke, then at least do it right. You can find some alternatives such as the Siberia snus for the brave, a smokeless form of tobacco that is also getting more and more popular. It is still possible to find out, although their site is business only. Since that is really a no-brainer — large tobacco requires a note and has their home in order. Nicely done, man.

World Faces Another Major Concern As Arctic Region Begins To Experience Record Heat Wave

There is a lot on everyone’s plate already with the COVID-19 pandemic that has yet to peak, according to the World Health Organization (WHO). With several countries facing both a public health and an economic crisis, we just couldn’t afford to deal with another major concern at the same period of time. However, for the past couple of days, we may have to deal with a very real threat that has already existed way before the coronavirus disease: global warming.

Yes, the threat of global warming is much around the corner, and if the recent turn of events are any indication, its unwanted effects is starting to be felt. For one, a Siberian town in the Arctic region has just experienced its record high temperature. For a place that is supposed to stay chilly even in the summer months, the heat record that was achieved in this region is only acceptable for a tropical location. This serves as a grave warning to us all that we should do concrete actions starting now in order to stop global warming.

Record High Temp In Siberian Town Is Even Above The Extreme, Suggesting That Global Warming Is Ramping Up Faster Than Expected

It has long been feared that due to global warming, polar regions will soon warm at an unprecedented rate, and we will see the ice caps melting as the sea level goes abnormally high. The north and south pole heating up is also expected to cause a series of extreme weather changes all over the world, affecting the lives of billions of people. Just recently, all these fears are starting to materialize.

Last week, a town in northeastern Siberia has set a new record for the highest temperature ever recorded in the in the Arctic region. A temperature reading of 100.4 degrees Fahrenheit or 38 degrees Celsius was recorded in the town of Verkhoyansk, which lies north of the Arctic Circle. This high temperature reading is unbelievably high when compared to the previous records at the location that have been kept since 1885. If you will need to travel to this place, you might need this guide for your own convenience and safety.

This reading has yet to be verified officially, but if it is indeed correct, this would be the highest temperature recorded at the northernmost Arctic region. This would also suggest that the Arctic region is actually warming at more than double the rate compared to the rest of the world.

One day after that record high temp reading, the same location reported another anomalously high temperature of 95.3 degrees Fahrenheit or 35.2 degrees Celsius. This may be enough to verify the alarming 100 degrees temperature reading set in the region. To note, the average June high temp in this Siberian town is mere 68 degrees Fahrenheit

Natural Ways to Clean the Kidneys

Among the other organs of the human body, the kidneys are considered as the most important one. However, stones in the kidneys seem to be a continual health concern. 

 

Kidneys play a vital role in the human body. One of the requirements to guarantee the good mechanism of the body is to have a regular functioning of the kidney. Included in the kidney’s constant health actions are detoxification, filtration of blood impurities, excretion of body wastes, and the regulation of fluid balance.

 

Generally, kidneys eliminate toxins and excess water in the form of urine. In case the kidneys stop eliminating these materials, stones production in the kidney arise. Kidney stones are substances in the form of either crystals or unrefined minerals.

 

Factors of kidney stones onset

 

Factors that may cause kidney stones are lack of water, high acidic urine environment, and urinary tract infections. The good news is that kidney stones are highly curable. This applies true if it is diagnosed early.

 

Symptoms of stones accumulation in the kidney

 

Accumulation of kidney stones in the body is represented by the following:

 

  • Extreme pain of the lower back, abdomen, and urinary tract
  • Consistent urge in urination
  • Presence of blood in the urine
  • Frequent sweating and chills

Natural Treatment to Clear Out Kidney Stones

 

Removing kidney stones is one way to cleanse the kidneys. There are many natural methods or home remedies that may help to remove such stones. However, many are still asking for what to drink for kidney stones? So, below are some natural ideas that may be a big help to care for the kidneys and are good examples of pro environmental products.

 

KIDNEY BEANS

 

Looking like the kidney organ, this bean contains a high amount of fibre. It also gives minerals and vitamin B that act to clean the kidneys. Another function of it is to assist the better operation of the urinary tract.   

 

DANDELION ROOTS

The dandelion root tea serves as a tonic drink which activates the production of bile. Drinking this is excellent in kidney cleansing and supports digestion.  

 

POMEGRANATE JUICE

 

The high levels of potassium can prevent mineral crystals formation. Due to this, pomegranate has the ability to eliminate kidney stones.

 

BASIL

 

Basil is both a natural diuretic and detoxifier. It helps in the removal of kidney stones by lowering the levels of uric acid.

 

APPLE CIDER

 

Dispersing of kidney stones through the use of apple cider is credited to the presence of citric acid. Aside from this, it also makes the blood and urine alkaline

Energy Efficient Insulated Pitched Roof

Our buildings are becoming more and more energy-efficient and may become almost energy neutral in the future. This means that the energy consumption of the buildings during the use phase represents an ever smaller minimal environmental impact. In this post, we focus on the environmental impact of an insulated pitched roof. Of course, through time, with consideration of wear and tear, there is also a need for roof repair regardless of the type of roof.

The CEN TC 350 committee is currently finalizing a harmonized European normative framework for calculating the environmental impact of buildings and building elements. The BBRI already applied the main principles from this standardization for the execution of the life cycle analysis below.

How does efficient flat roof insulation work?

Life cycle analysis

With the help of a life cycle analysis, one can objectively quantify the environmental impact of a product, taking into account its entire lifespan (from cradle to grave). However, there are several methods for carrying out such an analysis, which can produce very different results.

For example, one has to decide which allocation rules to apply in multi-output processes. These are processes that produce more than one product so that their impact must be correctly distributed among the different products.

Also, the choice of the functional unit can make a big difference. This is the reference unit used in determining the environmental impact and serves as the basis for the comparison. This unit is determined on the basis of the specific product requirements. Since the performance of a material mainly depends on its application, construction products are best compared at the building level or at the level of technically equivalent components. Thanks to this approach, the influence of a particular choice of material on the further construction of a component or building is also taken into account.

Finally, if one wants to study the full life cycle of a construction product or building, one must make certain assumptions that will influence the end result. For example, one must try to make a correct estimate of the transport and the lifespan of the materials, the waste processing method, etc.

Analysis at the element level

Below we compare the environmental impact of different insulation materials in a pitched roof. We use 1 m² horizontally projected roof surface as the basis for the comparison. This surface is constructed as a rafter roof (38 x 175 mm with a center-to-center distance of 50 cm), where the cavities were completely filled with soft insulating materials (eg glass wool or cellulose) and the structure was covered with hard insulating plates (eg PUR ) according to the sarking roof method. We also approximated the energy consumption due to heat losses through the roof using the degree days method (with 1200 equivalent degree days).

The bar chart below shows the environmental impact of the various technically equivalent alternatives for an assumed lifetime of 60 years. This shows that the energy consumption due to the heat losses is significant during this period. The degree of insulation of the roof will therefore have a greater influence on the environmental impact than the nature of the insulation material used.

We also note that natural insulation materials, such as sheep’s wool or cork, do not necessarily score better than traditional materials. To illustrate the importance of the aforementioned allocation rules, we calculated two alternatives for sheep wool. Alternative A assumes that the sheep is raised only for its meat (the wool is a waste product and the environmental impact of breeding is fully attributed to the meat), while Alternative B assumes that it is also raised for its wool (distribution of environmental impact according to the economic value: 22.8% for wool and 77.2% for meat).

Finally, we note that the results differ strongly from those reported in foreign publications of, for example, the NIBE (Netherlands Institute for Building Biology and Ecology). This may be due to differences in allocation rules, functional units, waste treatment methods, impact categories and aggregation methods.
3. Decision
The BBRI has a number of analyzes of other building elements in the pipeline, which will be performed again according to the future European normative framework. Since these objective and transparent analyzes (technical annex available on request) will take Belgian construction traditions into account, they can become a reference work on environmental impact for the construction sector.

Catching Fly-tippers On Surveillance Cameras

What is the best spy camera? You may believe that the best ones are only those used for home security or police work. Many of the best surveillance cameras come in different shapes and sizes and are used for different purposes.

For instance, there are numerous ways wherein these surveillance equipment could aid the environment. They could be utilized to put a stop to or reprimand behaviors that aren’t friendly to nature, and to better the green and eco-friendly practices of people and companies.

Spy Cameras to Help the Environment

Fly tipping is the unlawful dumping or disposing of waste rather than making use of the allowed legal method like the use of authorized garbage dump or curbside collection. Not only is it unhygienic and unappealing to see, but fly tipping is also inconsiderate, thoughtless as well as antisocial. The illegal discarding of rubbish, big furniture and appliances, building rubbish, as well as industrial waste could be tremendously damaging and detrimental to the environment as well.

Harmful chemicals coming from domestic and electrical appliances, paint and/or industrial places, could taint the soil. Moreover, hazardous rubbish and waste dumped in natural expanses could hurt or even kill wildlife. A variety of discarded items could take several decades or longer to decompose or disintegrate, where some bring about more ecological harm as they degrade.

Spy Cameras Put off Fly Tippers

There are some reasons as to why many individuals fly-tip, one is that they think they could do it without getting caught. They usually fly-tip at night in the darkness and speed away as soon as they have discarded their rubbish. Since officials don’t have a clue or trace of the culprit, there are frequently no repercussions for them. This is predominantly the circumstance in the rural regions.

Not only could spy cameras put an end to this kind of actions in its trails, but could also help to maintain the cleanliness of the area, protect wildlife and green expanses, as well as send an extremely clear message to people that fly tipping isn’t to be allowed and tolerated. They could catch the culprit while doing the act, capture their faces on cam as well as their unlawful nocturnal behaviors. With the impressive advancements done, surveillance cams could be installed almost anywhere, especially in common areas where fly-tipping is usually done such as the woods, streets and rural regions.

The government, law enforcement agencies, organizations as well as individuals could use such cams as a deterrents or warning for fly-tippers or anyone else intending to commit an offence. The footage taken by CCTV cams would also serve as a proof of the committed crime or offense making it possible for the law to act accordingly.

Modernized Fences: Modernized Home

Today, there are various alternatives for structure fences that contrast in style, usefulness, and material. Regardless of whether your fence is an expansion of your current home structure or built with usefulness as the centre, there are some incredible plan alternatives to give it a “cutting edge” look and feel that will make it emerge from your neighbours’.

Here are a few things you should take into consideration when consulting a fencing company.

Horizontal Fences

Give the traditional wood fence a cutting edge bend with level supports that spread the posts. You can leave a wide space between supports for additional permeability and wind current, or position them near one another for full protection. Wide wooden braces give a smooth and current look, and you can recolour them to coordinate the shade of other wood structures in and around your home. You can even stain various braces in various shades to make a custom example. Wood brace wall enables you to pick the sort of wood look you need, from hearty Redwood and Cedar to all the more top of the line alternatives.

Go for Something Luxurious

Building a slatted wood fence with hardwoods – like Mangaris and Brazilian Ipe – will put your fence at the highest point of the notorious neighbourhood pecking request. These exquisite hardwoods require progressively significant speculation, yet they are without a doubt the greatest of all fence materials. Hardwoods keep going for quite a long time. Like Teak wood, Mangaris and Ipe will hold their structure, and turn dark in shading after some time. Development of a hardwood fence requires a sounder basic base, as the wood is a lot heavier than softwoods, similar to Redwood and Cedar. 

Procuring a contractual worker for either roofing company Toronto with Skylight prices
 or a
fencing company guarantee development goes easily is suggested for the top of the line hardwood wall.

Transparent and Opaque

How about transparent and opaque? This rendering for a home in India demonstrates the ideal transaction of hazy and straightforward surfaces. The huge, soot square fence (with a decent trimmed example on one side) has an unmistakable glass top and decreases out flawlessly into a transparent metal door.

Make Climate Change Concrete With Street Games

Under the title “Downpour!” Geographer Jana Wendler developed an exciting city game in Manchester. This is the first time that most of the players have even dealt with climate change in their immediate environment

As is well known, climate change is an unattractive thing that triggers negative feelings – and which one is therefore happy to ignore. A socially constructed silence spreads around the topic. In view of this starting point, what could be more obvious than approaching the seriousness of the topic from the opposite side, that is, from the game? Manchester geographer Jana Wendler tried it out – with a city game for adults.

Climate Change – the Video Game

The so-called street game approach is becoming increasingly popular because adults solve all kinds of tasks. Sometimes they hunt zombies, sometimes they have to do a kind of scavenger hunt in the electronically networked city of the future. With these games in public space, they not only practice one of the most basic forms of expression in human culture – but they also set out to discover new references in the midst of the built environment. Just playful. The trend is so popular that PlayPublic was already an urban games festival sponsored by the German Federal Cultural Foundation in Berlin.

Captivating game idea: avert a flood as an urban crisis manager

What is fun with zombies is also easy to achieve with climate change – as the project by Jana Wendler shows. In any case, the fun of the game can be seen by the protagonists who set out in this video as civil protection officers to set up an emergency plan for flood protection. Downpour! (English for cloudburst) is the name of the city game, in which five participants slip into the role of urban crisis managers. “Imagine: It has been raining for four days and the river banks are already collapsing,” is the captivating initial scenario. “The flood risk is high – and you and your team will be sent to avert the crisis. Can you save the city?”

The five-hour Manchester Flood Risk Advisor’s round of play, which lasts only about an hour, begins in a “situation center” where they have to decide which part of the city they want to protect with dams. Then it is a matter of measuring the water level at the nearest river. Finally, private landowners must be persuaded to flood their meadows to protect the city. Finally, there is a debriefing with the city mayor (represented by an actor) with the order to develop a flood prevention program.

The winner is whoever develops the best flood protection concept

The concept ideas developed by the participants then met reality in the future, so to speak: whose proposals actually protect Manchester best from the heavy rain that can be expected in the course of climate change, the game has won. “Two-thirds of the teams” won “, ie saved Manchester,” Jana Wendler remembers the rounds of Downpour developed for the Manchester Science Festival! “But there were also groups with high scores that were simply unlucky and ended up having a very strong storm.”

The advantages of street gaming as a form of communication are obvious: As with classic strategy games, the players deal with complex situations and scenarios; the realistic reference to the (possible) present increases the playful appeal. At the same time, the whole person is in demand, because in addition to the cognitive level, social interaction and sensual experiences also come into play. The scent of the big city, the sound of asphalt, the stony reality of urban space – all have a direct effect. Perhaps the most important aspect of the gaming method has to do with slipping into other roles: Passive viewers of climate change become actors. The players experience a moment of self-efficacy – a key term in modern didactics.

For the first time ever, many players were made aware of climate change

However, what is supposed to be enjoyable requires serious and intensive preparation. “It starts with months of research,” says Wendler. The game can only succeed if it follows realistic framework conditions. “To do this, we looked at previous flood and heavy rain events interviewed experts and researchers, and interviewed those affected.” The preparation apparently paid off: 73 percent of the participants in the Downpour! Game in Manchester stated in an evaluation that they had “learned something”. Even 85 percent were concerned with climate change in their city for the first time thanks to the game.

Looking for other games that involve a lot of thinking? You have to play the Rise of Kingdoms. Check this website for more details. Indeed, the game will require a  lot of thinking.

Simple Ways On How To Help The Environment

Pollution is one of the main problems of the environment today, global warming is the common impact of this problem. People need to be aware of what are the things they could offer the environment or in other words what they can do to help save the world.

There are many simple ways that may help the environment in saving them today and will start in every individual own little way. Thus, today people are able to buy appliances for their own protection at home with dust and other forms of pollution. One of the common products every individual can get is the vacuum ByPurify canisters– it is one of the effective ways to start with. 

 

Ways In Helping To Save The Environment 

 

Recycle.

People need to be aware of the fact that plastics are the main problem and to gave polluted soil, air, and surroundings. Thus, there are many countries today that the government encourages their people to stop using this especially in the market or other department stores. Recycling can stop to worsen the different natural disasters in this era, there are cases in the world that because of so much garbage of plastic soil is being contaminated and the water cannot flow the way it used to. To recycle is to produce another product out of something, however, it is more practical to use organic products in helping to save the earth. 

Plant Trees.

There are places in the other part of the world today that are having a hard time to save their environment. Planting trees is the most common way every individual can help their own country, the reason why a lot of NGOs take their steps also to the problem of the environment. Also, the government would encourage their people to plant trees on their own, they can do this in the backyard or just volunteer themselves to every program that will be implemented. 

 

Endnote 

There are many products done by the people and with the help of technology today that may help the people to save the earth. People need to be aware of the fact that only human beings can destroy the environment and so they are also the only key to saving the Earth.

Commuting in a Green Way — Hoverboards

I do not need to explain to you just how the atmosphere is, if you reside in town or do the job there. I depart again and then live in town for extended intervals, the surge of air that strikes me once I leave constantly reminded me. And I do not need to let you know the reason behind all that lousy air and pollution. It is the sanitation section that is taxed, the factories and naturally, every one the cars that have difficulty and lineup on the roads. To list a couple.

I am not saying that we are able to wave a magic wand and get rid the pollutions of all however I do understand that ways of transportation can help.

Hoverboards are a wonderful method whilst doing your job to traverse a town while they are not ideal.

Similar to skateboards, hoverboards, take a few exercise, but as soon as you get the hang of it, you will be taken by them everywhere. Batteries power them, therefore there aren’t any gas emissions. The typical American spends about $1,400 a year. That means it is possible to see the savings for a single automobile only in the price and emissions. You must get to work, although Nobody enjoys it, particularly in city traffic.

You walk, ride even a bus, or a cab for your own job, if you reside in town. If you’re bored of being part of all that exhaust spewing from vehicles, then there is a hoverboard your thing to do.

Hoverboards provide a range of 8-16 mph charge, which will be lots of range and possess a charge time of hours. You may use them everywhere bicycles can proceed and they’re quick enough to catch you. Faster than if you relied on the city roads that are gridlocked. Hoverboards have rates of approximately 6 to 12 MPH. Get them at this link – https://www.thehoverboard.co.uk/ – NOW!

Environment Friendly Fishing Gears

Due to the developing technology, the industry of fisheries is also included in this kind of innovation. Eco-friendly technologies are also adopted by several fishing gears of today’s time. This innovation is truly beneficial for both the fisheries and the environment. They are also one of those eco-friendly items that need to be using this 2019.

Eco-friendly Fishing Gears

Here are some examples of fishing equipment that already adopted the technological innovations.

Kort Nozzle

This is a boat propeller that helps to enhance the use of fuel efficiency until 22.42%. Since it saves energy consumption, this fishing equipment is environment friendly.

Tuna Ring

Typically used subsequently when fishes are caught through hand line, tuna ring handles those fishes. This works in the event that the hook on the different types of fishing rods is bitten by the tuna. Reducing the fish movement is the primary purpose of this fishing tool. Moreover, it enhances the process of fishing as well as improving the quality of the fish after being caught.

The Criteria for an Eco-friendly Fishing Gear

Increasing the productivity is not always the goal in the improvement of fishery industries. They should also include the characteristic of being selective in order to diminish any endangered marine bio-diversities which had been caught in unintentional way.

Let us use the purse seine improvement as one of the fishing gear. It creates the waring or one type of fish nets more productive. Waring is commonly used to capture oceanic fish species within the North Coast of Java. But, sad to say, the net size improvement persist to reduce thus, lowering the sustainability of fish species in Indonesia.

The Struggles in Utilizing Environment Friendly Fishing Gear

The improvement of technology within the fishery industry does not give assurance of the fishermen’s ease of adoptability. Similar with other industries, step-by-step procedures are needed to be implemented when pursuing technological development within the fishery industries. It starts from the researching method, then proceed to technological engineering, and performing trial.

This procedural method is most commonly utilized via the improvement of LED innovation in the field of fisheries.

Primarily, the purpose of this is to avoid by-product sourced from ETP marine species. Subsequently, the adoption, which is an essential process, is coming right next once the outcome of the technology fishery study is effective.

The Fight Against Plastic Straws Is Not Where Our Battle For The Environment Ends

It is expected of the children to take good care of its mother. Perhaps this is the reason why we have always cared for Mother Nature ever since we were little kids. It is us, humans, who live in this world and we owe it to nature whatever we are enjoying right now. Therefore, it is our duty to protect the environment and stop its further degredation.

Unfortunately, as the years go by, human practices became the very reason why the environment is facing a grim future. This is certainly a long way from how we were as children when we were taught how to pick up the trash and dispose them properly.

It seems like all those lessons that we learned in school, from segragating waste materials to recycling, have all been forgotten.

One of the dangerous practices that we have learned and adapted to is the mass production of plastics. There are many things made of plastic that we throw right away after use, and one of those is plastic straw. It is not surprising that billions of plastic straws end up in the trash bin every day, and the sad part is that some of these plastic straws make their way to the ocean, threatening the lives of marine animals.

The Answer To Stop The Increase Of Plastic Straw Waste Is Not As Simple As It Seems

Many people have started to use alternatives to plastic straw in drinking beverage. The solution is to come up with a straw made of some material that can be reused instead of directly thrown away. Thus, metal straw became a popular solution to the ever-growing problem with plastic straws. Granted, this can potentially bring down the number of plastic straws disposed in restaurants as people will no longer have to throw plastic straws after every meal. Instead, they can just bring their reusable metal straws with them and simply wipe them after using.

Unfortunately, supporting or advocating the use of metal straw may not necessarily put an end to all our problems with plastic waste. This is because the ones who are still producing plastic straw must be the one to fix the problem first.

Even though metal straw is there as an alternative to plastic straw, its cost is quite expensive that it is unlikely for someone to buy one at the store for his or her own use.

People can just stick with the usual plastic straw that is very accessible. The same goes with the eco-friendly items that we can use to save the environment, but in reality, purchasing them will cost hefty of bucks.

It is our duty to provide Mother Nature with high level of security so it will remain protected until the next generation arrives to enjoy it. When it comes to security, nothing compares with what Ring vs Ring Pro has to offer.

The Aesthetics Industry Are Going Environmentally Friendly

Cosmetic products and other beauty items can cause some ugly impact on the ecosystem, stuffing landfills with waste and wrecking our waterways. Fortunately, beauty companies (large and small) are upgrading their sustainability goals, prioritizing proper sourcing of raw ingredients, applying earth-friendly production operations, and trying out innovative recycling applications.

All of us have an important part to play in making our world a better place. Even the tiniest actions make a huge impact, down to the styling products all of us use in our curly hair. So what can we do to help?

The Main Issue: Poor Use Of Resources.

Plant ingredients used in creams, lotions, and shampoos. The way these plants are grown makes an impact on local communities, the ecosystems, and the product’s general carbon footprint. Among the best examples is the use of palm oil which is commonly found in many cosmetic products.

Random construction of palm oil plantations in Malaysia and Indonesia has destroyed rainforests. Research shows that deforestation releases an even higher percentage of carbon dioxide into the air than all the vehicles throughout the world.

Likewise, most personal care product lines make use of water in the process of manufacturing. It is also a primary ingredient in these products. The accessibility to clean, potable water is likely to go down by 2050 due to issues like climate change, contamination, and an increase in demand.

What are companies doing to help the environment?

Major companies in the aesthetics industry are making key changes.
