Have you ever thought about how our daily actions affect the planet?
This month marks World Environment Day (June 05), which is perfect to reflect, take action and avoid further harming our environment.
Although some people have begun to take measures such as recycling to reduce our carbon footprint (that harmful environmental impact that we all generate), it is time for you to learn more eco-friendly actions that you can integrate into your daily routine.
– Menstrual cup/ Cloth towels:
A sanitary napkin takes more than 100 years to degrade. If you are a regular woman and you calculate how many you will wear in your lifetime, it will probably be thousands! Also, they are not friendly to your finances… One solution is to use a menstrual cup, made of 100% hypoallergenic medical silicone, so it does not give off odors and lasts 5 to 7 years. On the other hand, if you are not interested in the product for internal use, cloth towels are another option.
– Second-hand clothes / Eco-friendly clothes:
Fast-fashion has become the second most polluting industry on the planet. To make clothes, toxins generated from textile dye are dumped into the sea, excessive water is used to create denim fabric and let’s not forget the tons of garments that are discarded to buy new ones.
When you need a new garment, visit second-hand stores or vintage stores and if you buy something new, choose organic or recycled textiles.
Conventional makeup is made up of silicones and petroleum derivatives that affect our skin, accelerating the aging process. Plus many are tested on animals. It is best to opt for makeup brands made from natural ingredients and choose those companies that are committed to reducing their environmental footprint and following sustainability principles.
– Naked vegetables:
There is no need to go to the supermarket and buy the vegetables covered in sticky plastic that does not degrade. Better take a reusable cloth bag and choose the vegetables in bulk.
Yes it is, as you read it. There is the shampoo bar and there are also conditioners. They come free of packaging, so you won’t be producing waste when you buy them. In addition, the ingredients are in their purest state and will act faster (and more efficiently) on your hair.
– Thermos (no more bottles):
Every minute, one million plastic bottles are sold around the world, of which 93% will end up in the ocean or landfill. It’s time to choose a thermos that you can use throughout the day and stop contaminating with bottles.
– Use of biodegradable products:
Products with this characteristic have properties to degrade back into the environment. What does this mean? That the product decomposes through the action of living organisms in a shorter period of time. For Bye Bites, respect and protection of the planet are a priority, which is why we have prepared a sustainable initiative: our Bye Bites Natural , the repellent with a 100% biodegradable formula, which also provides protection against insects based on natural ingredients such as eucalyptus. , citronella and lavender. Bye Bites Natural is the product that takes care of your skin… and the environment.
