Waste Not Want Not: Plates, Bowls, Cups

Hello Loves,
This is the start of my series "Waste Not, Want Not." I was inspired by a company I found on instagram and, I thought I would share it with you all. What if I told you that all of your plastic forks, cups and, plates that you use for parties are ruining the beautiful environment around you. If you found bio-degradable plastic ware, would you switch to it? Repurpose does all of this by making their plastic ware 100% compostable, free of chlorine, soy-based ink and, 3-4X Less CO2 ( which reduces your carbon footprint as well as, waste). Within 90 days of using your plastic-ware it becomes bio-degradable which means you won't be contributing to the massive landfills. I talked about future generations who may live in an environment of pure garbage because we are not using environmentally friendly items. The items are cut resistant, BPA-Free and, heavy duty. There are 16 billion disposable coffee cups purchased in America every year with 4 billi0on pounds of CO2 released into the atmosphere when producing these cups. This information is based on paper cups which have a plastic lining on the outside which makes it impossible for the cups to be recycled. Paper and cardboard produce 40% of solid waste in our landfills. Imagine the impact the disposable cups are having on the entire earth. Repurpose is available on Amazon to purchase and, is an incredible choice for helping our environment become a better place to live.

Have an enlightening and adventurous day,
