INNOVATION TO THE NEW YEAR
Today we can start a new tradition in our lives, in our homes
This year, we may be spending a New Year's Eve away from our loved ones. There is a strange situation where we are all alone at home or only see each other on the screen. If it's a different year than usual, let's enter the new year with innovation and inspire it with a few ideas… Perhaps what is new today will be the beginning of what is considered tradition in the future.
Plastics, especially single-use plastics, which are present in many areas of daily life, are considered one of the biggest threats to the climate and environment, from the production process to the micro plastic that leaks into the sea. More than 6 billion tons of plastic waste has been generated in the world since the 1950s, when it started to spread. We are talking about a garbage that does not go anywhere, does not disappear, creates giant islands in the oceans, and will remain in nature even hundreds of years after us.
During this period, increasing packaging, plastic services, disinfectants, all of them excited the use of single-use plastic. According to an article published in The Economist, single-use plastic increased by 250-300 percent in the United States alone during this period. There is so much plastic already, that even a name has been given: Covid garbage.
So what can we do? There is a lot we can do to remove plastic from our lives as much as possible.
Using cloth bags instead of plastic bags.
Finding an alternative to refrigerator bags, washing and reusing if necessary
To prefer glass instead of drinks sold in plastic bottles. Using flasks instead of bottled water.
Paying attention to plastic in clothes and prefer alternative natural materials.
Using soap bar instead of plastic packaged liquid soap.
Throwing plastic-containing packaging in recyclable waste containers. Making sure they are clean while doing this.
Today, as people who think about nature and food, we want our children to have the same thought.we must teach our children
The seeds we leave for the future start individually and turn into a collective structure. You say, "What can I do alone?" It is possible to realize it by moving away from the idea. Changing the world starts with the individual, and when this is instilled in children, there is no need for great heroism.
The legacy we will leave for the future; It is through thinking and respecting the whole planet, not the village, the city, the country. We have a planet that can survive today. It is up to us how to leave it to our children.
Organic certification is a certification process for producers of organic food and other organic agricultural products. In general, any business directly involved in food production can be certified, including seed suppliers, farmers, food processors, retailers and restaurants. A lesser known counterpart is certification for organic textiles (or Organic clothing) that includes certification of textile products made from organically grown fibres.
