How to use less plastic & LUSH Campaign against plastic


Plastic. Facts like 8 million tons of plastic in the ocean sound teriffying but we can't actually imagine the amount unless we're somehow involved. Dead dolphin in our bay was crucial for me personally to reconsider my plastic habits. The problem wasn't personal until now. Until it came to our ''backyard'' if you know what I mean. Does it matter to you? Does it matter to us? Nobody's perfect and I'm guilty of some bad plastic habits too. Thankfully, my beloved LUSH regularly reminds me of different environment problems. Hot topic about plastic in the ocean is being evaluated also by Lush. For this purpose, Lush brought out Turtle Jelly Bomb which highlights the danger of plastic for all ocean living being. Including turtles which often mistake plastic bags for their food - jellyfish. That's why, Turtle Jelly Bomb is full with algae threads that remind of plastic. You will enjoy cypress and sandalwood scent but bathe in comforting layer of jelly. The bright side is also that Lush opened first ever store in Milano, that sells only naked products. Hurray! Also don't forget you can always trade 5 Lush pots for a fresh face mask.

Plastika. Lepo je navajati dejstva o 8 milijonih ton plastike v oceanih, če si sami tega niti ne predstavljamo. Pred dnevi sem na spletu zasledila sliko mrtvega delfina v enem od naših zalivov. Z Mercator vrečko in plastičnimi mrežicami okoli sebe. Novica me je pretresla ker problematike enostavno ne jemljem dovolj osebno. Ne tiče se nas dokler se to ne dogaja na našem vrtu. Se nas še vedno ne tiče? Se tebe to še vedno ne tiče? Nihče ni popoln, tudi jaz sem kriva v kakšnih situacijah. Na srečo me LUSH velikokrat opomni. Pereča tema plastike v oceanih skrbi tudi Lush, kjer so za ta namen ustvarili Turtle žele bombico. Z njo želijo poudariti nevarnost plastike, ki jo želve in ostala živa bitja zamenjajo za hrano. Želvica bo pomirila z vonjem ciprese in sandalovine, alge agar agar pa bodo gladino vode spremenile v nežen žele. Lushev asortiman je danes že 40% nag, v Milanu pa se je nedavno odprla 1. Lush trgovina z izdelki brez embalaže. Blizu, kajne? Prav tako ne pozabite menjati 5 praznih posodic (ki se vedno znova uporabijo) za svežo obrazno masko!



Suggestions how to save yourself from plastic:

  • buy yourself a cute tote bag for the store
  • don't buy plastic straw, reconsider buying alternative metal straw
  • store Lush naked products in their metal containers
  • take advantage of beautiful glass water bottles and coffee cups
  • bring your snack in waxed eco-friendly paper - I'm highly impressed by Bee's Wrap. Beautiful, nice smelling and eco.


Nekaj mojih predlogov za manj plastike v vaših življenjih:

- uporabljaj večkratne platnene vrečke za v trgovino (upam da je to že samoumevno),
- ne kupuj slamic in zavračaj le-te v kavarni,
- Lush ''nagce'' shranjuj v njihovih posodicah (jaz imam že tri),
- umisli si stekleničko za vodo ali kavo iz bambusa ali stekla,
- malico si prinesi v službo v povoščenem papirju - ta Bee's Wrap me je nedavno navdušil!
