What we put on our skin & scalp has a direct impact not only on our body but also on our environment, our planet Making a switch to natural organic skincare (Beauty) to avoid chemical-based product application on the skin is a mindful movement. But does this mindful move ever push you to think with the same mindful approach beyond your skin, for our Earth
Often no and that’s simply because we want convenience, low-priced, on sale products labelled with natural and organic simply to satiate our desire of using a healthy product.
In the course we end up buying products made with plastic and sold in plastic without giving a cheek to the composition and the visible plastic packaging. Plastic can be found in shampoo, shower gels, face wash etc. to name a few.
And this in and out plastic is destroying us, aquatic life, and our entire planet. Hence recently people have started talking about the blue beauty movement to switch to sustainable and mindful choices that do not destroy the oceans and their ecosystem.
Be it blue beauty movement to save the oceans or waterless beauty to curb the use of water or clean- green beauty to make no use of nasties is a call to awake the consumer to rising deterioration in different areas due to chemicals in skin care products. All these 21st century movements are the result of extensive use of chemicals/synthetics in skin care products.
All those Brands who choose to go completely traditional making no use of chemicals/synthetics/ preservatives and plastic resonate completely with all past present and future movements to save us and our planet.
The skincare industry is a highly unorganized sector that needs time-tuned laws to make products consumer-friendly and environment-friendly.
This year on world ocean day, the Ministry of Environment, Forest and Climate Change is launching a two-month awareness campaign on plastic waste management to protect our oceans from the rising plastic pollution. More than 8 million tons of plastic end up in oceans making the ocean an apt dumping ground for us.
We may get rid of plastic from our surrounding but any plastic be it an empty bottle of shampoo, lotion, ketchup etc. when moved out of the house do not decompose and remains either on land or in the ocean for years and destroy the natural mechanism of other living creature and the mother nature.
Hence, it is really necessary that each one of us makes choices in day-to-day life that do not harm our oceans and marine life at all.
So here we bring to you one of the ways in which we can save our oceans from becoming a dumping ground.
No plastic waste generation – Make choices that are completely plastic-free. Plastic is just decades old cheap and convenience providing product hence now found everywhere. Buy plastic-free day to day use items like grocery, skincare, home cleansers, toys, furniture etc. This one move can reduce many tones of plastic usage; hence this drastically reduced plastic waste can contribute a visible healthy change in our oceans.
We all together should act every day to save our oceans rather than just on 8th June each year.
