#BreakFreeFromPlastic: Happy Shift Organics Wooden Cutlery
Our country, the Philippines, produces approximately 2.7 million tons of plastic waste every year. In addition, 20 percent or an estimated 500 thousand tons go to the ocean and other bodies of water.
Tons of waste also goes directly to the landfills, and the majority of it is plastics – straws, cutlery, plastic bags, and plastic bottles among others. Thus, our homes and cities are endangered to insalubrious waste management and continuous production.
As a part of the thriving solutions to provide products that are sustainable and could be a new ‘shift’ to the items that the community was used to, a conscious and constant effort shall be deemed necessary and useful.
Using Wooden Cutlery as a solution to the usual plastic utensils could save people a lot from using disposable tools that are considered an addition to the waste in the landfills.
Consuming Less Plastic
To help the environment consume less and eventually eliminate the use of plastics, especially on food products. Though it might be challenging at times because there are things that people have used that may be deemed convenient, refusing the practice of utilizing disposable cutlery would be a great help.
Declining plastic usage may still be challenging; thus, local products should also check with their social responsibility to offer items that utilize less plastic. The more social enterprises emerge and getting supported by the local community, the better it will be for both the environment and the social economy.
