“Water and air, the two essential fluids on which all life depends, have become global garbage cans”. (Jacques Yves Cousteau)
Hello everyone! Welcome to www.7Abloom.com and thank you for stopping by!
Global pollution of the seas and air is unfortunately caused by humans and in recent decades, the situation has become truly dramatic. One of the primary causes of pollution is the huge introduction of plastic waste both on the terrestrial soil and in the aquatic world.
Unfortunately, the cosmetics industry is one of the major causes of global pollution due to non-recyclable packaging or the formulas of some products that contain plastic microparticles; every year, in fact, the beauty industry produces around 120 billion plastic packaging worldwide and therefore not recyclable! A truly baffling number, right? : (.
Inside many cosmetic treatments we find difficult names such as polyethylene which is nothing but one of the most common microplastics, present above all in eyeliners and toothpastes. Needless to say, in addition to being dangerous for rivers and oceans, we find it directly in our home taps and therefore in our dishes…
Another very used product is for example the exfoliating scrub for face or body! Have you ever wondered what the microparticles that guarantee the scrubbing effect are composed of?
Well done! You guessed it! Plastic microparticles that end up directly in the pipes of our home.
In addition to plastic packaging, there are several components in many beauty products that create serious damage to the environment: BHA (butylated hydroxytoluene) and BHT (butylated hydroxanol), preservatives found in creams and make-up products and Oxybenzone that we find inside sunscreens and which is very harmful to the coral reef.
Can the World become a better place?
Sure! Finally, many cosmetic companies are beginning to follow strict regulations that prohibit the use of these ingredients and are gearing up to make their packaging recyclable and reusable.
There are solutions and alternative materials are truly varied and fortunately the cosmetics industry is also moving towards a greener and more eco-friendly choice.
We at 7Abloom use bamboo containers, which are recyclable and reusable and the ingredients we use are all natural and plastic-free.
Changing the world and making it less polluted is possible and is our task to choose the right products, checking the ingredients and avoiding unnecessary plastic.
These are small steps, but if we all try to pay more attention to what we buy, our planet will benefit from that and we human beings will avoid ingesting or spreading toxic components that are harmful to our health.
