  • Have you seen those straws with #iamnotplastic on them? BEWARE the clever marketing! They actually are a plastic! They are bioplastic made with natural ingredients including a plasticizer and though they aren’t made from crude oil, they are listed as β€œother plastic” or Symbol 7 under the plastic resin guide. To top it off, not only are these a type of plastic, but very few countries have the ability to deal with them after their use and therefore this product will sit alongside petroleum based plastic items for hundreds of years in landfill and in our oceans, harming marine life and found alongside our coastlines. In order to handle this product, countries need industrial composting facilities with the capacity to compost at 60 degrees Celsius for approximately 180 days - none of which are in the UAE or in fact most countries. PLA or corn starch products are not recyclable either, so right now there really is nowhere for PLA products to go but in landfill or ending up in the ocean. Neither is a suitable endpoint, and with only a 9% uptake of recycling in the world in the past 70 years of plastic consumption, can we really afford to wait another 70 years to get the industry up to speed to handle PLA? Wouldn’t it be better to have the end solution in place before mass producing a product that we are not capable of dealing with or have we learnt nothing over the past 70 years of plastic consumption? For replacements to plastic straws try stainless steel, glass, bamboo, paper or even pasta straws or even think whether you need a straw at all - these alternatives are truly not plastic πŸ“Έ @designbymariska Repost @azraqme . . #liquidoflifedxb #maketheswitch #filteredwaterdubai #filteredwateruae #stopsucking #choosetoreuse #noexcuseforsingleuse #iamreallynotplastic #plasticfreedubai #plasticfreeuae

  • What are some of the steps you have taken or will take to reduce your exposure to plastic chemicals? We will be giving away 🎁 a free home under-the-sink filtration system at the end of the month to one winner selected from participants who repost this and share the details of the changes you have made (don’t forget to tag @liquidoflifedxb πŸ˜‰) Our lifestyle exposes us to many plastic products and chemicals every dayβ€Ό Research suggests plastics may leach chemicals if scratched or heated and some of the chemicals in plastic products, such as BPA and dioxins may cause cancer. This month, lets THINK PINK and take steps to reduce our exposure and safeguard our health. . . #liquidofifedxb #thinkpinklivegreen #filteredwaterdubai #stayhydrated #fightcancer #breastcancerawareness #beatcancertogether #pinktober #toughertogehter #betterliving
