Boomi's Zero-Waste July
Boomi Army, this month let’s take action together to refuse single-use plastics. Down for the challenge?
Plastic Free July is a campaign led by the Plastic Free Foundation. Each year, millions of people around the globe take the challenge and choose to refuse single-use plastics. Their vision is like ours: to see a world without plastic waste!
If you don’t believe us on the huge negative impact of single-use plastics, here are a few important (and scary) facts from the Plastic Oceans organization:
- More than 8 million tons of plastic are dumped in our oceans every year.
- We produce 300 million tons of plastic every year, 50% of which is for single-use purposes. These are used a moment to remain on the planet at least several hundred years.
- For example, annually approximately 500 billion plastic bags are used worldwide. More than one million bags are used per minute, knowing that a plastic bag has an average “working life” of 15 minutes but will last centuries.
- And the numbers go on, for every single single-use plastic items. (https://plasticoceans.org/the-facts/)
The good news is: EVERYONE can get involved in making a small change which will collectively make a massive difference to our communities. But where to start?
The idea is to start with objects that you use in your daily life and work your way up from there. Single-use plastics are EVERYWHERE. You’ll come to realize that, once you start being conscious about them, plastics are hidden in all our daily habits. To begin, bring a reusable coffee cup and water bottle, dine-in at your local café, bring your own tote bags, refuse plastic straws or bring your own reusable one, start recycling properly (in fact you better do that one unless you want to be fined in Shanghai!)… and the list goes on! You can find tips on how to take your plastic-free journey to another level on www.plasticfreefuly.org where there are comprehensive guides on how to reduce your plastic waste from your home to your work and even your community.
The Boomi team will (of course) be joining the movement, and to help you on your plastic-free journey, we also provide a 30% discount on all purchases above RMB250 or USD37. Discounts will be automatically implemented during check-out until 31st July. Our products are here to help you easily swap out all single-use plastics in your bathroom because sustainability also starts from your home and pamper routine! Not only are they planet-friendly down to the packaging, they are also animal-friendly and better for you and your wallet.
What are you waiting for?
