Environmental pollution from single-use plastic.
Studies found that more than eight billion tonnes of plastic waste have been produced worldwide since the 1950s and 80% of it still pollutes our environment, destroys ecomechanisms or floats in the sea.
Especially in industrialised countries like Germany, the consumption of resources is enormous. Here, about 25 kg of plastic waste is thrown away per person every year. Once plastic is in the environment, it stays there or decomposes into microplastics, which then end up in our groundwater.
Why is plastic so dangerous?
For humans: Microplastics are now found in more and more food.
The latest findings show that tiny residues can even be found in milk, honey and drinking water. These can be carcinogenic and cause serious damage to health. According to the WWF, we humans ingest up to 5 grams of microplastics per week through our food. That is equivalent to one credit card.
For animals: Wild animals and birds, but especially sea creatures are affected by the plastic problem, as they can get caught in it, injure themselves, eat it and choke on it.
For the ocean: According to a study by researchers at the University of Georgia, there will be more plastic than fish in the ocean by 2050. Plastic is polluting our oceans.
We care about the environment
We, that's Jannes Meier and Nicolas Pless, started at the end of 2019 with the mission to ban microplastics from private households and to reduce the use of single-use plastics. We believe that consumers have the power to change existing economic systems. We ourselves can decide which products we consume and which we do not. In this way, we have a direct influence on the production chain and can thus take responsibility for our environment. Together with our customers, we want to make the world a cleaner place, starting right at home.
