“It’s hard to scroll through your newsfeed without seeing something about plastic’s hazardous effects.⠀ ⠀ Plastic waste overwhelming our landfills, floating plastic gyres the size of small nations invading our oceans, plastic byproducts polluting our air, plastic production squandering our natural resources, marine life ingesting plastic particles (resulting in downstream food-chain effects for humans)—this man-made substance is a large-scale environmental toxin.⠀ ⠀ While convenient and versatile, many plastics, particularly water bottles, contain chemicals such as phthalates and bisphenol A. While the FDA has declared that BPA is safe at current levels occurring in foods, many health experts and researchers cite both chemicals as potentially harmful to human hormones and reproductive systems.”⠀ ⠀ Earth day is coming up soon—read more about why and how you should ditch the plastic on page 32 of our April/May issue of PALEO MAGAZINE. ⠀ ⠀ Would you like Paleo Magazine delivered to your doorstep?

Up all night making our Luscious lips 👄 lipgloss. This lip gloss is now completely vegan and deliscious! It smells and tastes like chocolate peppermint! Our sharing and giveaway contest continues through Monday so far one new friend has shared with over 14 people who are starting their plastic free journey! Yeah!!
Another stunning day here! Sadly this is not our kitchen, this is the beautiful kitchen of @cicelyandmay featuring one of their stunning candles. Have you tried them yet? I can’t quite decide which one is my favourite! Leaning towards Wild Mint and Amber Noir but they all smell amazing. They’re also chemical and paraffin free, so you can burn them worry free. Head over to our store to see the collection. We hope you’re all enjoying your Easter breaks. 🙏🏻💚🌍 #besustainablefolk#soycandles#handmadecandles
Photographer Stephen Mallon captured how the 2,500 New York subway cars used to create an underwater reef are providing a home for crustaceans and fish in the Atlantic. The project, run by New York's Metropolitan transit authority, ended in 2010. The structures provide nearly 400 times as much food per square foot as the sand bottom. 📸 @mallonfilms
♻️ I've been on a hunt of healthy products for the last two years and I can't explain how happy I was since I found @bitetoothpastebits ! Their toothpaste is: #fluoridefree#crueltyfree#vegan#plasticfree#madeinusa#fairtrade#sustainable Let's be honest, this is such an example of environmental and health friendly business! . . ♻️👏💚 Did you know that the conventional toothpaste pollutes the environment not just because of the plastic container but also because of its microbeads content? They are literaly micro pieces of plastic that are flushed into rivers and seas, where they attract toxins, threaten marine life and can reach the human food chain. Which also makes me think that we have been accidentally swollening micro plastic, right?! 🤢 We all know how important oral hygiene is for our health and research has proven that fluoride, the main active ingredient, does NOT prevent cavities and worse than that, its is extremely harmful for our health. It actually damages our tooth enamel, bones and organs, including our brain! . . 🇧🇷 Há dois anos já que eu estou na busca de produtos saudáveis e fiquei tão feliz quando encontrei a pasta de dente @bitetoothpastebits. Essa marca trouxe uma alternativa não só saudável para nós como também sustentável para o meio ambiente. Ela não contém flúor, é #livredecrueldade, #vegana, embalagem de livro, tampa de metal e reciclável. Isso sim que é um exemplo de empresa que da suporte a nossa de saúde e ao nossa planeta 👏💚 . . Você sabia que o creme dental convencional polui o ambiente não só por causa da embalagem de plástico, mas também por causa das microesferas de plástico presente na pasta? Esses micro pedaços de plástico são lançados diariamente em rios e mares ameaçando a vida marinha e podendo alcançar a cadeia alimentar humana. O que também me faz pensar que por todos esses anos temos ingerido esses micro plásticos acidentalmente 🤢 . . . 👇
This Easter me and these two went hunting for trash instead of eggs. It's insane how much garbage we took from our neighbourhood, water bottles and yogurts are definitely the big winners, they're everywhere. Every plastic is different and we have many variations out there but a water bottle can take around 450 years to completely degrade and some even up to 1000 years. They live more than us this is insane! @anupaya is challenging everyone to go out this weekend and hunt not only for eggs but for garbage too!
