Is there such a thing as environmentally safe packaging? GREENWASHING Plastic

Is there such a thing as environmentally safe packaging? GREENWASHING Plastic

If we care so much about being natural, why does Cloud 9 Naturally use plastic?

Packaging cosmetics does not have easy answers. There is not a single, good solution to choose from. Instead, there are a whole lot of green washing (making something sound safe and environmentally friendly while hiding the truth).

So, what are our choices? Plastic (boo, hissss), paper (only works for some products), aluminum (not bad, I heard it can be recycled), glass (yay!) At least that is what we have been greenwashed into believing.

PLASTIC:

Yup, it’s bad. The only good things about it is that it is cheap, light weight for shipping, and comes in any shape, size and colour you want. Everything else about it is bad. But those three things are significant. I can ship a box of 350 jars to my door for about a quarter or more of the cost of glass. And when shipping our my product to customers, it costs a whole lot less. In some cases, up to half the cost.

Glass needs to be wrapped in protective paper or plastic bubble wrap to protect it during shipping adding to the environmental impact. Plastic does not. Another pro for plastic.

I can easily get 1 litre plastic bottles all over North America. Glass, not so much. The selection of glass is getting harder to find, not easier as you would think it would be due to the phasing out of bad plastic.

The weight for 100 bottles? approx 10kg. The weight of 100 glass bottles: 44kg. Now times that by 10 because we usually buy 1000 at a time.

It doesn’t take a mathematician to figure out that the cost to ship 1000 bottles to my door for just 1 size bottle is significantly more than plastic. Now, to ship a filled, glass bottle to my customers, wrapped in bubble wrap is costly, takes more gas (to get it to me and then my customer), and a whole lot of plastic wrap for something that big as well as the worry that it is going to reach my customer in one piece.

Do we have to use bubble wrap? No, there are paper products (which means cutting down trees just to wrap glass) out there but they are not as effective at protecting glass from breakage and scratching while shipping. We have used peanuts and you can buy biodegradable ones but they are more costly and end up in the landfill. All in all there is a whole lot of wastage to ship glass compared to plastic making it not as environmentally friendly as we are lead to believe.

Pros:

  • Easy to find, comes in all shapes, sizes and colours
  • Light weight for shipping saving on fuel and costs to ship
  • No extra wrapping needed/not breakable
  • Can be recycled

Cons:

  • Really, really bad for the environment from the toxic chemicals used to make the products to the lack of being biodegradable and ending up filling landfill.
  • Most people don’t recycle or have the option to recycle
  • Causes harm to all animals and fish
  • We do use recycled plastic when we use plastic containers for some of our products. It is not optimum but it does help a bit.

Hello everyone my names are ALEX JACKSON from the UK, I want to use this golden medium to appreciate Doctor Abdul a great spell caster for helping me retrieving back my relationship with my ex lover when he ended and turned back on me for quite a long time now (6 months ago). He performed a spell for me and within 48 hours after the spell had been cast I received a text from my ex saying that he is sorry for the pains and tears that he had caused me and that he will not do such a thing to me again in his life. I was surprised but later accepted him back again. Anyone that is in the same line of problem or different one that wants to contact a spell caster should happily contact Doctor Abdul now on this email address.doctorabdulspellcaster@gmail. com or message him through his Whatsapp +2348108728256

REAL LOVE SPELL CASTER PRIEST WISDOM THAT HELP ME SAVE MY RELATIONSHIP.TEXT OR ADD HIM UP ON WHATSAPP: +2348124644470

My name is CLARA JAMES .I want to give thanks to PRIEST WISDOM for bringing back my ex husband.No one could have ever done me believe that the letter I’m about to write would actually one day be written. I was the world’s biggest skeptic. I never believed in magic spells or anything like this, but I was told by a reliable source (a very close co-worker) that Trust is a very dedicated, gifted, and talented person,It was one of the best things I have ever done. My love life was in shame; I had been through two divorces and was on the brink of a third. I just couldn’t face another divorce, and I wanted to try harder to make our relationship work, but my husband didn’t seem to care. and he broke up with me again. I was confused and did not know what to do again, rather they got in contact with PRIEST WISDOM.He did a love spell that made my husband come back to me. We are now very much happy with ourselves. PRIEST WISDOM makes him realize how much we love and need each other. This man is for REAL and for good. He can also help you to fix your broken relationship. I had my husband back! It was like a miracle! He suddenly wanted to go to marriage counseling, and we’re doing very, very well, in our love life. contact email Supernaturalspell0@gmail.com or text or add him up on whatsApp at: +2348124644470 his web page https://supernaturalspell21.blogspot.com/ or go to his page https://web.facebook.com/PRIESTWISDOM11
