Every year, fashion brands and retailers send out around 180 billion single-use plastic poly bags with their products. These poly bags are often used once and then discarded, ending up in landfills, oceans, and waterways, and as they degrade their particles end up in almost everything else, humans included. As companies try to address this mounting problem they likely don’t realize they’re inadvertently fostering another.
Some companies are looking to paper as the solution, seeing forests as a ‘sustainable source’ for packaging. However, putting the world’s most vital ecosystems on the chopping block isn’t the solution to any problem. Ancient and Endangered Forests are one of our greatest hopes to address the growing climate crisis. Keeping them standing is essential for preserving biodiversity, holding back new pandemics, purifying air and water, and keeping our planet liveable. We simply can’t afford to lose them.
