If you have awareness, you are empowered with a choice. Each and every choice you make has the ability to make a positive difference on our environment, our community and your life!
What if you were to consider and think about the things you buy before you buy them?
Where do they come from? What will you do with them once you’ve finished with them?
At You & Bamboo we try to source and produce products in the most sustainable ways available, we consider everything from the packaging that the product is made of and what will happen to it when it is disposed, will it go into landfill and contribute to the waste issue, or can it be reused, recycled or composted?
You might not realise the impact that a single product choice has… But what if you were to consider your toothbrush.
Over 30 million toothbrushes are used and disposed of by Australians each year, amounting to approximately 1000 tonnes of landfill each year. That’s Equivalent to 567 Sydney Harbour Bridges being buried every year in toothbrushes!
You have a responsibility to yourself, your environment and your local community. Each and every purchase decision you make has an impact on you and your environment.
Be a conscious consumer and buy products that have a better impact on the environment!
