Tired of seeing your bin full of throw-away cotton pads?

Tired of seeing your bin full of throw-away cotton pads?

To degrade or biodegrade - that is the question!

In order for packaging products or materials to qualify as biodegradable, they must completely break down and decompose into natural elements within a short period of time after disposal, typically a year or less.  Degradable products, on the other hand, are mostly oil-based and break down through chemical reactions rather than organically by microorganisms.  Degradable products do not break down completely and turn into organic material, instead they break apart into microscopic pieces which can still harm the environment.  check out this great link for more information: https://www.webstaurantstore.com/blog/454/biodegradable-degradable-and-compostable-whats-the-difference.html Stay tuned - EcoFeminii are...

Plastic takes 500 years to decompose

Plastic takes 500 years to decompose

The stats are astounding.  And utterly concerning.  Furthermore, some plastic items take up to 1000 years to decompose.  Let's not leave our future generations in crisis, and deal with the crisis we have right now.  We can do it together!
