Usually I’m writing about natural skincare, but as I have been so focused of reducing the plastic in my day to day life, I thought I’d share my findings. This is an ongoing process so I’d love to hear about your plastic replacements.
I think we’re slowly realising the cost plastic is having on our health and environment. For example, it breaks down, ends up in the ocean, fish eat it, we eat the fish-yuck! On an even more personal note, the chemicals that leach from the plastic into our food, mimic oestrogen and this can fuel diseases like oestrogen positive breast cancer. These foreign oestrogens are not good for my son or husband either so this is why plastic in my home, had to go! They say that 5% of cancer is genetic and 95% is lifestyle (food, skincare, environmental…) so it’s worth reducing our risk where we can.
