Awareness is Key

       Awareness is the starting point for our society. Without it there is no motivation to change. Becoming aware allows us to understand things from different perspectives other than our brainwashed reality, filled with assumptions and biases. It enables the necessary guilt, shame and regret that will cause individuals who becomes aware, to change. It gives us a greater ability to regulate our emotions. Awareness of our problems is just as important as self awareness in order to change before it is too late, which is sooner than we want to believe. It's time for a reality check. It's time to finally acknowledge the facts. It's time to accept that you can ALWAYS do more.

How to Reduce Your Plastic Waste 

  1. switch to reusable 

-almost every plastic utility has a reusable/sustainable alternative; many that are cheap and easily adaptable

  2. switch to a safety razors

-ditch plastic wasteful razors and get a safety razor (fully metal)

  3. ditch gum (which contains plastic in its ingredients) and fish (which contains hundreds of microplastics)

Reason #1: Animal Testing/Abuse

bopnUMxhVegZpDQ-1600x900-noPad.jpg
88% of the top 50 beauty brands fund animal testing 
          Mice, fish, rats, rabbits, guinea pigs, hamsters, farm animals, birds, cats, dogs, mini-pigs, monkeys and chimpanzees are the subjects to constant, painful "testing" done by disgusting people that, if done anywhere else, would be illegal and extremely criticized. 
Why are we allowing animal abuse if we know it is NEVER acceptable? 

Reason #2: Dirty Chemicals

Toxic Compounds

     Many cosmetic products in the USA contain high levels of toxic compounds as well as toxic chemicals. The compounds, called per- and polyfluoroalkyls (PFAs), are linked to serious health conditions. An increasing amount of science has found that there are adverse health impacts associated with PFAS exposure, including liver damage, thyroid disease, decreased fertility, high cholesterol, obesity, hormone suppression and cancer.
