Reduce, Reuse and Recycle (RRR)
Non-biodegradable products are the cancer of today’s world. The plastic lunch container that you probably threw away takes an average of 1000 years to degrade. By that time that one container could have travelled a long distance; it could be floating as one of the plastic pieces that make up the Great Pacific Garbage patch. Congratulations! You have just contributed a stepping stone towards the demise of the entire human and other living beings’ existence. Many of us don’t take the steps necessary for setting right one of the greatest wrongs we are obliviously committing on the Earth.
Non-Biodegradable items such as plastic are one of the many killers of marine life. This is owed to the fact that plastic doesn’t degrade easily, the plastic product breaks into smaller pieces which can be eaten by marine organisms. Due to the organisms not being able to digest the “food” that they have consumed, they choke on it and die. This not only affects the many smaller fishes but the entire ecosystem. A chain reaction is formed throughout the marine ecosystem. When a fish dies its predator-prey relationship is affected. Predator fishes whose population sizes solely depend on the population of the fish in question will slowly reduce in size as their one food source isn’t available to them this leads to other fishes and marine life slowly one by one dying like dominoes.
At the same time, due to technological advancements our race can find and calculate the amount of plastic collected by oceans and landfills and other areas. Therefore, the need of the hour is for us to focus on what easy steps we can take to reduce our carbon footprint. One way to do this is by implementing the 3 R’s in our lives, Reduce, Reuse, Recycle. Reduce the amount of plastic waste we generate/consume, Reuse the non-degradable product for another use, and Recycle the non-degradable item into something new.
Think about the amount of damage a single plastic product can create before throwing it on the road or in the gutter. The number of years it takes to degrade, the number of animals it kills. Make it a conscious effort to implement the 3 R’s in your life from the products you buy to the items you use on a daily basis in your household. Take the extra second to make the Wise Decision.
Whilst we speak about 3 R’s concept of reduce, reuse and recycle, Ecoworkx as a company are focused on recycle and reuse. The product portfolio of Ecoworkx is all related to recycled products like pencils, notebooks and many more.
The products which are of high quality are readily available on our online store to be bought.
One of the best-selling product is our TREEWISE PLANTABLE Pencils, Plantable pencils made from waste paper that grows to different plants.
It is also fun to use for the kids, by saying so, once the pencil comes to the end of its life, one can plant the pencil in a pot and see new life spring out from the pot. These pencils have different seeds embedded in each of them at the end of it.
These pencils come with a promise of “no breakage while writing or sharpening”.
