Zero Waste Lifestyle

Why is single-use plastic so bad for the environment? We buy it , we unpack it, we throw it away, Environment? No one is interested! Zero Waste Lifestyle is the way to go!


Not sustainable

We produce about 2.2 kg of rubbish per person every single day.

2.2 kg x 8 billion people x 365 days = 5.8 billion tons of garbage / year

We humans already throw 8.1 million tons of garbage in the oceans every year!

A lot of plastic is not reusable

A lot of the plastic is not reusable and lands in our landfills and even worse in our Oceans!

On every single scuba dive we find and remove plastic rubbish.

Plastic breaks down with time due to environmental factors like sun, waves, pressure, mechanical impact.

Unfortunately it will It take 500-1,000 years for plastic to decompose. If that happens at all. Some plastics are not decomposable and stay in the environment forever!

Particles now have been found not only in the fish stomach but also in the meat!

We currently only recycle 5% of the single-use plastic.

Wooden crates also make good use of Home storage solutions not only for food storage but also in the bathroom or laundry basket.

Single-use plastic banned

Single-use plastic banned throughout the EU 3rd July

  • Manufacturing single-use plastic products is prohibited, but stocks can still be sold. So it will not get better immediately but will have a rather long transition period.
  • Coffee to-go, schnitzel or Asian noodles in single-use plastic or Styrofoam boxes – finished your drink, eaten, throw away the packaging. It’s convenient and easy, you don’t even have to do dishes! Unfortunately, this causes a huge amount of single-use plastic garbage, apart from the fact that the packaging is sometimes not even recyclable or decomposable!
