Its time to make a change, learn from our mistakes and make the future a better place! Im sure if everyone makes a small change, and lives a more conscious life, it will have an impact for the good.That does not mean to live a super strict life of being zero waste, but live conscious one.If its food, paper, plastic, wood, etc....that you waste, or rethink when you travel, how you travel. We all can make a lil to go a far way.

Interesting Fact's

Toxic Colonialism

Did you know that developed countries tend to sell their toxic and hazardous waste to underdeveloped countries? This practice is known as the Global Waste Trade.
By having richer countries cheaply get rid of their toxic waste by exploiting poorer countries is also referred to as toxic colonialism

What are POPs? 

Persistent organic pollutants (POPs), which is found in food of near by garbage polluted places. 

Plastic pollution in India and third world countries

In 1979, “the market for plastics” was just being seeded by the state-owned Indian Petro-Chemicals, and it was only in 1994 that plastic soft drink bottles became a visible source of annoyance.

Since then plastic waste has become a mainstay for the humblest waste pickers, especially women and children who try to scrape together livelihoods through the most vulnerable ways in this domain.

India's plastic waste generation has more than doubled in the last five years with an average annual increase of 21.8 per cent.

According to data shared by the minister, in the last five years, the quantity of plastic waste in the country has more than doubled, as the country produced 15.89 lakh tons of plastic waste in 2015-16.

The vast amounts of plastic waste that have already accumulated in the developing world are not being adequately managed. Landfill and incineration are the most common solutions, but burning plastics releases Toxic Chemicals. In reprocessing or landfill facilities, plastics often escape to choke rivers and coastal seas. Even lying around on the soil, plastics cause problems. A team of researchers in China found that the number and variety of insects and worms in soil was significantly reduced when LDPE – the kind of plastic carrier bags are made from – was spread over the earth. 

Plastic pollution sold to Indonesia 

Every day, people in Western countries in Australia, Europe and North America diligently separate their household plastic waste to be collected and sent for recycling. But much of it isn’t recycled. Instead it is exported – sometimes illegally – to Indonesia and neighbouring countries, polluting the air and affecting the health of local people.

The waste arrives by container, sometimes as a legitimate import, sometimes concealed in other shipments. And it's compounding a domestic plastics problem that generates  annually.

Indonesia is barely able to cope with its own waste. The World Bank estimates that one-fifth of the country’s plastic ends up in rivers and coastal waters.The government has sent waste shipments back, but they are often redirected elsewhere. For example, environmental groups Nexus3 and BAN found that just 12 of 58 containers returned to the United States arrived, Reuters reports. Instead, 38 arrived in India and the remaining containers were tracked to South Korea, Thailand, Vietnam, Mexico, the Netherlands and Canada.

A renewable resource, wood from sustainably-managed forests can replace plastic


This fast-growing renewable resource can replace plastic in items like tableware and drinking straws. It is lightweight, durable, and compostable.


In days gone by, many things were packaged in plain paper. And while better than plastic, paper can’t be recycled infinitely because every time it’s reused, the fibres get shorter, limiting its use. Luckily all paper except the glossy kind is safe to put in your home compost.



A biplastic composed of three natural components: lignin, cellulose fibers and some additives. The first really organic Bio plastic.

Berliner Stadt Reinigung

Whether it's our vehicle fleet, real estate portfolio, machinery or technical equipment - the environment is important to us. We are committed to clear climate protection targets vis-à-vis the Berlin Senate and signed our third climate protection agreement in April 2017. For example, we make a significant contribution to climate protection with our state-of-the-art biogas plant, where we ferment almost 70,000 tons of biowaste into climate-neutral biogas every year. We use this to fuel our gas-powered refuse collection vehicles. Around 150 of these are on the roads of Berlin - climate-friendly, quiet and free of diesel pollution.

BSR is the cleanup company from Berlin City.

Real Success Stories

Floating Resort on Plastic Bottles

  • A French entrepreneur built a floating island resort just off the Ivory Coast that is being held up only by plastic waste. The island, which has a hotel, a restaurant, a karaoke bar, and two swimming pools, was built with 700,000 plastic bottles.

Ocean cleaning project

Every year, millions of tons of plastic enter the oceans, primarily from rivers. And the plastic that’s afloat within the oceans isn’t going away by itself. To effectively solve the problem, we need to both turn off the tap  and mop the floor  at the same time.

The Ocean Cleanup, a non-profit organization, is developing and scaling technologies to rid the world’s oceans of plastic. Our aim is to put ourselves out of business once the oceans are clean.

Upcycling and Recycling Projects 

One of the many Upcycling projects is Terracycle.

Overconsumption and a throwaway culture have led to a global waste crisis. While even complex rubbish is technically recyclable, most materials are not profitable to recycle. As a result, waste piles up in landfills and pollutes our planet while virgin materials are extracted from the earth to create new products.

At TerraCycle, our mission is Eliminating the Idea of Waste®. Businesses, government entities, and people like you work with us globally to keep rubbish out of landfills or from incineration.

Through collaboration and innovation, we’ve developed the world’s first solutions in everything from recycling to reuse.

Plastic History 

Unfortunately Plastics have taken over the world, polyester was introduced in the 1950s, and polypropylene, today is one of the most used polymers in the world. It got its start as a commodity in 1954, becoming a very useful polymer due to its adaptability. Since then this industry has grown so much and so far, that even in the smallest tribes where common man don't reach, there are plastics.

Plastic as a material is genius, because its light weight and water proof. 

BUT : No one thought about getting rid of it! In the 50s no one thought about sustainability. Till today, most of us don't think about, when we use it. The old generation saved a lot of time by using plastics and the new generation just grew up with it.

Tips while shopping consciously

  • Buy Locally and from small producers/ artists
  • Buy Organic and Bio even if it costs more
  • Spend a bit more if its long lasting
  • Recycle, don't just rebuy
  • Ask yourself if you need it and if it harms the environment
