The Discussion

▶ Plastic vs. Silicone

Study shows that only 9% of plastic waste has been recycled globally. In principle, almost all plastic can be recycled. In reality? There are a variety of obstacles that stop us from recycling plastics. Plastic recycling does not always make environmental and economic sense to do so.

While silicone is definitely a better alternative to plastic in almost every aspect, silicone recycling is currently still difficult and challenging. It is safe to say that silicone outperforms plastics in almost every way, but is silicone the best solution?

▶ Conventional Cotton vs. Organic Cotton

Conventionally grown cotton is bad for the environment due to its high water consumption and pollution, soil degradation, greenhouse gas emissions and use of harmful pesticides and fertilizers. As the textile industry’s demand booms over supply, conventional cotton production is accelerated to fit the market, causing a greater environmental impact.  

There is no doubt that there’s an organic cotton revolution going on. What might shock you is that organic cotton only made up approximately 0.95% of global cotton, according to a 2021 report by Textile Exchange. What can we do to accelerate the transition process?

▶ B Corporation & 1% for the Planet

Both working towards a more sustainable future, 1% for the Planet was founded to prevent greenwashing, certify reputable giving and provide accountability. B Corporation, on the other hand, is a designation that a business is meeting high standards of verified performance, accountability, and transparency on various factors.

Some of the B Corp & 1% for the Planet members you have definitely heard of include The Body Shop, Aesop, Patagonia and many more. How do businesses benefit from sustainability certifications? 

Becoming a sustainability advocate is not as hard as you think. By learning more about sustainable living, shopping for recycled/upcycled products and follow sustainable businesses, you are off to a great start! Join the discussion and win a special sustainable giveaway! TGB Charity cares deeply about people, the planet and the future, and will continue to contribute to a greener future.
