Beat Microplastics with EcoGoTravel: Sustainable Self-Care for Travelers

Microplastics in ocean
Microplastics Invasion

Imagine a plastic straw, broken down by the relentless waves of the ocean, not into harmless dust, but into millions of invisible fragments. These minuscule marauders, no bigger than a sesame seed, are called MICROPLASTICS.

They're infiltrating every corner of our planet, from the deepest trenches of the Mariana to the honey on your breakfast table.

Researchers at Ocean Conservancy and University of Toronto estimate that American adults could be consuming up to 3.8 million microplastics per year from protein alone.

Understanding Microplastics and Impact:

Microplastics come in two flavors: primary and secondary. Primary microplastics are the manufactured kind, like the beads in facial scrubs or the glitter that graces festival goers. Secondary microplastics, on the other hand, are the breakdown products of larger plastic items, like that aforementioned straw, or the plastic bags fluttering in the wind.

The problem with these tiny terrors is that they're everywhere. They've been found in the Arctic ice, in the stomachs of deep-sea creatures, and even in human lungs. And while the science on their health impacts is still emerging, it's not a pretty picture. Studies suggest microplastics could disrupt hormones, harm gut bacteria, and even carry harmful chemicals into our bodies.

So, what can we do? 

Well, the most obvious answer is to reduce our reliance on plastic, especially single-use plastics. Here are some tips:

  • Use Refillable Containers: Opt for reusable water bottles, shopping bags, containers

  • Select Products with Biodegradable Packaging: Choose products that use biodegradable or compostable packaging over plastic. This includes bamboo, paper, or plant-based materials.

  • Opt for Wooden or Bamboo Personal Care Tools: Choose wooden or bamboo toothbrushes, combs, and other personal care tools instead of plastic ones.

  • Avoid Microbeads: Steer clear of products like exfoliating scrubs that contain microbeads, which are small plastic particles that pollute water bodies.

  • Support plastic-free brands: Look for companies committed to reducing their plastic footprint.
