We know that sometimes it is difficult to be aware of what elements we use in our homes and that, as a matter of habit, we have become accustomed to using “plastic” objects in our daily lives. According to the United Nationsevery year, we discard approximately 8 million tons of plastic waste into the oceans, endangering marine animal life and entering the human food chain. entering the human food chain.

It is very overwhelming to think of all this plastic mass we are generating. Therefore, the best thing we can do is to take small steps to generate big changes.

Tetrabrik containers


Okay. This is where we will stop because it is a more difficult process to conceive, but not impossible. In this case there are artists and engineers concerned about the environmental impact generated by excessive plastic pollution. There are companies such as

that are constantly seeking to implement the 3 R’s (Reduce, Reuse and Recycle). They use all the tetrabrik we generate and through upcycling (creating a new product from waste and transforming it with an added value) they transform the material into unique and wonderful pieces. Recycling is a very important option to avoid encouraging the “use and throw away” culture. If you want to know the process of elaboration, take a look at this

These are produced in an artisanal way and there are many associations of women and men who weave these baskets in a natural way. Excellent choice for the care of the environment!

Marble containers

It should be clear that marble comes from a natural stone and its extraction is done using techniques that are much more respectful of the environment. In addition, each piece is unique.

There are many more sustainable options to use in our daily lives, such as coconut packaging, banana leaf packaging
