The Impact of Plastics on Our Planet

The Impact of Plastics on Our Planet

As consumers, we are using more single-use plastics than ever before. From water bottles and straws to packaging and even our clothes, it's estimated that we use 500 million plastic items every day. And while they may be convenient in the moment, the truth is that these items are having a devastating impact on our planet and our oceans.

Impact of Plastics on the Ocean

It's estimated that there are already 5.25 trillion pieces of plastic debris in the world's oceans, and that number is only increasing. This pollution is having a serious impact on marine life, with an estimated 100,000 animals killed by plastic each year. From ingestion to entanglement, plastics are posing a real threat to the health of our oceans and the creatures who call them home.

Impact of Plastics on Land

On land, the problem is just as bad. It's estimated that only 9% of the plastic we use is recycled, with the rest ending up in landfills or being incinerated. This not only takes a toll on the environment, but also on human health, as the chemicals in plastics can leach into the soil and water.

How You Can Help Reduce Plastic Use

The good news is that we can all do our part to reduce our reliance on single-use plastics. From carrying a reusable water bottle to shopping with reusable bags, small changes can make a big difference. Let's commit to making more eco-friendly choices in our everyday lives, for the sake of our planet and its creatures.

Shivas Stone Sustainable Crystal Water Bottle

What Shiva's Stone Is Doing To Help Reduce Plastic

With that being said, Shiva's Stone has made it a priority to help people around the world make the switch to reusable water bottle. Our one of a kind Crystal Water Bottles are designed sustainably with out planet in mind! Each Shiva's Stone Crystal Water Bottle is made from BPA-free glass, a safe alternative in comparison to plastic bottles which slowly release harmful micro-plastics into your water.

Moreover, making people feel like they've made a true difference is what truly makes us happy, and with that being said, we've partnered with One Tree Planted! For every bottle sold, we allow our customers to choose the continent in which they wish for us to plant a tree on their behalf. Not only will this help to reduce the amount of plastic pollution, but it will also help to offset our carbon footprint!

Until now, we've planted more than 10,000 trees globally (read more about: our impact). With your help, we've made a significant impact on reforestation efforts in the world's most prolific ecosystems, including the Amazonian Rainforest! Help us make a difference, one Crystal Water Bottle at a time.
