Because single-use plastics suck.
The world's first useful synthetic plastic was invented in the early 1900s. Mass production began in the 1950s. Less than 70 years has passed, today we became so addicted to it, more than 200 million tonnes of plastic was manufactured every year worldwide. To put this into perspective, every year we are only able to catch around 90 million tonnes of fish globally.
From recent evidence, our earth is now home to 6,300 million tonnes of plastic waste. Most of them in landfills, but lots were washed into our oceans - today, the Pacific Garbage Patch is large enough to span across latitudes. Quite an achievement in less than 70 years huh.
And it turns out, plastics do brake down (!) - into tiny micro-sized plastics. Still plastic :( but way harder to clean up from our land and sea.
Ironically, our food system - although relying directly on the ecological functioning of healthy soil and water - is also a gigantic plastic waste producing system.
At Closed Loop Farm, I provide only the best quality, and I want you to have them when they are at their freshest, just like other farmers do.
However, I don't want to achieve this at the expense of our environment... Find Out How -->
