BECAUSE TOGETHER WE CAN CHANGE THE WORLD!
Earth’s Brew was created to share this most incredible water with the world. The company made a decision to not have any in the packaging and distribution of the different products we create. Further, it is the goal of Earth’s Brew to pressure plastic mongering companies to make a change to canning in their product offering. Plastic, whether recyclable or not is bad for maintaining the quality of the water, and the quality of our world.
Our canning and glass programs are an essential part of our sustainability efforts. By using eco-friendly packaging options, we can reduce our carbon footprint and minimize waste. We will also work with local organizations to support environmental initiatives and raise awareness about the importance of sustainability
LOOKS REFRESHING RIGHT?
We will also work with local organizations to support environmental initiatives and raise awareness about the importance of sustainability 11% of household waste is plastic, 40% of which is plastic bottles. A plastic cup can take 50 - 80 years to decompose. An estimated 13 billion plastic bottles are disposed of each year. Plastic bags and other plastic garbage thrown into the ocean kill as many as 1 million sea creatures every year.
The Great Pacific Garbage Patch is a large accumulation of marine debris located in the central North Pacific Ocean. It is often described as a "patch" or "gyre" because the debris is concentrated within a relatively defined area but is not a solid mass. Instead, it consists of a high concentration of suspended plastic particles, including microplastics, along with other types of waste.
The exact size of the Great Pacific Garbage Patch is difficult to determine because it is constantly shifting and dispersing due to ocean currents and winds. Estimates suggest that it covers an area anywhere from hundreds of thousands to millions of square kilometers. The majority of the debris is composed of plastic, such as bottles, packaging materials, fishing nets, and other discarded items.
The presence of the Great Pacific Garbage Patch has significant environmental implications. The plastic debris poses threats to marine life through entanglement, ingestion, and habitat destruction. It can also release harmful chemicals and microplastics into the water, potentially entering the food chain and impacting various organisms, including humans.
Efforts are underway to address the issue, including cleanup initiatives, increased awareness and education about plastic pollution, and the promotion of recycling and sustainable waste management practices. However, tackling the problem requires global cooperation and a comprehensive approach to reduce plastic consumption, improve waste management systems, and develop more sustainable alternatives to single-use plastics.
According to the United Nations environment program (UNEP), 300 million tons of plastic is produced every year, and not all of it is recycled. To put that into perspective, that’s equivalent to the weight of the entire human population.
Facts about plastic that you really need to know:
The future of sustainable packaging is characterized by innovative solutions aimed at reducing environmental impact and promoting a circular economy. Manufacturers and consumers are increasingly recognizing the need to address the issues associated with traditional packaging, such as plastic waste and pollution.
In the future, sustainable packaging will focus on the following key aspects:
Overall, the future of sustainable packaging will be driven by a combination of innovative materials, efficient design, advanced technologies, and increased consumer consciousness. By embracing these changes, we can move towards a more sustainable and environmentally friendly packaging ecosystem.
