A medida que el interés de los consumidores en la ética verde crece en todo el mundo, los especialistas en marketing han encontrado una nueva forma de explotar esta tendencia reciente al tratar de hacer creer a las personas que pueden continuar consumiendo de la manera en que lo hacen sin afectar el medio ambiente, siempre y cuando sea “ecológico”.

Tips for Reducing Your Plastic Footprint
Greetings from my quarantine to yours! I hope you are staying well and safe whenever possible. I wanted to pop in and say “hi” since my social interactions these days are at an all-time low (for good reason) and I’ve found myself talking to inanimate objects. Nothing to be too concerned about, although my dresser and I are still not on speaking terms…
Finding A Balance
About 16 years ago, I was in a supermarket with a friend getting groceries for the week. The produce section was where our shopping trip began. It was also where my awareness began…
Océanos sin Plástico es una campaña gráfica para informar al público sobre productos plásticos desechables y cómo afectan el medio ambiente y por ultimo a nosotros mismos. En este blog les dejamos los fuentes de información en que se basó cada gráfica.
Every bottle of Le Rosé Bleu will prevent at least 100 plastic bottles from polluting the sea.
Le Rosé Bleu, a new rosé from Saint-Tropez in Provence, has been created with a global mission – to help raise awareness of ocean plastic, prevent it from entering the ocean and encourage people to discuss the issue over a glass of wine.
The holidays are quickly approaching and the shopping frenzy makes it hard to to be aware of the waste that’s involved with the season. Here are some ideas to gift with meaning, purpose, and without the plastic!
We are delighted to see Christine Wong’s #PlasticFreeFoodie project continuing on. Volume 2 of her highly popular publication features 60 mouthwatering recipes from 50 inspirational food Instagrammers – all made from ingredients free of plastic packaging and accompanied by photography that is as much art as the culinary creations themselves.

Little did I know that my life would change so considerably after watching A Plastic Ocean. While I’ve always been conscious about reducing, reusing, recycling and repurposing, I never considered that one could actually refuse plastics, let alone inspire others to do the same. Sure, I always say “no” to straws, plastic bags and cutlery, but that was about the extent of it. At the same time, I was getting more and more annoyed to be given plastics at every turn when purchasing food. I have since found ways of going around this, by shopping at the greenmarket and eating according to the seasons, as well as bringing my own containers to purchase bulk food items and takeout foods.
