Today, nearly 30,000 species are facing extinction. Wildlife conservation has become a top priority for environmentalists and citizens around the world. It is the act of protecting animal species to prevent habitat degradation and extinction. It’s not only about ensuring the sustainability of the world’s many ecosystems, it’s all about respect. It’s about understanding that we humans are not superior to any other species and that we all deserve to live on this wonderful planet.
Protecting wildlife is essential to maintaining, and even improving our current quality. The air we breathe, the water we drink and the food that we eat all ultimately rely on biodiversity. It plays an important role in maintaining a healthy ecological balance on this earth. And we must teach the younger generations the value of wildlife conservation and biodiversity, hence empower them to take part in creating a safer planet for every animal and plant species.
Every piece of plastic or paper garbage you have ever thrown away still exists, on this planet, in our soil or our oceans. It’s all still out there, and now it is choking our oceans and killing our wildlife. It causes disastrous outcomes as well as higher CO2 emissions, so waste is a key contributor to climate change as well.
Cyclones, hurricanes, or typhoons are among the most widespread natural hazards on the planet. They can last up to ten days. This meteorological phenomenon corresponds to strong tropical storms with winds up to 380 km/h, heavy rain and intense swells. They form when warm, moist air moves over the ocean.
Ecosystems refer to the interactions between the living things (plants, animals, fungus) and other components of the environment such as soil, water, and rain. Humans are also an integral part of the ecosystems. They form part of it and depend on it for survival. Nowadays, technological progress develops at such a rapid pace that it endangers the sustainability of natural resources.
Biodegradable and compostable products are the next step forward when it comes to protecting our environment from any sort of pollution or disastrous consequences. Hence, as our mission is to reduce waste and be as close to zero-waste as possible, there are certain tips and ideas below to change our mindset from using plastic to eco-friendly products which are easy to use, comfortable, reliable and economical.

De nos jours, il existe différentes façons de faire disparaître nos déchets, et les innovations ne cessent d’évoluer. Nous avons principalement le tri et le recyclage, qui, petit à petit s’imposent dans notre quotidien. Nous avons également la technique de l’incinération qui consiste à brûler les détritus afin de réduire la masse de ces derniers et produire ensuite de l’énergie. Cependant, l’incinération reste une technique délicate pour différentes raisons, notamment la pollution de l’air pour faire fonctionner les usines. En effet, le débat sur l’incinération des ordures est toujours remis en question. Cette solution est polluante et coûteuse. Alors, est-ce que la destruction des déchets vaut tous ces “effets secondaires” ?
