Which ORGANIC label to choose?

Why is Hebdo Ecolo interested in the different organic labels in Europe? It's simple, you cross three countries, France, Luxembourg and Germany and you can see almost 10 different logos appearing ... Here is a simple guide to better understand and consume better in Europe! On the program in this article : Why so many ORGANIC labels? Generic labels Labels with additional requirements* Conclusion *This article will evolve and be enriched in the following weeks with labels from other countries thanks to the participation of the community. 1. Why so many organic labels? In the first article of this chapter devoted to Organic, we have detailed what was behind this so popular word. Now we put ourselves in your shoes, you, in front of three ORGANIC potatoes, but with three different labels ... But what exactly makes the difference? The organic label in Europe is framed by a strict set of specifications being the reference. We will speak here of minimum quality that does not affect the health of the environment or that of the people who consume these products. Companies, organisations and associations have created their brand / label, more demanding and thus defending a superior product quality. We explain it all to you, right now 😃 2. Generic labels The basis, the European Organic Label The reference system allowing you to identify a product that complies with the specifications of organic farming. The national public labels AB, Agriculture Biologique 📍France 🇫🇷 The conditions conditions of use of this mark are controlled by the Agence bio, a public interest group under the supervision of the Ministry of Agriculture and Food. The AB logo may be used optionally, in addition to the European logo. It is also used on productions that are not covered by the European regulation but by French specifications (for example pet food, rabbit or snail breeding products...). BIO Siegel 📍 Germany 🇩🇪 Label used for all products already certified with the European label with the exception of the following products where the logo is not affixed : Products of hunting and fishing of wild animals Cosmetics Pharmaceutical products Products from establishments undergoing conversion. Do you live or travel in Europe? And you want to maintain a healthy diet, free of chemicals and not harmful to your health, even in another country? 👍 Here is THE guide to the main private labels in France, Belgium, Germany, England ... with stricter, more local, more social requirements ... then the positive ones ! 😃 3. Labels with additional requirements Nature & Progrès 📍 France 🇫🇷 "It was Nature et Progrès that drew up the first specifications for organic production in France in 1972. It was taken over and approved in 1986 by the French government before being replaced by the European organic regulation, which is unique and common to all member states".par l’ Nature et progrès is a French brand of high quality from organic farming. 🌱 Some requirements for the EU label: Prohibited traces of GMOs Palm oil, whether or not organic, prohibited Transport time for live animals limited to 6 hours Non-contaminated product because no agriculture near roads or polluting factories ... Takes into account social parameters Nature & Progrès works transparently with us, the consumers. All the specifications (plant production, brewing, sheep, pigs...) of this brand are available online. You too can find a professional near you to buy honey, milk, jam and even cosmetic products. Bio Cohérence 📍 France 🇫🇷 "It is a French industry brand carried by producers, processors, distributors and consumers. It is a societal movement that encompasses the economic and social fields: job creation and maintenance, proximity and fairness of exchanges from the producer to the consumer. The Bio Cohérence brand carries three strong values: environmental, ethical and economic. Some requirements in relation to the EU label: Withdrawal of the brand in case of GMO contamination. Products made 100% in France Ingredients 100% France Limitation of animal transport times Direct sales and specialty stores The full specification is available online by comparing it with the European regulation. A transparency that does a lot of good! Find the directory of shops as well as producers and processors for direct sales. It's just fantastic! Demeter 📍 International 🌍 Demeter is a German brand of biodynamic agriculture, a step beyond organic farming, adding a spiritual and cosmic dimension. It encompasses farming techniques as well as rituals of a mystical nature. Some requirements for the EU label: Solar and lunar cycles (night/day rhythms, tidal phenomena,...) Nature's intelligence to accompany plants and animals towards harmonious development. Use of composts and preparations based on medicinal plants You can also find the producers (cereals, fruits, vegetables, meats...) winemakers (wine, creams, brandy, liqueur...) or processors (teas, fruit juices, vegetable juices, oils...) Demeter in your area.For example France Germany Bio Lëtzebuerg 📍 Luxembourg 🇱🇺 Bio-Lëtzebuerg was founded on 27 February 2012 in Vichten in a mixed house. The association was born from the merger of the two organic farming associations "bio-LABEL" and "Demeter" in order to combine the strengths of both associations. Its requirements are completely in line with Demeter's specifications. Biogarantie 📍 Belgique 🇧🇪 "This Belgian label, created at the end of the 80s, is the fruit of a spontaneous citizen grouping around the concept of organic farming." It is also mandatory to already have the European Bio label because the Biogarantie (website in FR and NL) requirements are higher. Some requirements compared to the EU label: A fair price for a fair wage for the whole production chain. Originate and source from local producers All unnecessary packaging is avoided, preference is given to recycled materials. Prepared and processed foods that contain more than 5% cane sugar, cocoa, coffee, banana or tea, which come from a country where social sustainability does not apply, cannot bear the Biogarantie label. In contrast to the above labels, there is less transparency as the specifications are not available online. On the biogarantie site, it is easy to access the list of all their members. BIO Suisse / Ferme Bourgeon "Organic bud. The balance between man, animal and nature." 📍 Switzerland 🇨🇭 The Bud is the brand name of almost 7'300 Swiss agricultural and horticultural companies that produce according to Bio Suisse's specifications. More than 1,050 food and commercial companies produce or market Bud foodstuffs. Some requirements for the EU label: No air transport Nesting* of rare species by providing them with habitat No use of artificial vitamins Transformation of a product without flavours and colouring agents Strict controls, no genetic manipulation, strict import regulations. Nesting : And I thought it was to create nests, well not to miss 🤣 ! This corresponds to the period when the bird incubates its eggs. The Bio Suisse site also offers services to find shops, markets and even restaurants near you and even participate in activities related to solidarity agriculture. "Bioland and Naturland are in Germany, the counterparts of the Bio Suisse label." Naturland 📍 Germany 🇩🇪 & International 🌍 "Naturland farmers and food processors have been pioneers in organic farming for 40 years in Germany and around the world. In addition to the fields of agriculture, agro-ecology and food processing, Naturland is also active in the fields of forest management, aquaculture, textile production and ecological cosmetics. Some requirements for the EU label: Longer life span of an animal, poultry, pigs, ruminants and cattle All workers, employees and their families must have access to safe drinking water, food, shelter and basic medical care. Sustainable aquaculture and fisheries with the marine environment and surrounding terrestrial ecosystems that are protected You can look at all the Naturland directives, (in Deutsh, English, Español, French, Italiano) with regard to production, aquaculture, the social aspect and their Naturland Fair label. Read the seafood brochure (English). Bioland 📍 Germany 🇩🇪 "Bioland is the leading association for organic farming in Germany. About 8,100 farmers, gardeners, beekeepers and winegrowers produce according to Bioland standards. In addition, more than 1,200 processors such as bakeries, dairies, butchers, restaurants and traders are partners of Bioland. They act as a community of shared values for the benefit of mankind and the environment". Some requirements for the EU label: The number of animals on an organic farm depends on the size of the farm's fields and pastures so that the animals can be fed with the farm's own fodder. To preserve wildlife and create habitats for insects. Do not use petroleum-based fertilizers, Avoids long transport journeys and greenhouse gases Uses renewable energy The Bioland site (in German) gives dozens of tips on recipes or even gardens. According to a study taken from the 2015 ranking of Helvetas' organic labels, Pusch, SKS, WWF, Demeter and Naturland are "highly recommended" and Bioland, "recommended". Soil Association 📍 United Kingdom 🇬🇧 (England, Scotland, Wales, Northern Ireland) Soil Association Certification is the largest organic certification body in the UK, with over 50 years experience. We certify thousands of organic farms in the UK and our friendly and experienced producer certification team has helped many innovative farmers and producers across the UK convert to organic. Some requirements for the EU label: Fighting the GMO, pesticides and antibiotics lobby Restrictions on chemical inks used on packaging The packaging is not GMO or derivatives Agriculture must not affect the reserves needed by the local and indigenous populations living in the surrounding area. Restrictions on fertilizers and natural nutrients from the sea All Soil Association standards are available online. A very appreciable transparency. This article is likely to evolve and bring more content regarding labels from neighbouring countries, such as Spain, Italy, Sweden ... Conclusion In France in particular, the lobbies are powerful. Contrary to cigarettes, diesel for example, which are highly taxed products (the polluter-pays principle), this system is not in place for agriculture. The logic is reversed with the use of chemical products that are not taxed and the label Organic has to be paid for. When you know that you swallow 4.8 Kg of chemical products per year with conventional food, buying organic products, preferably through direct sale, is therefore to support the preservation of your health, that of humanity, live animals and nature, which is so important. Just as importantly, you support farmers and producers who want to do good for you! Also, you reduce your carbon footprint, you contribute to ethical values such as fair wages, respect for the people living around you, reduction of suffering, cancer and many other fundamental issues.

What is ORGANIC ?

In this article created in collaboration with Lucie, whose titles are: Organic in a few words What changes in an organic product? What is changing for the planet? What changes for me? Some key figures Conclusion Reflection In just 4 minutes ... let's get started ! Why Hebdo Ecolo is interested and does a chapter on BIO? Three reasons! 1. Organic in a few words Biological agriculture definition by IFOAM "Organic Agriculture is a production system that sustains the health of soils, ecosystems, and people. It relies on ecological processes, biodiversity and cycles adapted to local conditions, rather than the use of inputs with adverse effects. Organic Agriculture combines tradition, innovation, and science to benefit the shared environment and promote fair relationships and good quality of life for all involved." 2. What changes in an organic product? Growth hormones and hormones to fatten animals ❌ Chemical and synthetic fertilizers ❌ GMO products ❌ Chemical colorant, additives or artificial flavors. No chemical preservatives ❌ Manual or mechanical, non-chemical weed control Compost is used as natural fertilizer 🌍 The multiannual crop rotation to preserve and increase the fertility and biological activity of the soil, ensuring consistent use of the soil's nutrient resources 🥦🍅🥕🥒 An ORGANIC fish 🐟 grows in its natural environment or in a pond. 3 times less fish than conventional farming. Battery Animal and hydroponics cultivation is prohibited. For example: no raising of caged hens 🐔 An animal must have access to the open air with sufficient space ☀ Diseases are treated immediately to avoid suffering to the animal 🤒 If an animal receives more than three treatments based on veterinary medicinal products including antibiotics over a period of one year, neither the animals concerned nor the products obtained from these animals are sold as organic products 🚨 Force-feeding of animals and fish is prohibited 🤢 3. What is changing for the planet? Conservation of healthy and fertile soil 🌱 The animal grows and lives in better conditions More space to live, better nourished, cared for and considered Agriculture respects nature and lets biodiversity, ecosystems live Food for the organic consumer requires -23% of agricultural land 🚜 -26% of energy consumed for production ⚡ -37% greenhouse gas emissions compared to the conventional consumer.

Rivers, seas 🌊 and groundwater 💧 see their quality improve and fish 🐟 less intoxicated ☠ 4. What changes for me? Exposure to synthetic pesticide residues is lower for organic consumers, between -23 and -100% - 40% exposure to chemical contaminants Risk reduction for cancer and breast cancer = living healthy Metabolism is not disturbed (no growth hormones) More taste, more vitamins and more minerals Breathe less polluted air for you, farmers, animals ... Organic creates almost twice more jobs as conventional farming 5. Key figures 🚨 Globally, almost 50% of antibiotics on the market are used for animal husbandry ... therefore indirectly ingested by humans? The country's organic agricultural area represents 22% for Austria, more than 8% for Germany and Spain, less than 7% for France and 3% for England. At the same time, Spain and France are the first consumers of pesticides in Europe on non-organic land. The Netherlands thus makes an extremely intensive use of pesticides, to compensate for a weak sunning. Grow many fruits and vegetables with phytosanitary products. This is particularly the case for tomatoes, cucumbers, peppers, grown hydroponics, in greenhouses, which make the Netherlands the second largest exporter of agricultural products in the world! Organic is € 11.9 billion in turnover in 2019 In 2019, the value of purchases of food products from organic farming increased by 1.4 billion euros, i.e. growth of + 13.5% compared to 2018 Over 6% of household food consumption is devoted to organic products. 6. Conclusion Organic farming is not perfect - besides that who is it? 😃 - but above all it is an alternative that is so much more respectful of the environment, animals and Humanity.
When we know that Biodiversity 🐞🐛🦋 (butterfly, bee, ladybug ...) has decreased by 78% and that the main factor is our agriculture with the use of pesticides and chemical fertilizers ...
How can we not think about it now that we know it?

Consuming a product from organic farming brings together a multitude of positive aspects, explained in this article. ✅

And the price? also positive! In some cases, you will have to pay more, it's true ... and by buying ORGANIC you also save lives even if they could be insignificant in your eyes, these lives are so important for the survival of our planet. 🌍 7. Reflection 🤓 And if, on a non-organic product, there would be a red label, implying: Pesticide, GMO, chemical fertilizers, soil destruction, increased risk of cancer ... would you buy it? If an organic animal cannot be sold with the label because it has undergone more than 3 antibiotic treatments over a period of one year ... then what is the quality (harmfulness?) Of the meat / fish we eat out organic label and treated daily with antibiotics? Please 🙏 share if you liked the article With the help of Lucie and written by Mathieu de Hebdo Ecolo 🌱

Synthèse du mois de juin : Save Water

Le mois de juin était riche en informations et en astuces. On vous propose une synthèse en moins de 3 minutes pour la cuisine, la salle de bain et le jardin. En ayant en tête qu'une facture d'eau par an est en moyenne 800€ pour 4 personnes. Dans notre article premier article, "Pourquoi réduire sa consommation d'eau ?" nous donnions quelques chiffres sur la consommation d'eau. Voici maintenant quelques conseils simples. Comment faire ? Dans la cuisine : Laver les fruits 🍓 et légumes 🥦 dans un seul récipient composé d'eau. Faire la vaisselle dans deux bacs différents. Un pour laver, un pour rincer. Permet de réduire la conso d'eau de 85% par rapport à une vaisselle normale. (-50L) Ou au mieux, directement dans le lave vaisselle avec un produit de lavage écologique. => C'est -30% de phosphore en moins ☠ Côté cuisson, nous avons des choses intéressantes à vous dire 😃 : Il est très facile et même bénéfique de récupérer l'eau de cuisson de notre cuisine ♨ L'eau des pâtes 🍝 : Pour constituer la base de vos plats en sauce Pour rincer les cheveux qui donne un effet brillant et soyeux Pour un petit bain tièdes de minéraux pour tes pieds. Bien-sûr sans les pâtes car ça s'emmêle autour des doigts de pieds 🦶 L'eau du riz 🍣: Une bouteille de cette eau, 2h au frigo pour une boisson fraîche et énergisante. Elle améliore aussi la digestion en cas de ballonnement Et le top du top...🥇 tu peux te rincer le visage avec ! Pour une peau plus douce et plus belle. Bon ... Si tu penses déjà être super canon, oublie ce conseil. 😉 L'eau des pommes de terre🥔 : Tiède, elle permet de désherber aussi bien tes plantes d'intérieur que l'allée de ton jardin 🌴 Froide, elle nettoie l'argenterie de mamie 👩‍🦳 L'eau des légumes 🍆 : Cette eau peut être utilisée pour arroser toutes les plantes. Riches en vitamines et nutriments, cette eau sera parfaite comme booster et engrais naturel. STOP 🚨 à l'ouverture du robinet ! Tu peux récupérer toutes les eaux de cuissons pour dégraisser et nettoyer les poêles. 👀 Combien de personnes jetteraient l'eau de cuisson directement dans l'évier ? 🤯 Bilan en chiffres pour 1 personne : 3 vaisselles éco-responsable par semaine, te font économiser 150 litres d'eau. L'eau de cuisson pâtes, riz et patates c'est 150 Litres par an. Par des méthodes simples, tu réduis de près de 8 000 litres d'eau 🌍 par an ta consommation (Ça fait tout de même 8 tonnes). Dans la salle de bain: C'est dans cette pièce où notre consommation d'eau est la plus élevée et pourtant la plus simple à réduire. La douche 🚿 : Un débit d'un douche classique c'est entre 15 à 20 litres d'eau par minute. Couper l'eau lorsque l'on se savonne pour une douche en moyenne de 10 minutes en France. C'est juste déjà 50% d'économie en passant de 158 litres d'eau 70. Se laver les dents 😁: Un robinet d'eau ouvert c'est 12 litres par minute rejetés pollués dans la nature. 2 minutes de brossage 2 fois par jour, reviendrait à gaspiller 50 Kg d'eau ... par jour ! On essaye donc de toujours fermer le robinet. 👌 Les toilettes 🚽 : Une chasse d'eau c'est 9L par utilisation pour les plus économiques Et il se dit que l'on irait 4 fois par jour.
Je bois mini 2L d'eau par jour ... et perso j'y vais déjà 2 fois par heure 🤣

Astuces : Tu peux mettre une bouteille d'eau dans les toilettes (enfin, pas là où tu fais pipi 👁👁)

Soit 46 000 litres / Kg pour une personne et 160 € par an d'économisé. Dans la jardin : Récupérer l'eau de pluie 💧 Faire du binage entre ses plantes 🌷 Poser un paillage autour de la culture de ton beau jardin🌻 (C'est classe en plus) Installer un Oyas, arrosage écologique. Des artisans locaux Français en fabriquent.
Explications : C'est quoi un Oyas ? En conclusion : Économiser l'eau c'est simple, on dit qu'il faut 21 jours pour changer une habitude.

Summary of June topic: Save Water

June was full of information and tips. We offer you a summary in less than 3 minutes for the kitchen, the bathroom and the garden. Keep in mind that a water bill per year is on average € 800 for 4 people. In our first article, "Why reduce your water consumption?" we gave some figures on water consumption. 💧 Here are some simple tips now. How to do? In the kitchen: Wash fruits 🍓 and vegetables 🥦 in a single tray of water. Do the dishes in two different trays. One to wash, one to rinse. Reduces water consumption by 85% compared to normal dishes. (-50L) Or the best is, directly in the dishwasher with an ecological washing product.

=> It's -30% less phosphorus ☠ On the cooking side, we have some interesting things to tell you 😃:
It is very easy and even beneficial to reuse the cooking water from our kitchen ♨ Pasta water 🍝: To make your sauce base for your dish To rinse the hair which gives a shiny and silky effect For your feet, a little warm bath of minerals. Of course without the legs because it gets tangled around the toes 🦶 Rice water 🍣: A bottle of this water, 2 hours in the fridge for a fresh and energizing drink. It also improves digestion in case of bloating And the best of the best ... 🥇 you can rinse your face with it! For softer and more beautiful skin.
Well ... If you already think you're super hot, forget this advice. 😉 Potato water 🥔: Warm, it allows you to weed both your indoor plants and your garden path 🌴 Cold, she cleans granny's silverware 👩‍🦳‍ Vegetable water 🍆: This water can be used to water all plants. Rich in vitamins and nutrients, this water will be perfect as a booster and natural fertilizer. STOP 🚨 to let the tap open!
You can collect all the cooking water to degrease and clean the pans.

👀 How many people would throw the cooking water directly into the sink? 🤯 Balance in figures for 1 person: 3 eco-friendly dishes per week, save you 150 liters of water. The pasta cooking water, rice and potatoes is 150 liters per year. By simple methods, you reduce your consumption by almost 8,000 liters of water 🌍 per year (It is still 8 tonnes). In the bathroom: It is in this room where our water consumption is the highest and also the easiest to reduce. The shower 🚿: A flow rate for a conventional shower is between 15 to 20 liters of water per minute. Turn off the water when soaping for an average shower of 10 minutes in Europe.
It's just already 50% savings from 158L of water 70. Brush your teeth 😁: An open water tap is 12L per minute discharged polluted in nature. 2 minutes of brushing twice a day, would be like wasting 50 kg of water ... per day! So we try to always close the tap. 👌 The toilets 🚽: A flush is 9L per use for the most economical WC
And statistics say that we would go 4 times a day. I drink mini 2L of water per day ... and I already go there 2 times an hour 🤣

Tips: You can put a bottle of water in the toilet (well, not where you pee 👁👁)
And you reduce consumption by 1.5L without seeing the difference. Don't flush the toilet at night 😴 and pee in the shower 😃 Balance in figures for 1 person:
Washing your teeth responsibly with a reasoned shower means reducing your water consumption by 17,000 and 29,000L respectively.
46,000 liters or Kg for one person and € 160 per year saved. In the garden: Collect rainwater 💧 Hoeing between plants 🌷 Put a mulch around the cultivation of your beautiful garden🌻 (It's classy moreover) Install an Oyas, ecological watering. Local European artisans make them.
Explanations: What is an Oyas? Conclusion : Saving water is simple, it is said that it takes 21 days to change a habit.
By simple gestures, you can halve this quantity very easily.

You protect the planet, save your money and even make your skin and hair more beautiful! Did you like this article 👍?

Why reduce your water consumption?

What is the point if 72% of our planet is made up of it? 1.
98% of the water available on the planet is not drinkable by humans. And only 0.7% of fresh water is available which we still need to filter and treat. In other words, a drop of water that would be available to Humanity. 2. Is it necessary to remember that without water, the Life of humanity, animals, plants ... does not exist? 3. 60 seconds is the time to heat up a pasta dish, isn't it ...? During this time, it's 5 people who die because they don't have access to water. 1 person every 12 seconds. 4. Besides that, we consume on average 150 liters of drinking water per day. (some experts speak about 250 liters per day and per person in France). So we send 5,250 glasses of water a week under our feet, in the pipes. While we drink only 53 glasses of water per week. 5. At the same time, our French pipelines lose 190,000 liters of water ... every 30 seconds. 30 seconds ! Just long enough for you to prepare a coffee. 6. But before being wasted, this water has undergone a long process of purification. Captured, sieved, disinfected, treated, stored, transported ... then lost ... but still paid by citizens. 7. In other words, only in a small country like France, we would lose daily the daily consumption of drinking water (1.5L) of each inhabitant of Latin America. America is 19 countries, 365 million inhabitants. In summary, each person on Earth, including YOU has a role to play in the consumption and protection of blue gold. Key figures to remember: 60% of the human body is composed of water / 210 glasses of water for 70Kg Frenchman uses 5,300 glasses of water per week only 53 for drinking So it's 1% for hydrating you and 99% for anything else 90% of natural risks are linked to water And finally, in 30 years, 40% of the world's population will face water shortages.

🗣 Let us ask ourselves questions about the products we are asked to buy. 💰 What are their impacts on me 👀 the environment and who benefits from this situation. 🧐 Let's keep in mind, that with the climate emergency, every euro spent is a vote for or against the future of humanity. ✔️ 📝 This article answers Hugo's question on Instagram. The subject? The ecological consequences of the current epidemic, in particular the environmental impact of single-use masks. 😷 We like to tackle subjects in which each individual can at his or her own level easily act for and not against the planet. 🌍 So we won't talk about the shortage of masks at the beginning of the epidemic, or even debate if the mask really helps against COVID ... we let the breaking news channels talking about it. In any case, the recommendation is there: we should wear a mask. But what are they made from? And above all, where do they end up? 45 million masks a day 😷 In April, the French government planned to use 45 million masks a day to cover the national needs. 🇫🇷 In one month, about 1.4 billion masks are used in France. That should be more or less the same situation in Great Britain 🇬🇧, Spain 🇪🇸 and Germany 🇩🇪 If we continue the equation, knowing that a mask weighs about 4 grams, they represent over one month, 5,580 tons of waste, that is the equivalent of one month of household waste of 117,500 inhabitants (Trèves in Germany or Watford in England). 😨 👉 Let's remember that the France or the whole United Kingdom represents only 0.9% of the world's population and the situation on our scale is already so alarming. So 4 grams per day on a global scale 🌍 ... 👇 It is through plastic that we breathe? 👉 Single-use surgical masks are made from plastic (mostly polypropylene, a hydrocarbon derivative). This plastic is the one commonly used for food packaging, especially of fatty foods. In theory, this plastic is recyclable, but in practice only 26% of plastic is recycled (in France all types of plastic combined, 2016 figures). The single-use masks used during COVID are a danger for our planet. 🌍 🚨 The UN estimates that 75% of them should end up in nature. Almost 8 out of 10 masks ... My god ! I want to scream it down the street ! 🗣 However, plastic made from polypropylene takes around 450 years to degrade, during which time toxic particles and additives needed for its manufacture are released, polluting water and soil. The hospital, champion of the single use ❗️ Single-use masks also raise the question of whether or not to opt for single use masks in hospitals (as is the case hat home). This shift in hospitals was accentuated during the mad cow crisis, as single use was considered more practical at the time. In China, fighting Covid-19 at the peak of the epidemic, hospitals in the Wuhan region saw their medical waste multiplied by six, due in particular to the millions of masks and other disposable protective equipment used. The crisis of COVID 19 and the soaring prices 💸 of masks has highlighted some problems related to single use equipments, such as our dependence on Chinese production which is shaking up the country's economy. To consider single use as cheaper than reusable is an ultra-short termist decision. 🟥 The State is not an example in this matter and as we are not sheep, let us not follow this simplistic method of "buy and throw" because it is easy 🙃 1️⃣ To buy | 2️⃣ to use | 3️⃣ to throw | 4️⃣ to burn at best or to or toxify the soil in the worst case | 5️⃣ And we start again ... Is this a sustainable way of life for humanity? 👀 Single-use means forgetting to take into account the resources wasted to produce them, the greenhouse gas emissions generated (transport) and the management and incineration of this mass-produced waste. "Disinfected equipment does the trick." Philippe Carenco, a medical officer of health, states in his interview with Alternatives Economiques : "Studies that analyze the life cycle of medical devices, from the raw materials used in their manufacture to the treatment or recycling of waste, including transport, storage, etc., show that reusable devices have a lower environmental impact than single-use." 🗣 He also claims that medical equipment disinfected and sterilized according to standards does the job very well, with some French hospitals still operating on this model. The levers for individual action? Even if solutions for recycling ♻️ masks exist, the sector has not yet been developed. The Terra Cycle company has, for example, set up collection boxes in supermarkets and companies with the aim of transforming them into garden furniture. 🪑 With or without a structured mask recycling system, our preferred choice is to produce no waste. 🛑✋ It is towards a way of life with reusable and ethical products that we guide you. @MARCO BERTORELLO / AFP Besides, if you think about it for 2 minutes, why would a single-use mask thrown on the ground be dangerous for nature and not be dangerous for us who breathe through it? 🤨 Response in a few years when the epidemic is behind us... This article is not intended to convince you to buy the beautiful handcrafted and reusable masks HEBDO ECOLO, but if you really want to do something for the planet and help us finance our actions of depollution 👉 the e-shop is here. If this article has convinced you that every mask you buy is a danger and that each individual has his own responsibility ... it is already a victory for us! All you have to do now is spread this message around you 💪 🌱 👉 Fun fact, it seems that single-use masks can be reused after leaving them in an envelope for a week. So if you still have some left at home, here are the recipe. (French) To sum up Now that we know that citizens and hospitals are the champions of disposable products, we must now act. 🏃 Otherwise, the masks will end up as the number one of oceans pollution source in the today, largely occupied by cigarette butts. In short, we often tend to think that our daily and individual decisions have little impact on the environment. This is true, since there are not 7.8 billion human beings who are physically constituted and think more or less like us. From the gourd to the mask, reusability must be a message we should spread. Sometimes not really easy to find an ethical product (so many people are lying to make money that's terrible !) Always have a look at the country origin Buy a fairtrade fabric when it is possible Although we are all brothers, try to buy a local product to reduce greenhouse gas emissions generated by the transport Thank you for the support you give to the Hebdo Ecolo association.
