1000 Flowers for the Planet - #571 Switch to Wooden Eyeliner Pencils
Here’s another way to get plastic out of your life and out of landfill. If you buy a wooden eyeliner pencil instead of one encased in plastic, you avoid that pesky bit of packaging that ends up being tossed ‘away’, and we all know there is no such place as away. These small lengths of plastic are not designed to biodegrade, and even if they did they would create even more havoc to the environment as tiny, tiny pieces of plastic. The plastic casings will pollute the environment for 1,000 years. Wooden eyeliner pencils are an easy option for purchasing and are probably more financially viable as there is sometimes a lot more liner running the length of the pencil. Don’t forget to use it all the way to the end before tossing the last little but in the bin. It’s a good switch – more for your money, better for your health, better for the environment and easy to do.
