Link between plastic pollution and COSMETICS
Have we ever thought that the products that we use in our daily life can lead us to cancer? Products like Toothpaste, Deodorants, Shampoos, etc. And more than that… have we ever thought that the nice looking Baby Shampoo, Baby Cream, Baby Feeding bottles can have chemicals that can lead to cancer.
In today’s world we often here words like Global Warming, Climate Change, Eco-friendly living, etc. etc. Do these words have any relation with us or the common man? Yes! it definitely has. Well after listening to the various speeches on the net, I am in fact in a state of shock. But here my intention of showcasing this information, is not to scare you all. Instead it is to spread the awareness about how we can tackle this issue and bring in a practice of healthy living, starting from our homes.
In this video, Stacy Malkan – the leader of the ‘Campaign for Safe Cosmetics’, speaks about the connection between plastic pollution and cosmetics. Listen to it carefully and share you thoughts with me.
