There is nothing better than finding something ordinary that you wouldn’t have even thought of as BAD for the environment but someone somewhere has come up with a solution to make that product more sustainable.
Enter the Everyday Good Co with their Biodegradable Bandages. Yes, most bandaids are made of plastic, the sort of plastic that could be part of the 13,000 pieces of plastic litter floating on every square kilometre of the oceans surface, the sort of plastic that sits in the gut of approximately 98% of all sea birds, the sort of plastic that you have to fish out of the skimmer box after your friends kids have been enjoying your pool this Summer. However THESE bandages are made from 15% recycled materials and break down in 2 years, decomposing in 4. The packaging is made from 100% recycled material also!
Even better still is that the Everyday Good Co devotes 50% of it’s profits on the sale of these bandages to The Hunger Project whose mission is “To end hunger and poverty by pioneering sustainable, grassroots, women-centered strategies and advocating for their widespread adoption in countries throughout the world.”
Sensitive skinned people can rejoice in these sensitive skin adhesive bandages. The glue is made just for you, and the whole range of biodegradable bandages are latex free to minimise allergens even further.
So when the neighbour’s kids stack their bikes at my front gate and come in with their skinned knees looking for a bandaid I’m going to send them home plastered with Emoji Biodegradable Bandages from now on.
