Plastic has been a double-edged sword of our planet. Plastic is cheap, durable, and very easy to produce. However, it has also been the cause of Earth’s countless environmental problems. Estimates suggest that around 50% of plastic is just used once and thrown away. Unless we take actions, our planet isn’t getting any better.
If you’re a cat-lover who wants to lend a helping hand, one of the simplest ways is to promote eco-friendly products for you and your cat. Instead of buying the usual rubber ducks, replacing them with eco-friendly and organic cat toys would be a start.
