Plastic pollution in our ocean
When it comes to ocean pollution, there are more than 8 million tons of plastic being dumped into the ocean every year. Surprisingly, Malaysia has been ranked highest among the six countries (Malaysia, Thailand, Philippines, Vietnam, Indonesia, and China). The rank has been analyzed in terms of annual per-capita plastic packaging consumption, at about 16.8 kg per person. It is focused on household consumption of plastic packaging usage, where the plastic used is most likely to end up in the ocean.
Although Malaysia is ranked the highest waste collection rate amongst these six countries, it still creates the need for improvement in waste segregation. This is an ongoing effort that needs continuous support and practice from consumers, as well as brands. With that, Love Beauty and Planet encourages consumers to continue playing their part in saving the environment through the #smallactsoflove campaign.
The #smallactsoflove movement
Not only does the brand encourage the act of being kind to the earth, but it also caters to the beauty needs of its consumers. The bottles feature an absolute vibrant packaging and most importantly, it is all made from 100% Post-Consumer Recycled (PCR) plastic and are recyclable (except for its cap which the brand is committed to change by 2021).
Hence why these bottles are never a 100% see-through, making each piece of their packaging truly unique.
To inspire small acts of love that make you and the planet cleaner, greener, and more beautiful, Love Beauty and Planet’s Clean Oceans Edition is available for purchase exclusively at Watsons.
For every two bottles purchased of the new Love Beauty and Planet Clean Oceans Edition, consumers can redeem an eco-friendly stainless steel flask.
