My Little Plastic Footprint is an app that helps you scale back your plastic footprint by happening a plastic food plan. Reduce your plastic consumption and choose sustainable alternatives with My Little Plastic Footprint app.

How does it work?

It’s quite simple: select a number of of these six areas of your life – rest room, kitchen, travel, leisure, family, and backyard – and start your plastic food plan at present. To calculate your plastic footprint, we've created the Plastic Mass Index (PMI). The PMI is a measure to calculate your contribution to plastic pollution. The nearer your PMI is to zero, the much less you contribute; the nearer your PMI will get to 100, the more you contribute. By occurring a plastic food regimen, you will cut back your PMI.

Why is it important?

We all consume too much plastic. Literally. There is plastic in the meals we eat, the water we drink and even in the air we breathe. Unfortunately, what most individuals don’t understand is that plastic could make us sick when it enters our physique. The chemical compounds in plastic and plastic particles may cause most cancers, coronary heart illness, Alzheimer’s, dementia, Parkinson’s, arthritis, impotency and even harm babies within the womb.

As people, we create lots of plastic waste. More than 80% of the plastic air pollution within the oceans comes from land. And of all of the plastic we use every day, we throw 50% away inside 20 minutes. Plastic within the surroundings does not biodegrade, it fragmentizes into smaller pieces, referred to as microplastics. Today, our oceans resemble a world soup of microplastics: the plastic soup. We are all responsible for this; shoppers, companies, and governments.

To scale back our plastic footprint, all of us have to go on a plastic diet. With the updated My Little Plastic Footprint app, we will assist you to reduce the amount of plastic you use, advise you to choose the right options, and thereby forestall you from getting sick from the various toxic chemical compounds added to plastics. The diet revolves round tackling the considerations about plastic affecting human health, avoiding leakage of plastic into the setting and aiming for an absolute reduction of plastic manufacturing.
