The ocean is the most magnificent, abundant and diverse ecosystem on the planet. It spans across 72% of the world’s surface and accounts for 70% of the oxygen we breathe and over 97% of the planet’s water supply. Without the ocean, life on earth would not exist.
However, everyday the oceans are coming under attack from manmade and natural pollution. One of the largest factors of pollution is plastic. We are literally drowning in an ocean of plastic. Plastic makes up a huge part of our lives, nearly everything we purchase is either wrapped, made of or has components that are plastic. What happens with this plastic once we are done with it? It usually ends up in the ocean. Did you know that over 8 million tons of plastic is dumped into the ocean every year? Plastic has a devastating impact on marine life and their habitats.
Making a change to our daily lifestyles and consumer habits can have a great affect on our oceans and the environment. Spending a ludicrous amount of money on cleaning products does not only affect our bank balance, it is also extremely damaging to our environment, if the plastic bottles are not recycled properly.
However, Essential Oxygen is changing the way we clean by creating a BPA-free 32 oz. bottle of Food Grade Hydrogen Peroxide meant to reduce plastic waste and toxic chemical use. Unlike other ‘brown bottle’ hydrogen peroxide retailers, Essential Oxygen prides themselves on creating Food Grade Hydrogen Peroxide that contains no toxic heavy metal stabilizers. This makes it the perfect item to replace all of the plastic bottles of other cleaning chemicals you have, and only ever need to buy one, big, eco-economical product for all your cleaning needs. The 32 oz. size is designed to refill your smaller container(s), reducing your environmental impact and reducing plastic waste.
