DO NOT PUT YOUR POLYURETHANE FACIAL PRODUCTS (sponge blenders) IN DISHWASHING DETERGENT AND THEN MICROWAVE IT. FFS, what is wrong with people?
First off, if you wouldn’t put it near your face, don’t put it near your makeup tools. Secondly, MICROWAVING PLASTICS CAN RELEASE TOXINS. Don’t let this be the beauty community’s tide pod.
An ironic outcome of consumerism, is it makes YOU, the consumer, all powerful. The way we use money has more influence in our society than ANYTHING else. And the way we choose to spend that money can change everything.
No company will continue a practice or product that you the consumer will not buy. It's vitally important that you understand that, because this gives you the ultimate power to change the world you live in. Companies are extremely sensitive about you buying their products because if you don't buy their stuff they go out of business. It's not something any company is willing to consider. And buy choosing to spend your money wisely you can promote those companies that do business in a socially responsible way.
Without saying a word you will have sent a clear message that they simply cannot ignore. It will be heard, heeded and acted upon. Guaranteed.
Can you count how much plastic is in this photo ? It's even worse in France, i think. You use the product for less than 15 minutes but the plastic is eternal. This is how we have evolved, into consumers who don't think twice about all the garbage we are producing every day :s #plasticsoup#consumerism#ecology#disposablesociety
Q: What does dog food, liniment oil, butter and brake fluid have to do with Native American culture? A: Not much. The important new Americans exhibition @smithsoniannmai highlights how American Indians have been part of the nation’s identity since before the country began, and surrounds visitors with the pervasive, powerful, at times demeaning, products, images, names, and stories non-Native American have used in history, consumer culture and popular entertainment. #NDNSEverywhere#Portraits#nativeamerican#popculture#consumerculture#consumerism#historyinpictures#Americans @smithsonian
