The myth of single use
The single use is the choice of ease, no constraint is felt. We also think about saving time, in a world where people are more and more in a hurry.
The use of single-use objects has become commonplace in our societies. By looking at it more closely, isn't it an aberration to use an element a few hours, a few seconds before being relayed in the waste box?
SPOILER ALERT, the life cycle of a piece of waste does not end when you no longer have it in your field of vision.
The idea here is to get rid of this sacralization. Single use should not be automatic!
Reusing objects avoids exploiting new resources to initiate a creative process.
Using reusable objects reduces your waste at home and limits your environmental impact. Ok, but how?
List all the single-use objects in his environment to differentiate useful things from superfluous things. In other words, do I have to find a reusable alternative to all disposables or some end up not useful to me?
