The plastic problem
Only 9% of plastic is recycled worldwide and we produce more than 300 million tonnes of plastic waste yearly. Each year, 8 million tonnes of plastic ends up in the ocean. That’s 1440 dump trucks, EVERY DAY.
Plastic bottles will take hundreds and hundreds of years to start to degrade. The most conservative estimates predict it will break up (not down) after 400 years into something that’s arguably even worse, Microplastics, tiny fragments of plastic and they’re all over the place, especially in our oceans and almost all kinds of fish have been found to contain traces of them.
It is essential that we eliminate single-use plastic and one of the easiest way is to switch to solid bars in plastic-free packaging.
99% of our products are Plastic-free, laminate-free, chlorines-free. Our packaging goes to the very heart of what Natura Siciliana stands for.
All the orders placed from Naturasiciliana.com are shipped plastic-free, in a cardboard box, with paper ‘bubble wrap’, sealed with paper tape.
