Reducing the Carbon by Making the Adjustments

Current Global temperatures directly reflect irresponsible traits in people around the world, tying with the record warmth seen in 2016. 2016 marks the most drastic change and this impact greatly by promoting strong El Niño events in the tropical Pacific. The first six months of 2020 were remarkably warm, either tied with or just a bit behind 2016, currently the record warmest year. 

In  my suggest, I personally feel it’s safer to environment bar soap better option due to factors below:- 

  1. Liquid soap requires heavy duty transport due to heavier weight compared to bar soap. The carbon footprint liquid soap is higher compared to bar soap. 
  2. Packaging for body washes and liquid soaps tend to be plastic bottles that end up in landfill or our oceans. Even if the bottle is made from recycled plastic, a thin paper wrapper or no wrapper for soap bars is better.
  3.  Many shower gels and body washes are made of petroleum-derived synthetic detergents and need emulsifying agents and stabilisers to maintain their consistency. Palm oil is linked to mass deforestation and serious violations of human rights. Look for brands that commit to sourcing palm oil sustainably.

However, carbon emission due the usage is significantly less compared to poultry, transportation and manufacturing. As an individual it is difficult to make such changes that makes a greater impact in reducing carbon footprint. But where can Malaysians shop for package-free and plastic-free items locally?
