I can not be so shure thst all product are 100% green, but wast majority probably is. That is now very prosperitive industry field end a lot of frauds are commitet because of difference in a price. Other aspect is atractting costumers to by somrthing claiming that it is a green product.

Hi Shelley,

Good observation! It's always nice to learn about a positive company initiative. In light of this information, do you plan on using that brand more or promoting it to your social connections?

Hi Amanda, It would be practical now to step up the pressure on the companies I buy my products for greener improvements, as these products are available in my country.

Studies by educational institutions have suggested that this will work perfectly if done in the right manner.

Check statistics below and source:

When China banned 24 kinds of solid waste last September, countries such as the U.S., the United Kingdom, Australia, and Japan realized they had a big problem. Until last year, China accepted 70 percent of the world’s electronic waste—discarded computers, cell phones, printers, televisions, microwaves, smoke alarms, and other electronic equipment and parts. After China stopped accepting this e-waste out of concern for its environment, Europe and North America began shipping more of it to Southeast Asia—but now Vietnam and Thailand, whose ports have been overwhelmed, are curbing imported e-waste as well.

In 2016, the world’s population discarded 49 million tons of e-waste (equivalent to about 4,500 Eiffel Towers). It’s estimated that by 2021, that number will grow to more than 60 million tons.

Freight transport plays a very important role in logistics systems, and the logistics and transport sector aimed largely to the environmental footprint. Green Logistics is a research field that aim to evaluate and lessen the environmental impact of logistics. It understands different overlapping topics such as logistics systems for recycling, corporate environmental strategies, green supply chain management, and city logistics.
