Year of the eco{PIG}gy

Kung hei fat choy! Another round of New Years blessings to you all. Indeed, today marks a new beginning in the 12-year cycle of the Chinese Zodiac and fortuitously, 2019 is considered the “Year of the Pig.” Or, as we’d like to officially rename it, “Year of the eco{PIG}gy.”

Join us for #plasticfreejuly

Plastic bottles, bags, to-go containers, and many other products designed for one time use last forever. These plastics break “up” instead of down, becoming a permanent pollutant. With a shockingly low rate of recycling (only 9%!), most are sent to a landfill where they remain, while more is littered, and even more end up in the ocean. Scientists predict that by 2050, there will be more plastic in our oceans than fish. Every bit of plastic ever made still exists, and in the first 10 years of this, the 21st century, produced more plastic than the entirety of the 20th century.

 

Join the #plasticfreeJULY initiative, help us reduce our collective eco-footprint, and save the ocean!

 


Ecopacifier FAQ

Are Ecopacifiers made from sustainable material?

Here at Ecopiggy, we are committed to sustainability. Our Pacifiers are made of 100% pure rubber from the rubber tree, Hevea Brasillensi. These trees are sustainably grown in Malaysia. After about 20-25 years, the tree stops producing latex sap. When that happens, the trees are harvested and re-planted. The harvested wood is used extensively in furniture, flooring construction, and toys. From seed to tree to ecopacifier to wooden toys, the Hevea Brasillensi has an eco-friendly, sustainable, and high quality life
