Detoxing the plastic out of the ecosystem!

With the Arizonian Prescott National Forest under a wildfire spread across 1800 acres,  the world has once again refocused the attention on the pressing and prevailing environment crisis. Environmental calamity has been going on for a while but with the repercussions of negligence unfolding almost everyday, the cry for help has never been more loud.…

With the Arizonian Prescott National Forest under a wildfire spread across 1800 acres,  the world has once again refocused the attention on the pressing and prevailing environment crisis. Environmental calamity has been going on for a while but with the repercussions of negligence unfolding almost everyday, the cry for help has never been more loud.

 

 

Our Government taking a step in the right direction has banned plastics and is trying to introduce alternatives, however the fight against plastic is not going to end so abruptly. Necessary measures have to be taken at every scale.

The fashion and beauty industry have also taken a stance on the matter. The booming $500 billion per year global personal care industry relies on plastic packaging and the fashion industry accounts for 92 million tons of waste.

Nabila salon recently pointed out some of the horrors of suffocating plastics all around us in a shoot called ‘PLASTIC SUFFOCATES:LET THAT SINK IN’. With Sadaf Kanwal as the model, Nabila has tried to address a problem through her popular platform and we hope the message does actually sink in.

In 2016, a global population of more than 7 billion people produced over 320 million tons of plastic. This is set to double by 2034. All this plastic ends up on landfills, clogged with non-biodegradable substances that are slowly choking the earth. Sometimes it seems like the city of Karachi is one big landfill.

Brain Drain It is estimated that 4 trillion plastic bags are used world-wide annually. It’s a no brainier that these bags, since non-biodegradable, clog up the drainage system and cause water logging, dirt and devastation in the roads, especially after rains. Roll up and carry a tote in your purse; say no to polythene bags.

Marine strife Every day approximately 8 million pieces of plastic pollution find their way into our oceans, which end up in the guts of marine life, a lot of which we consume. It’s suffocating our marine life, and consequently introducing an unhealthy variety of health threats to our lives.

The Last Straw Half a million straws are used in the world every day. One straw is made in 10 minutes, takes 20 minutes to use and stays on earth forever as plastic is non-biodegradable. Many restaurants in Karachi have switched to paper straws but take your future in your own hands and either carry your own metal straw or opt not to use one at all.

Ali Xeeshan also joined the force and exhibited his ‘Plastic Monster’ parade in New York. His collection reiterates how plastics are literally choking the marine life and our ecosystem in general and the carbon footprint of this menace is a permanent one to remove.

Ali Xeeshan makes a show-stopping entrance at New York Fashion Parade with a thought provoking look and ‘plastic monsters’ on the ramp signifying the detrimental effects of plastic pollution. The collection CHOKE highlights the negative effects of plastic on our ecosystem: Plastic kills 1.1 million seabird and animal every year. 90% of all birds and fish are believed to have plastic particle in their stomachs to the extent that now 700 species of marine life are facing extinction! PLASTIC LIVES FOREVER. Once you create them, they never go away. @fashionparadeofficial #NewYorkFashionParade DISCLAIMER : No Animals Were Harmed In The Making of This Collection. #saynotoplastic #fashionparade #newyork #CHOKE #alixeeshansignature #plasticpollution #lifeinplasticnotfantastic #staytuned

Fashion parade Newyork. Plastic pollution is an issue that outweighs the conveniences offered by plastics and the throw-away culture. Ali Xeeshan Theater Studio has been laboriously working for months to highlight serious consequences of plastic on the environment to bring you the collection CHOKE aiming to increase understanding of this issue to empower through fashion. The result of the prolonged usage of this detrimental material means that about 2 million plastic bags are used every minute. Single use plastic accounts for 40% of the plastic produced every year where their usage might be merely of some minutes to an hour but they may persist in the environment for hundreds of years! Not only is the general environment negatively affected by plastic but also the ecosystem is vastly threatened. It kills 1.1 million seabird and animal every year to the extent that now 700 species of marine life are facing extinction! Every time someone litters mindlessly, it’s their conscience that’s choked by ignorance. #ChokeUpWithRage Featuring @sohaialiabroofficial @fashionparadeofficial #NewYorkFashionParade #saynotoplastic #fashionparade #newyork #CHOKE #alixeeshansignature #plasticpollution #lifeinplasticnotfantastic #staytuned #sohaialiabro

With that said there are certain ways we as responsible individuals can adopt and contribute to saving the environment. If we evaluate our daily lives and eliminate the things we don’t really need.  If we switch to healthy alternatives that in turn will have a domino effect for a greater outcome, we could all benefit from the provision of a toxic free environment.
