Do you think you would be able to live without throwing any trash away? Considering the amount of plastic and disposable packaging that covers almost everything we use, you would think it an impossible feat. However, you might be surprised to know that there are people all over the world that are making this seemingly impossible task a reality. By cutting out disposable packaging and making a commitment to using reusable products, more and more people are joining in the fight for a zero-waste world and are proving that we all have the ability to make a difference in improving the environment.
Mokk, our exciting collaboration for this week, is a part of that movement. Working towards the reduction of waste is at the heart of their project, and their product. By looking at the classic handkerchief of their grandparent’s generation and imagining a modern alternative, Mokk has come up with a simple, effective, and waste-free product.
They have achieved this by redesigning the pack of simple handkerchiefs, creating a strong, waterproof pack that’s made from ripstop fabric. In the pack they have added 5 organic cotton handkerchiefs, and have included a second pocket in the bag’s design so that once you have used a handkerchief you can just pop it into the separate pocket and prevent the used handkerchiefs from mixing with the clean ones. Once washed, the tissues are reusable and as good as new!
This hygienic and pleasant solution to the “use once and throw away” tissue is a fantastic way to continue making more responsible decisions when it comes to our consumption. It’s a small but impactful way to do your part in creating less waste.
