A Belgian federal campaign to make citizens and businesses aware of biodiversity-related issues.
I take care of myself
I only use the care products that I really need and in small quantities.
I reduce the agricultural area necessary to manufacture my cosmetics and cleaning products and I limit the overexploitation of species. In this way, I help preserve primates in tropical forests and rare plant species.
I use cosmetics whose production methods are respectful of biodiversity (labels, sustainable production, no chemicals dangerous to human health and nature).
By using EU Ecolabel products for instance, I limit the pollution of ecosystems, especially agricultural ecosystems, by chemicals. In this way, I contribute to preserving the birds in our countryside.
If possible, I use products with little packaging, such as soap bars, and larger container sizes, such as EU Ecolabel products.
I limit the pollution of rivers, seas and oceans by plastic waste. In this way, I contribute to preserving the seabirds.
I use reusable care accessories such as make-up remover discs made of washable fabric and I avoid, for example, disposable wipes.
I limit the agricultural area needed to manufacture my care accessories and, by doing so, I limit habitat destruction. In this way, I contribute to preserving the vast steppes of Uzbekistan.
I use an electric or bamboo toothbrush.
I reduce my plastic consumption. In this way, I contribute to the preservation of the northern fulmar and other seabirds.
I find lots of other ideas to preserve biodiversity and share my experience with those around me.
I visit www.1001pourlabiodiversite.be to find lots of smart tips. In this way, I participate in preserving biodiversity.
