Takaterra.com : Zero waste concept store
Takaterra.com is first and foremost a zero waste online shop offering an exclusive selection of Vegan, zero waste, eco-responsible and plastic free brands, as well as a multitude of tips on how to make a smooth transition to a greener and less polluting life.
Our zero waste store is built upon three pillars :
1. We don't need a handful of people who practice plastic free completely. We need millions of people who do it partially.
2. Plastic free should be a symbol of simplicity, beauty and elegance and should not be synonymous with dullness and complexity.
3. We did not inherit the Earth from our ancestors, we merely borrow it from future generations.
Having done it ourselves, we know that there are many small changes that are easy to make without having to change your daily routine. These minimal changes play a major role in eliminating an overproduction of daily trash. Getting into a "less waste" life is not complicated and anyone can do it. Step by step, we can all find simple alternatives allowing the lessening of unnecessary waste and significantly reducing a far too large ecological footprint. The key to success is not to make sweeping changes and find yourself down a too difficult a path, only to give up. Our zero waste store is there for you to try, try again and find ecological solutions to your needs. The planet will thank us for each small step we take and the multiplication of individual actions will have a strong impact.
Reducing waste is not utopian and can be easily adopted. We have all tried to reuse an object, or to repair it so that we can profit from it again. Sorting our litter in the right bin is almost systematic and we use recycled products on a daily basis. We must seek to avoid all disposable and aim for sustainability. What we offer you through our zero waste store Takaterra.com, allows you to move forward, knowing that you are choosing the right products from ethical and responsible brands.
Takaterra.com is a concept store which, through the careful selection of its brands, offers unique, high quality and design products. Our wish is to bring together under one roof the brands that will make you want to get started in plastic free living. Not only by the beauty of their products, but also (and above all!) by their efficiency and durability. From our point of view, we can all target a greener future, while keeping the desire to have beautiful products in our possession. Our commitment is to offer you respectful brands, taking care that the manufacturing of their products has no or minimal impact on our planet. Each brand is also selected for the impeccable quality of its line.
Our profound wish is to encourage and convince as many people as possible to improve the terrifying condition of our planet and diminish waste. This is so that our children can live in a healthier world than ours. Getting started and taking action is our duty today vis-à-vis future generations. We can no longer remain sole observers of fatal climate change and dangerous human-made creations. Ecology has become a more than urgent subject and it is up to us to act, individually and collectively, to become an active player on our own scale. That's why, through our zero waste shop, we bring you only the best that will allow you to make a difference.
What is zero waste living ?
Zero waste living is an ecological approach which aims to alter our consumption to eliminate garbage and reduce our ecological impact. Plastic free and zero waste are often associated with the 5 "R" rule. This zero waste rule comes from Bea Johnson herself:
To be effective and develop a pro-environmental behavior, it takes time and some more time to rethink some of the facilities to which we have become accustomed to. Zero waste encompasses all areas of life: consumption at home and outside, the use of beauty products, the way we shop and dress, how we clean our homes and even how we cook. In short, it means relearning to live differently and our zero waste store is there to support you in this transition.
Why start with zero-waste ?
Waste is all around us and we keep producing more. Our planet and our health suffer from disposable single use products. Recycling, even if it is gaining ground, is only a small part of the solution. Only certain products are really recyclable (glass, paper and metal in particular). To only look to recycle is not sustainable is the long run, as it means producing and filling up another landfill. If we want to see the future in a sustainable way, it is essential to review the way we consume. Waste management can help for reusing products or for products to be reused but isn't a 100% eco friendly approach. The idea is to adopt the "less is more" approach: consume less and get as much, and ideally, more out of it. The key for the environment is to reduce the purchase of over-packaged products and switch to a greener life. This is what we are aiming for with the zero waste shop Takaterra.com.
There are many advantages to a zero waste and plastic free life :
- Enjoying natural products
- Saving Money
- Improving your health
- Offering our children a more sustainable future
- Diminishing plastics
- Living on a cleaner planet
How to start zero waste living ?
We strongly recommend that you go step by step and room by room to phase out single-use products gradually. To start, you can choose to start by changing the consumption in your bathroom and reducing your household garbage. Review all beauty products and their packaging. Learn about the solid beauty bars in our zero waste store to find sustainable and healthy alternatives. After finishing your actual cosmetics in plastic containers, choose the solid beauty bars you need in our ecological online store. Soap bars, shampoo bars, conditioner bars, ecological toothpaste and moisturizing balm will be a daily pleasure. Replace your plastic toothbrushes with bamboo, wood, or rechargeable toothbrushes. No longer buy a toothpaste in a tube, opt for the one in a glass jar. Once your bathroom has been transformed into a zero-waste, plastic-free bathroom, move on to the next room. Every waste reduction is an additional victory. This will impact the entire logistics chain and force industries to change their behavior. Our zero waste online store and our advice are there to support you so do not hesitate to contact us if you want to know more.
It is imperative to take care of what you have. Repairing to reuse is a vital part of zero waste. A zero waste object is an item that will have known several lives because you will have reinvented different uses for it. Knowing how to give a second life to an object is essential. Many products in discarded cardboard boxes can turn into interesting tools for creativity workshops for your children. Tired vegetables are still edible and can be used to transform them into soup, for example. The leftovers of meals will be at the end of their life in the compost. A zero waste shop is not everything, you also have to think about re-use, restate and re-create.
