Takaterra.com : Plastic free concept store
Takaterra.com is first and foremost an online store offering an exclusive selection of Vegan, zero waste and plastic free responsible brands, as well as a multitude of tips on how to make a smooth transition to a greener and less polluting life.
Our company 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 waste. 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 embark on radical changes and find yourself on a path too difficult to ultimately give up. We are here to try, try again and adopt solutions to our needs. The planet will thank us for each small step we take and the multiplication of individual gestures will have a strong impact.
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. 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 solely observers of fatal climate change and dangerous creations by humans. Ecology has become a more than urgent subject and it is up to us to act, individually and collectively, to become an active actor on its own scale.
What is plastic free living ?
Plastic free living is an ecological approach which aims to alter our consumption to eliminate waste and reduce our ecological impact. Plastic free and zero waste are often associated with the 5 "R" rule. This rule comes from English and translates as: Refuse, Reduce, Reuse, Recycle, and Compost. To be effective, it takes time and to rethink some of the facilities that we are used to. Plastic free encompasses all areas of life: consumption at home and abroad, the use of cosmetics, the way we shop and dress, we clean our homes, we cook. In short, it's relearning to live differently.
Why start a plastic free life?
Waste is all around us and we keep producing more. Our planet and our health are suffering and it is necessary to turn our back on it. Recycling, even if it is gaining ground, is only a small part of the solution. If we want to see the future in a sustainable way, it is essential to review our consumption pattern. The idea is to adopt the "less is more" approach: consume less and get as much, see, more benefits. Reducing the purchase of overpackaged products and moving to a greener life, while opting for natural products whose production is not harmful to our environment is key.
There are many advantages: Enjoying natural products, saving money, improving your health, offering our children a better future, reducing the production of plastic, living on a cleaner planet and many more that you would discover for yourself too.
How to start plastic free living?
We strongly advise you to get started step by step. To start, you can choose for example in your bathroom. Review all the cosmetics and their packaging that you have. Learn about solid cosmetics, equivalent to what you use. After completing your conventional cosmetics, choose and procure bar cosmetics such as bar soaps, bar shampoos, balms. Replace your plastic toothbrushes with bamboo ones. No longer buy toothpaste in a tube, opt for one in a glass jar. Once your bathroom has been transformed into a plastic free bathroom, move on to the kitchen. Each less waste is an additional victory. This will impact the entire supply chain and force industries to change behaviors as well. Our shop and our advice are there to aid you.
