Throw out the Throw-away Culture!

The throwaway culture means an increasing expansion of the carbon footprint. Unfortunately, even the cultural sector has fallen into the trap of becoming part of a throw-away society. It is important for the cultural sector to make the decision not to buy based solely on simplicity. We should be making an effort to buy products that will last. Research before purchasing a new product. Oftentimes, the cheapest option is not always the best option and repeated buying will cost more money in the long run.
While gloves are a necessity for cultural heritage practitioners, the majority of nitrile and latex gloves we throw away typically end up in landfills, incinerated, or worse- as pollutants in our environment!
The switch to living sustainably may seem intimidating. However, starting out with small steps will make the transition to a zero-waste lifestyle seem easier. Ultimately, being mindful of what you are consuming and why you are consuming it will help to change the “throw-away” culture that American companies have created.
