Climate warning

If Dove won’t ditch plastic, it’s time we Ditch Dove

For many years Dove has told women and girls they care about ‘Real Beauty’ but is there any beauty in poisoning our planet with mountains of plastic waste? 🌍
Dove is responsible for releasing 6.4 billion single-use plastic sachets each year -which means 12,000 every minute- that are nearly impossible to collect and even harder to recycle.
Dove spent millions on 'Real Beauty' campaigns to convince the world that their business is a force for good, while their plastic creates toxic rivers.
It is time for Dove to take action and stop selling individual plastic packets and phase out single-use plastics. ⚠️

    I hope this post will get more attention. Dove is influential and this is exactly why we need to pressure them to change. They won't on their own.

      Totally agree. Our beauty shouldn't come at the expense of the planet.

          Dove's massive production of single-use plastic sachets contributes significantly to plastic pollution, undermining conservation efforts by contaminating ecosystems and perpetuating the cycle of plastic waste, endangering wildlife and environmental health. This is an unacceptable business model

              @annett_michuki The fact that they can do this without any consequences is proof enough that they are a big company. We need to find a way to stop this powerful corporations from taking advantage of the planet

              Dove should come up with a better packaging alternative the one that is environmentally friendly

                @elizbeth_gathigia It would barely cost them anything to make sustainable packaging, it would not impact their profits largely but their unwillingness to do this calls into question their business ethics or lack thereof.

                Their disregard for the environmental impact of their packaging is unacceptable, especially considering the vast quantities of plastic waste they generate.

                  @Dove must change its way of packaging and start to promote sustainability in their business. It is sad to be still talking about plastic pollution even after so much harm from the same.

                      True that! Is there really not an easier way to get around this problem?

                        They definitely can do a better job! It is time that the beauty/soap industry takes the plastic crisis seriously and acts on it!
