In fact, everything is naturally natural. We started out here with one earth. And that includes everything.
Something to think over….
Everything made here comes out of the same source, our very own earth. No one ever went into space to collect a huge amount of raw material.
How come we see plastic as “not natural” after all it is made out of crude oil, what ‘s a very natural product.
Where does plastic come from?
When we are producing plastic, we are changing the substance. We change the oil into something without the knowledge to change it back.
The pro’s and cons of plastic
- It’s cheap
- Plastic is light
- Easy to clean
- It is easy to color (synthetic pigmentation)
- Plastic keeps its color
- Because it is cheap, there is a lot of plastic so you have more waste.
- The decomposition process takes a long time.
- Plastic does not rot
- Difficult to recycle
- By combustion it pollutes the air
- Can contaminate water
Plastics are very harmful for our environment. We are not able to revert the process. So the garbage pile gets higher and higher and the natural commodities are becoming less. When we combust the pile of plastic waste to reduce it, we pollute the air. When we don’t, our earth is going to suffocate in this huge amount we throw away.
Our natural environment is changing bit by bit into an unnatural habitat.
We ought to be wise and think before we buy. When I was young, mom went to the fish and chips stand with a pan. And when I bought one portion, it was served in a paper cone.
Nowadays we live here with over 7 billion people, and we all use plastics. This is becoming an enormous problem.
For this reason I have searched for natural and recycled toys.

Kubb Viking Original is from Sweden
and is a family game. Kubb is a game
for outdoors. The playing pieces are
made of high-quality rubber wood.
Rubber trees that no longer produce
rubber are normally burned. In short,
in addition to a very attractive choice
wood structure, this timber is also better
for the environment.
It’s wiser when you have the choice, to choose for natural or recycled toys. So that our grandchildren can sit on a mountain soil, instead of a pile of plastic.
