Say GoodBye to Plastic!

Countries across the globe have waved good bye to plastic!

Botswana, South Africa, Bangladesh, China & Hawaii are only a handful of counties that have banned plastic items, established taxes or recycling programs to knuckle down on the importance to reduce plastic waste.

Banner5KiwiSo to do your part and make conscious choices, we’ve put together a few easy tips and tricks to reduce your plastic use at home or in the office.

Purchase Reusable Items: Each year, around 2.5 billion coffee cups are thrown away. Consider purchasing a reusable coffee cup or water bottle to avoid paper and plastic waste.  Cafe’s tend to offer a slight discount to customers using reusable cups to make a difference too!

Take your Tote bag! : Grab an affordable and trendy cotton reusable tote bag when you’re off to do the grocery shopping. 1 million plastic bags are used every minute and 1 plastic bag, can take 1000 years to degrade. The less plastic we use and waste, the better.

Buy in Bulk: Buying in Bulk minimizes unnecessary packaging and single use plastic.

Walk away without Disposable Cutlery: It’s easy to pick up or take cutlery when it’s handed to you. Don’t be afraid to politely refuse or ask if biodegradable cutlery is available.

Ditch the straw: The straw you’ve used once you’ve finished your drink is disposed of immediately and is on its way to the landfill. Its waste we can do without!

Plastic waste pollutes our beaches, waterways and are harmful for our wild life – Animals are choking or getting tangled in plastic that leads to them suffocating or dying. Plus plastic is now entering our food chain. The smallest of items like a plastic fork or straw can be deadly so everything counts.

Let’s reduce our waste together, Join the movement and say NO to plastic!
