Plastic Free July kicks off Saturday 1 July!
Plastic Free July is a global movement that helps millions of people be part of the solution to plastic pollution – so we can have cleaner streets, oceans, and beautiful communities.
Want to reduce your plastic waste? Here’s our top three some simple swaps you can implement to help you live plastic free!
- Reusable Produce Bags
On your next grocery shop for fruit and veges, ditch the plastic produce bags your supermarket provides and bring your own reusable produce bags. Lightweight cotton or mesh bags are a cheap and sustainable solution to living plastic free.
- Stainless Steel Coffee Cup
Did you know Australian’s throw out 2.7 million single use coffee cups every single day? That’s over 985 million cups every year.
On the way to your next coffee fix, swap a takeaway cup to a BYO stainless steel cup to reduce your input to landfill.
- Silicone Zip Lock Bags
Simply swap your plastic zip lock bags for reusable silicone zip lock bags. The silicone bags are sturdier and can be washed many times.
Our top three simple swaps are a onetime purchase that can last you many years!
