A-Z ALTERNATIVES FOR PLASTIC FREE LIVING

Updated: Jul 28, 2021





JOIN THE CHALLENGE AND ‘CHOOSE TO REFUSE SINGLE-USE PLASTIC DURING JULY.


Imagine a world without plastic waste. That’s our mission to build a global movement that dramatically reduces plastic use and improves recycling, worldwide. 


The plastic bottles, bags, and takeaway containers that we use just for a few minutes use a material that is designed to last forever.

These plastics:

  • break up, not break down – becoming permanent pollution

  • have low rates of recycling (only 9% of all plastics ever made have been recycled) and are mostly downcycled (made into low-grade product for just one more use) or sent to landfill

  • ‘escape’ from bins, trucks, events, etc. to become ‘accidental litter’

  • end up in waterways and the ocean – where scientists predict there will be more tonnes of plastic than tonnes of fish by 2050

  • transfer to the food chain – carrying pollutants with them

  • increase our eco-footprint – plastic manufacturing consumes 6% of the world’s fossil fuels

Every bit of plastic ever made still exists and in the first 10 years of this century the world economy produced more plastic than the entire 1900's!
