Plastic Free July

Committed to NO PLASTIC?

As Plastic free July ends, are you committed to making a real change for the future? Even small, daily changes help, we can all contribute to change. 

Here are more easy ways to do your bit & be more environmentally conscious :

  • Have you considered DIY water filtration? One Australian company is producing a wide range of filtering options with a fantastic range of terracotta – on bench options. Find out more here We love introducing our supporters to Environmentally friendly products
  • Travel mugs, too – do you have one? The humble disposable coffee cup may look recyclable, but they are covered in plastic! Check out our friends at Pottery for the Planet to grab yourself a beautiful pottery mug. This is an easy SWITCH and SWAP to commit to.
  • Avoid straws – an obvious and easy SWITCH and SWAP we can all make. Go bamboo straw or metal straw , or don't use a straw at all. If you are searching for a bamboo or metal straw to keep and reuse, check out this great source of all things planet loving Biome 
  • Choose a sustainable beeswax sandwich wrapper for your lunch, an old-school lunch box, a mason jar, or a funky Bento box. More and more salad bars offer a metal bowl (for office workers) to use for their lunch. You just enjoy your salad, wash and return the bowl to them for your salad the next day - OR when you next buy a salad, ask … Can I use my own bowl? Or do you have a reusable stainless steel bowl? There are initiatives available, but often they are not actively promoted - you be the leader! Just ask - It is another simple SWITCH and SWAP you can commit to long term
  • Wine … wine not? I hear you say! Did you know that cork is a fantastic renewable and natural resource? So select wine with a real cork or screw top when browsing the shelves. Try asking at the counter about the cork or choose just a screw-top bottle. There is no wine snobbery in doing your bit to help the planet.
  • Simply be aware of packaging – more and more companies are embracing how detrimental plastic packaging is to our environment. Being aware of the issue will enlighten you to brands who care about reducing plastic waste – like us! In the future, more changes will come but check online for packaging details and ethical standards before making purchases when you can.
