- Thursday 21st July 2022
- Plastic Free July, Conservation, Wildlife
This month is Plastic Free July!
Currently on average Australian's use 3.4 million tonnes of plastic in a single year. With one million tonnes of Australia's annual plastic consumption coming from single-use plastic. Studies have found that single-use plastic is the most prevalent pollution found, taking hundreds of years to break down once in the wild.
Wondering what you can do to replace your plastic? Here are 5 ways you can stop using single-use plastic and help protect our marine life.
- REPLACE PLASTIC WATER BOTTLES
Replace your plastic water bottles with a Stainless steal water bottle instead. Stainless steel water bottles can last years, reducing your plastic consumption. Plus they can come in lots of fun colours and patterns.
- REPLACE PLASTIC CONTAINERS
Replace your plastic containers with glass containers. These can easily be washed after each use.
- REPLACE PLASTIC STRAWS
Replace your straws with an aluminium straw. Straws are one of the biggest users in single-use plastic. Aluminium straws you can take with you when you eat out, in case they don’t have an alternative to plastic straws.
- REPLACE PLASTIC TRASH BAGS
Replace your plastic rubbish bags with compostable trash bags. These are made from potato starch and have no plasticizers whatsoever.
- REPLACE PLASTIC CLING WRAP
Replace your cling wrap with beeswax food wraps. These are re-usable and can can have cute patterns and prints such as a little bumblebee.
