Plastic is ruining our beatutiful Earth. Its ending up in our oceans, killing sealife. It doesn’t biodegrade. It isnt safe for our future.
So thats why we’re creating a campaign called ‘Stop being Spastic and Reduce your Plastic’. This campaign will help raise awareness about plastic and we will be creating products that are earth-friendly and make sure you end up plastic free.
Here are some few tips to being plastic free:
Use jars! How many of us buy our food in jars that we often throw out? Storing your jars and using them for things such as drinking cups, food storage, pot plant holders and many more creative ideas to reduce your plastic.
Shop at local organic farmers markets. Most of your fruit sellers or farmers markets have their produce in a basket waiting for you to pick some. Most people are lazy and use the plastic bags that are provided there. But there is so many options to reduce your plastic when you shop! Bring a weaved basket to carry with you, bring some jars you can store the fruit in, say no to plastic bags that sellers offer and tell everyone what your mission is!
Learning what you don’t need. Dont get sucked into buying junk that you dont need. Have a list and stick to that, refraining from as much plastic as you can.
Woolworths plastic bins. I’ve recently seen that Woolworths have got a bin that customers can put certain plastic into and they re-use it. It still foesnt reduce plastic. But they are reusing it, which is a step.
Homemade food. Lets face it. Pretty much 80% of the supermarket is packaged items. So how do we say no? Learning to make them at home is simple and fun! Ideas to replicate are: any bread or wraps, jams, juices, spreads, dips, cakes and more! Get creative! I do know that some people do not have time, but all the time we waste on social media, unwanted eating habits, sleeping in and so forth, we can use all that spare time to be productive, healthy and creative!
