Plastic is officially a world-wide environmental disaster.
In Australia alone, we have produced more plastic in the last 10 years than we did in the whole last century. We use over 9.7 billion single-use plastic bags annually and over one trillion world-wide. Over 100,000 marine mammals and 1 million seabirds die every year all over the world from ingestion or entanglement in plastic litter. Adapting and finding ways to reduce the plastic in our everyday lives is more vital than ever before. We’ve found some fast, affordable and effortless ways to reduce the plastic in your life as soon as possible.
