Globally, only 14% of plastic packaging is collected for recycling, and as much as 32% of all plastic packaging does not end up within a collection system, let alone recycled, according to the Ellen MacArthur Foundation1.
Kick off 2023 by becoming planet positive and reduce plastic waste
by implementing these 5 easy habits in your daily routine:
  1. Bring your own coffee mug to work- Did you know that a lot of coffee shops will give you a discount if you bring your own mug?
  2. Carry a reusable water bottle- This is an easy way to help the environment and stay hydrated.
  3. Use bar soap instead of liquid soap- Bar soap helps eliminate single use plastics from your shower.
  4. Shop with reusable grocery bags- Leave these in your bike or car so you never forget them!
  5. Avoid plastic and choose glass, paper, silicone, or bamboo products when possible- This can be a little more expensive, but significantly helps the environment and creates less plastic waste.
