The Challenge

Around 8 million tonnes of plastic rubbish is going into our ocean each year, polluting the very thing that gives us life.
Our consumption has gone beyond convenience and we’re running out of resources to make more plastic, and places to put the rubbish when we’re done. The global plastic issue is at crisis point.

The Solution

Attempt to use no plastic packaging for one month. Focus on the TOP 5 Plastic Enemies: avoid plastic bottles, plastic straws, plastic bags, styrofoam takeaway boxes and takeaway coffee cups.

It takes time to change a habit, but each time you don’t use plastic you’re making a positive difference!
