Plastic

Did you know that 79% of all plastic items produced are still in the environment? Some plastics can be very beneficial, for example when used to make fresh food last longer: the carbon impact of food going to waste is bigger than the impact of the plastic packaging. For example, a wrapped cucumber lasts 3 times as long as an unwrapped one. However, many single use plastic items can be avoided and longer lasting reusable alternatives found. This can make a real difference to reducing the amount of waste that ends up in your rubbish bin. More and more people are trying to reduce the amount of plastic they use, if you want to challenge yourself to live without plastic, why not take part in Plastic Free July?
