You don’t need to travel halfway around the world to make a difference. Change begins at home. It starts with our daily decisions on how we live our lives, the products we choose to purchase, and the ways we consume. Our refuse single-use plastic campaign is meant to raise awareness on the effects that single-use plastic has on the environment and provide a few changes that you can make to be a part of the solution.
Single-use plastic is everywhere – from drink bottles and cups to food packaging of even the healthiest snacks. Plastic packaging is an epidemic. Here are a few simple actions you can take to remove single-use plastics from your everyday activities.
