Reducing plastic waste

Plastic waste is a major global issue and is inextricably linked to our food consumption. For decades, single use plastic has been the dominant product in food packaging and shopping. Plastics are made using petrochemicals that deplete natural resources and commonly end up polluting our waterways and oceans. Whether it be remembering to take reusable bags when you shop, avoiding overly-packaged foods, or taking your own container to a bulk food store – there are many ways to participate in a plastic-free future.


Clean Up Our Waste

Australians produce 540kg of household waste per person each year. That's more than 10kg per person per week. We need to reduce both the rubbish that enters our environment and the waste we send to landfill.
