Your future is plastic free

Choose plastic-free. And no, just recycling is not enough. Plastic made from oil can be recycled but it doesn’t grow back. We can’t completely remove plastic but we can reduce the amount of it. You can too, if you choose renewable materials. Here are some examples where you can make a difference.

Choose a renewable cup

Most take-away coffees come in a cup made from carton board. They are renewable, recyclable, and can also be biodegradable. Next time you buy a coffee to go, ask if you can also get a non-plastic lid. The renewable fibre-based lid will soon be all around, hopefully even in a coffee shop near you.
