What is plastic-free/plastic-free living?
Buying Plastic-free, and living within a free-from-plastics household, means you are using products that are free from disposable plastics. This can be the product itself being plastic-free, the packaging it comes in, or both. Recently the most popular plastic-free alternatives for household items are products that are made of glass or bamboo, as plastic-free substitutes
Living plastic-free doesn't mean that you never use plastics, rather that you have eradicated single-use plastics where possible. Some plastic products are reusable such as Tupperware and water bottles, which are more practical and healthier environmentally, as these don't get thrown out after one use. They replace the waste of usual single-use plastics, with their long term lifespan.
How does buying plastic-free contribute toward Veganism?
Our society revolves around single-use conveniences, such as plastics and animal-based products. Cutting out just one of these can be hard enough, let alone multiple items.
Our planet is suffering from waste overload, especially plastic. Eight million metric tons of plastic waste is thrown into the ocean every year. 40% of plastic is single-use, and only 91% of all plastics are recycled.
As a business, we are conscious of the effect plastic has on our planet. But we need you. You need to make the conscious decision to limit your plastic usage, or else companies who still use single plastic won't change because they know people will keep buying from them.
