To celebrate this we wanted to help you to understand more about plastic pollution and to offer some solutions you might like to try this month to use less plastic in your everyday lives.

♻️ 🌎 

Plastic pollution has become one of the most pressing environmental issues

Although many plastics offer that quick convenience people seek, it also leads to a throw-away culture that reveals the materials harmful side.

Single-use plastics account for a massive 40% of the plastic produced every year. 😲

Many of these products, such as plastic bags and food wrappers, have a lifespan of mere minutes to hours, yet they may persist in the environment for hundreds of years. 

Plastics can cause huge harm to our wildlife and environment 😢

❎ Animals have been caught up in plastics, causing serious, life-threatening injuries
❎ Plastics in the ocean can be ingested  and kill thousands of marine life a year
❎ Plastics break down into microplastics which can stay in the air, water systems and can even enter the food chain


There is good news

There are some truly amazing, easy to use, alternatives that you can implement into your everyday lives that will help cut the use of single-use plastic and will make a positive difference

👇 👇 👇

Throughout the month of July, all orders placed over £20 will receive a FREE reusable jute bag, to help you make one small change to make a bigger difference

Just for you……

Are there any alternatives here you will use from now on?
