Know Your Facts about Plastic
Parties & Family Gatherings
– If you’re planning on having picnics at the park or the beach, avoid buying single-use plates, cups and utensils at all costs. It’s only going to take a little bit of extra effort to bring some from home that you can wash up later.
– At said gathering, resist the urge to throw anything that’s recyclable straight in the bin – take it home, clean it, and dispose of it correctly.
– Eating out? Refuse plastic straws, stirrers and bottles if you waiter brings them to your table.
– If you’re grabbing takeaway, enquire what kind of packaging your food will be coming in. It’s up to us to encourage our favourite restaurants and cafes to make use of biodegradable containers.
