Today is World Refill Day, a global public awareness campaign to prevent plastic pollution and help people live with less waste.
By choosing to reuse, we can save millions of pieces of plastic being used and discarded. Together we can keep our environment, oceans, cities and communities plastic-free for the future.
Here are FOUR WAYS to get involved:
- Chose to reuse – We are all aware of the effect plastic has on our environment, with many of us looking for ways to live more sustainably and to reduce single-use packaging. Only 14% of plastic packaging is collected to be recycled globally. Recycling alone is not enough. Say no to single use plastics when you can and increase your reusing and refilling behaviours. See these 10 simple things you can easily refill and reuse without breaking the bank.
- REDUCE, REUSE, REFILL AND REPEAT. - Download the free Refill app to find locations to refill and reuse on the go.
- Spread the word - Make refill and reuse the new normal and remind your friends and family to choose to reuse again by making some noise on social media.
- Tell businesses to act - Let your favourite brands know YOU want to see them do more to reduce single-use plastic by offering reusable options.
