If you’ve seen images of deserts full of mountains of fast-fashion throw-aways, oceans full of plastic and other bits and bobs, or beaches that are more trash than sand, then you get it.
Even trash that is neatly distributed to its allocated landfill poses soil contamination and land-use issues.
So what to do. How about refillables? How about we stop using single-use anything? (Just a suggestion!) How about ensuring that our packaging can be part of the solution instead of part of the problem.
We focus our attention on brands that are implementing practices to reduce product packaging or make packaging more recyclable, biodegradable, reusable or even compostable.
Because we all have a waste problem.
