Plastic Free July: reusable revolution

Plastic Free July

In the era of environmental education, consumers demand plastic-free products and sustainable production. The progression to future-friendly alternatives resonates beyond consumer sentiment as Australian states implement processes to phase out problematic single-use plastics in the next five years.

Varying on the state, the bans will include straws, cutlery, food and drink containers and plastic-stemmed cotton buds. Opt for reusables from RetroKitchen, Ever Eco, Go Bamboo and Little Mashies. Plus, our picks below.

'Trend' is an understatement for the seismic shift from disposable to reusable; 88% of Australians have reduced their environmental impact, and 77% consider sustainability in purchase decisions. Further, the eco expectation for businesses is unanimous for 73% of 2000 Australians surveyed.
