Small swap, big impact
Thinking about our environmental impact can be overwhelming and daunting. But even the smallest acts can have a massive impact. We’ve pulled together a list of easy swaps you can follow to minimise your impact on our beautiful planet.
Ditch petroleum-based plastic wrap for Great Wrap
An effortless swap to fulfil your food wrap needs without using petroleum-based plastic. Great Wrap is 100% home-compostable and a great sustainable wrapping for food. Some cling wrap alternatives, such as beeswax food wrap, still end up in landfill, creating long-term waste problems.
Try plant-based meals or Meatless Mondays
Cooking a plant-based meal or opting for a vegetarian option while eating out is an easy and effective way to reduce your carbon footprint. It’s also a great way to test out some new cooking skills and techniques.
Invest in reusable products
One of the simplest swaps you can do is invest in a reusable coffee cup and water bottle. Some responsible cafes will even give you a discount for bringing them in.
Shop at your local bulk store
Ditch plastic food packaging and buy from bulk shops or your local health store. Use your reusable produce bags to ensure your produce stays fresh and crisp and harmful plastics out of the bin.
Shop at op shops
These days it is easy to be both fashionable and sustainable! The fashion industry is the second most polluting industry in the world, with 85% of purchased clothing ending up in landfill. Shopping second-hand is environmentally friendly, cost-effective and fun.
If more of us commit to making small yet effective choices to positively impact the health of our planet — we can collectively create a better future for ourselves and the rest of the world.
