Trying to cut plastic out of your life? Big corporations like Woolworths and Coles are undermining your efforts by wrapping fresh fruit and veggies in throwaway, single-use plastic. Globally, 90% of all plastic produced won’t end up in the recycling bin. The 10% of plastic that does get recycled often isn’t even recycled here - we send it overseas to be recycled in countries like China. Out of sight, out of mind, right? But now China has literally had enough of our crap and has stopped taking some types of plastics from Australia, meaning we’re dealing with a recycling crisis.
It's time to end single-use plastic pollution at the source. Tell Woolworths and Coles to #breakfreefromplastic by ending excessive plastic packaging in their produce aisles.
