Plastics revolutionised healthcare, made space travel possible, lightened cars and jets (saving fuel and pollution), saved lives with helmets, incubators, equipment for clean drinking water - the list is endless. However, a darker side of plastics has revealed itself in the form of Plastic Pollution, which has become one of the most pressing global environmental issues today.
More than 99% of all plastics are produced from chemicals derived from harmful, non-renewable sources (oil, natural gas & coal), and over half of it is designed to be used only once. Many plastic products such as bags and food wrappers have a lifespan of mere minutes to hours, yet they may persist in the environment for hundreds of years.
Plastic Free July® is a global movement that helps millions of people be part of the solution to plastic pollution. As a socially and environmentally responsible business whose mission is to guide others on the same path, we are proud to promote this noteworthy cause.
