NEW! Find Alternatives to Single-use Plastic
Only a third of our waste plastic gets recycled, the rest goes in landfill! So we have been searching for products that are raw unwrapped or packaged in tins, glass, paper or starch-based degradable plastic.
Here are some suggested alternatives for cutting our reliance on single-use plastic.
We all lead busy lives and we have become so accustomed to the convenience of home delivery and pre-packaged goods that it is now hard to find anything that is not plastic wrapped. So, cutting back on single-use plastic is not easy. Vegetables and fruit in our supermarkets are “conveniently” wrapped in plastic which we throw straight into the bin when we get it home. Meat produce on supermarket shelves comes shrink-wrapped onto black plastic trays. Cosmetics, toiletries, household cleaners, loo roll, it is all wrapped in plastic or in a plastic container.
Check out our page to help you reduce your single-use plastic!
How green are your apps?
Find out if your favourite apps are powered by renewables or dirty energy!
Since 2010 Greenpeace has been calling on major internet companies to power their apps with renewable energy. Leaders from Facebook to Google have already committed, who will be next? The data centers that store all our videos, pictures, statuses and tweets use more energy than all the world’s planes combined.
