A few weeks ago, Greenpeace sent me a mailer because I had previously made a donation. However, the envelope came with a plastic window. And Greenpeace is the organisation that I least expected to do this.
The moment you pick up this book, you can already see that Beth’s Plastic-Free is championing something unique. The book’s spine is exposed and protected only by an uncoated cardboard jacket. As the publisher’s note explains, Beth and her publisher did their best to ensure that the book was made with minimal plastic.
With this same attitude—a belief that anyone can reduce their negative impact on the planet, no matter the context—Beth talks about the many ways we can use plastic-free alternatives in our lives.
My friend and I are trying to produce as little single-use waste as possible from 6 May - 6 June. We're trying to reduce waste of any kind, whether it's paper or plastic. This distinction was important to me because many unassuming plastic products are lined with plastic, such as takeaway packaging and thermal receipt paper.
I've made a list of my current methods to reduce waste in Wellington, as well as any other methods that I can think of. Any additions are welcome!
