When it comes to tackling plastic pollution, where do we start?
In Australia, companies starting to reduce plastic waste through the banning of single-use plastic bags, although the problem doesn’t finish there. While everyone is caught up in the single-use plastic bag hysteria, plastic can still be littered through single-use packaging.
Earlier this year, Dutch chain Ekoplaza took matters into their own hands and introduced the world’s first ‘plastic-free’ aisle. This is a step in the right direction tackling plastic waste from multiple avenues in order to educate consumers, appeal to green smart consumers and to achieve true environmental sustainability.
Now we just need to implement this strategic thinking in Australia and around the globe.
