Do Something!


Each one of us can make a difference, together we make change” – Barbara Mihulski

Each Honeywrap saves 75 metres of plastic wrap from going into landfill and our oceans every year.

So what is so bad about plastic?

  • There is so much of it. Plastics are cheap, versatile and used for everything, then often thrown out after 20 minutes of use!
  • Millions of seabirds and marine creatures die as a direct result of either ingesting plastic or getting entangled in it.

  • Plastic doesn’t biodegrade. When it finally breaks down it is actually breaking ‘up’ into millions of tiny particles. Harmful chemicals then leach into the ground and waterways.

  • Toxic chemicals used in plastic are having a harmful effect on our health. Common chemicals found in plastics have been linked to birth defects, child development disorders and cancers.

  • Plastics are not sustainable. They are made from non-renewable natural resources such as crude oil, gas and coal.

  • 32% of the plastic we use ends up in our natural environment.

  • New Zealanders alone use over 1 billion plastic bags per year. On average, each one is only used for 15 minutes

  • 268,940 tons of plastic is already estimated to be in our oceans. Noone wants to swim in an ocean of plastic!

 

10 Ways to Reduce Your Plastic Use Right Now

  1. Buy a good quality reusable drink bottle

  2. Bring a reusable bag everywhere you go, stay organised by keeping bags with you at all times.

  3. Say no to plastic straws or use a reusable straw. Apart from being super cool, glass, metal and bamboo straws save an outrageous amount of plastic from entering the ocean. The trick is to again, always be prepared and carry your reusable straw with you.

  4. Invest in an awesome looking keep cup; they are much nicer to drink from than plastic cups and cafes will often give you a discount for using your own cup. Or you could sit down in a café and enjoying your coffee with a magazine in hand.

  5. Eliminate plastic wrap from your life!   Honeywraps are without a doubt my go-to for wrapping lunch and snacks on the go. Great for any leftovers in the fridge too.

  6. Produce bags. These are netted bags to put your fruit and veggies in to avoid the pointless plastic produce bags at supermarkets. Keep them inside your reusable shopping bags and you are less likely to forget them!

  7. Choose cardboard and paper packaging over plastic, if shopping online, email the business and ask for no plastic packaging with your order.

  8. Avoid beauty products with microbeads. Microbeads are often found in face and body 'scrubs' and are tiny plastic beads that get washed down the drain and into the ocean. Choose natural skin exfoliators like sugar, coffee, pumice or sand! 

  9. Stop using plastic cutlery. 
  10. Avoid excess packaging.   Choose the option with less or no plastic packaging.
