The Big 4, and ways to get rid of single use plastics! When referring to single use plastics, we at ECOCEAN recognise the Big 4 contributors; bottles, straws, coffee cups and their lids, and bags. Today our tip is to help eliminate plastic bottles from your life. Studies have been done that suggest the water in bottled water is by no means a more neutral pH, nor lower in fluoride, or of better quality than good old Australian tap water. Then why the average $4 price for bottled water? The plastic! Want to help reduce your footprint? AND save yourself money in the long run! Buy a reusable metal or glass bottle and fill er' up!
A type of waste that people forget about despite spending approximately 7 hrs a day using it. E-Waste! The importance of recycling E-waste is often forgotten, but old phones and computers can carry precious finite materials, that if recycled reduce the need for mining and destruction of our beautiful planet. Look up your local E-waste recycling spot and send your old phones to Mobile Muster to help get us back to an ECOCEAN.
