Did you know that a whopping 91% of plastic isn’t being recycled! As avid lovers of all things nature and the ocean, we are passionate about making sure we do our bit to help reduce waste, especially in the form of single-use plastic.

Do you Recycle your household waste? The Australasian Recycling Label shows exactly what parts of food and product packaging are recyclable. There’s long been confusion around what people can recycle, especially if the packaging is made up of many different components. So this new labelling system (that is now printed on a lot of packaging) shows you what element of your waste you can recycle.
You may also want to consider how your products are packaged at the time of purchase too eg. buy a packet of pasta in a box as opposed to a plastic packet.
