Eco friendly & waste free hacks
Make 2018 a year to be inspired to become more Environmentally friendly with these simple Eco-Conscious tips!
Ocean plastic pollution is one of our ocean's biggest threats! Over 268,940 tonnes of litter is currently floating in our ocean, so being aware of conscious alternatives to plastic and being mindful of the waste we produce is important for the environment. All the waste we do not reuse, repurpose or recycle ends up in landfill and our oceans. Here are some simple ways to be a more conscious consumer.
BRING YOUR OWN BOTTLES, STRAWS AND CUPS
Reusable Coffee cups, bottles, and metal straws are a wonderful alternative to single-use plastics. Every day we can minimise our waste by just brining our own.

BRING YOUR OWN BAGS
MILLIONS of marine animals are negatively affected by litter in our seas every day and plastics bags are one of the worst.
Always remember to bring your own bag. Keep reusable bags in your car, handbag or even just carry your items if you can. If we each did our little bit to be more mindful, we could reduce the amount of waste we each individually create each day.
AVOID SNACK FOODS THAT COME IN PLASTIC WRAPPERS!
Always opt for fresh produce to snack on like bananas, apples, oranges, watermelon etc. Mother Nature naturally packages her fruits and vegetables with biodegradable "wrappings" that are much healthier for your body and the environment. Most snacks you purchase in wrappers come with excess sugar, salts and chemicals to enhance their flavor and which can have a negative effect on our body.
TAKE THREE FOR MOTHER NATURE
Cleaning up after yourself especially when you are visiting the outdoors is essential to help the environment and our wildlife, but "taking three for Mother Nature" is a great way help, even more! Aiming to pick up 3 pieces of litter on our beaches, in our oceans or in the environment can create a positive impact for wildlife and nature too. Imagine the positive change we could create if everyone did this? Be the change you wish to see in the world!
Our oceans are precious, so enjoy, take away memories and leave only footprints.
