Ecology’s Plastic Free July 2020

From our products to our packaging, the Ecology team is constantly working hard to deliver on sustainability and reducing waste. That’s why we’ve decided to hop on board with the Plastic Free July movement! Plastic Free July is a global movement that helps millions of people to be part of the solution to plastic pollution in order to assure cleaner neighbourhoods, parks and oceans and waterways. For this Plastic Free July, we’re so excited to celebrate by sharing our beautiful reusable and reusable and sustainable products with you!

1. BYO Coffee Cups 
Did you know most coffee cups are not recyclable? By bringing your own to cafes and restaurants, you can make a huge difference to the number of cups that need to be produced and the amount that ends up in landfill.

2. Say NO to Plastic Shopping Bags   
Keep reusable shopping bags in handy places so you never forget, such as in the car or at the front door to reduce plastic bag usage. Please note that Ecology’s reusable shopping bags are crafted from used plastic bottles! This means that by using our bags you are minimizing the volume of waste produced.
