4 Ways to go plastic-free in honour of Plastic-Free July

  • Avoid using single use take away cups when eating out.
  • Steer clear of plastic packaged fruits and veggies from your produce department - use reusable produce bags instead.

  • Buy less plastic - choose items with the least amount of packaging, switch to paper packaging from plastic, or choose loose products with no packaging at all.
