At Wearth, we champion every small step to help reduce our impact on the planet. This July, the plastic-free initiative helps inspire people to get involved and reduce their plastic footprint. This global movement helps millions of people across the planet clean up their plastic act.
Annually we produce around 400 million tonnes of plastic waste. This waste gets lost to the environment or dumped or burned in landfills, polluting the surrounding environment and eco-systems that live within. From local river banks to the deepest depths of the Arctic sea, plastic waste is clogging up our planet. It’s estimated between 75 to 199 million tonnes of plastic waste are found in the oceans.
These shocking facts mean it has never been more important to take a stand and reduce our plastic waste. Luckily for us, brands with a conscience are emerging and are going plastic-free. Shopping for products that are kind to the planet has never been easier. Supporting these independent brands is a great way to kick-start your plastic-free journey and help champion local businesses and the community.
