“Small acts, when multiplied by millions of people, can transform the world.” Howard Zinn
According to the Plastic Waste Makers Index 2023, the global population used 139 million tonnes of single-use plastic in 2021, up from 133 million tonnes in 2019. That’s an increase of almost one kilogram of single-use plastic per person on the planet. In fact, scientists estimate that by 2050 there will be more plastic than fish in the world’s oceans? It’s disturbing to think about, but it encourages many people to rethink their plastic consumption.
At Carbonbit we are taking on the challenge to reduce our plastic consumption and find creative alternatives. This starts in our supply chain where we are looking to purchase goods from suppliers that don’t use plastic packaging. Not easy!
Small changes in our daily habits can make a big difference at the individual level as well. So whether it’s carrying a reusable water bottle, saying no to plastic straws, recycling, or choosing products with minimal packaging, every step counts. Let’s be mindful of the choices we make and inspire others to do the same. Together, we can create a cleaner and greener future!
If you have any tips, tricks, or success stories on living a plastic-free lifestyle, we would love to hear them. Share your wisdom and let’s support each other on this journey. Likewise, if you have suggestions for a plastic free supply chain then please share on this post.
Join Carbonbit and let’s make this Plastic-Free July a month of positive change!
