THE GOOD EARTH

Plastic Free Living

You may be aware that plastic is bad for the environment but do you know exactly how?

Perhaps you’re already using drink bottles that are BPA free, but did you know that BPA is in all soft plastics?

Ocean

  • The ocean may look calming and inviting, but did you know that any plastics that make it to the ocean breakdown into plastic microbeads?
  • These microbeads are ingested by plankton and in turn are eaten by fish.
  • It's even very likely that the fish you are about to eat contains plastic microbeads.
  • Let’s find out what we can use instead? 

I'm speaking with Margaret Mossakowska of www.mosshouse.com.au 

 

PLAY: Plastic Free Living 24th October 2018

Check out repair cafes, recycle stuff, don’t add to landfill. 

Margaret says, rethink what you are buying

Plastic pollution

Replace you worn out plastic containers with glass ones because cheeses, meats and any food that has more than 4% fats should be stored in glass. 

Why? because those plastic containers do contain BPA

One thirds of plastics are used for packaging such as food but you can avoid buying veggies that are wrapped in plastic, they don’t need it.

Bring your own container to get meat, fish, cheese etc.

Don’t take no for an answer, it’s not illegal.
