REDcycle program to temporarily pause.

REDcycle program to temporarily pause.

Like all Aussies I’m so sad to hear about the REDcycle Soft Plastic Collection Service being temporarily paused. It was the first post I read last Tuesday morning, and I felt sick and sad for the rest of the day.

After a day of processing it, like many I have come to the conclusion that it’s highlighted that recycling isn’t the answer. There is a reason it’s at the end of Reduce. Reuse. Recycle.

It’s been easy to say “I’ll buy this as I can RedCycle it”

Let’s start Reducing and Reusing first.

Here are some tips and if you have anymore I’d love to hear them!

💚 Buy loose fruit and veg, don’t use the plastic produce bags, why oh why are they still in existence anyway!

💚 Use reusable shopping bags at the supermarket, not the plastic ones, why oh why are these also still in existence!

💚 Buy at local markets and bulk food stores if you can.

💚 Do an audit of the products you are buying in soft plastics and look at alternatives. For example can you start buying your bread from your local Baker and take a reusable bread bag from Onya Life 🍞

Have you got any tips?
