Throw away culture

Join us as we unwrap the facts on our throwaway culture

We live in a world where nearly everything is seen as replaceable or disposable. When we talk about throwaway culture, we’re talking about an economy strongly influenced by consumerism. One that features overconsumption and a preference for short-lived products, rather than creating durable goods.

Throwaway culture is draining the world’s resources, as well as our pockets. Our short-termism is also harming our environment, polluting our oceans and our wildlife. And that’s exactly why we are running an exciting campaign over the next two months.

This week sees the launch of #ThrowawayCultureUnwrapped. We will be unravelling the truth behind our obsession with disposable products and spotlighting the latest innovations that are combatting this problem.

We will be posting blogs, facts, tips and insightful articles on the subject. A single-use packaging seminar will highlight plastic problems in the workplace and we will be posting a handy guide to help your workplace quit its plastic fix. We’ll also be announcing an exciting new charity partnership for 2018.

Finally, to end our campaign we will be running a competition rewarding the ultimate zero waste champ with a hamper of goodies, so keep your eyes peeled and best of all, get involved!
