Plastic Plague

Plastic Plague

I'm hoping to reduce my carbon footprint from the resources used in producing plastic and the amount of waste ending in landfill & natural habitats. I will do this by attempting to be more conscientious of the products i'm purchasing and their packaging. I also hope to increase the awareness of the Redcycle program and try and persuade 5 of my friends to use reusable coffee cups. Recently I have been involved with my local State member of Parliament in order to discuss a state wide ban of single use plastics from stores. This involved copious research into the topic. To track my Sustainable Development Goal, I'll record each item of non-reusable plastic that I purchase or use for 3 months and make a list of the people I can get to commit to reusable cups.
