At MG Surfline we are committed to protecting our Oceans and invite you to do the same.
Here are 5 simple ways to reduce plastic waste:
1. REFUSE single use plastic:
Say no to plastic bags, water bottles, straws, disposable utensils and cups.
2. REPLACE plastic products with reusable long lasting alternatives:
Plastic shopping bags – replace & bring your own reusable bags.
Plastic water bottles – replace with metal/glass reusable bottles.
Plastic containers & tupperware – replace with glass containers.
Plastic lined cups & plastic lids – replace with a to-go stainless steel thermos mug.
Plastic utensils – replace with reusable bamboo to-go utensils.
Plastic plates – replace with paper plates.
3. REDUCE & REUSE everyday plastic products when possible:
Clean and re-use plastic products you already have.
4. RECYCLE, it really does make a difference:
Re-image plastic products as a resource to be captured and used, instead of a waste to be disposed. You would be amazed at all the products that are being created with what we recycle. If you must use plastic, choose the most commonly recycled & less harmful plastics: #1 (PETE) or #2 (HDPE). Here are the common labels and a guide to the dangers & tips for safer use plastic.
5. PARTICIPATE at cleaning up your local beach:
Join your community at local beach clean ups and 'take 3 for the sea' every time you visit the beach. If you see it just pick it up!
