Did you know that 9 out 10 seabirds have plastic in them?
We recently co-hosted a green networking and documentary night and screened A Plastic Ocean. The documentary was released in 2016 and couldn't be more relevant and important today.
If you haven't seen it we cannot recommend it enough. Just when you think the plastic pollution problem couldn't get any worse, you watch this documentary and your mind is completely blown!
We had a perfect evening for it as we watched the sunset on the rooftop of the amazing location called 77 Theatre in 1 of the many beautiful hutong areas of Beijing.
All the drinks we served at the event were from brands that have reusable bottles (3rd R), not recyclable (5th R). Remember to be aiming for the 3rd R before the 5th R.
All snacks were bought in bulk and there wasn't a plastic straw, plastic bottle or plastic bag in sight. Hosting events, even outdoor events, do not need to create waste. Just plan a head a little bit.
We look forward to many other events that spread the joy of zero waste. We have done many many more, but, we are just a bit slow at posting about them. We shall post more soon to show our amazing followers what we have been up to.
A bunch of flowers makes a heartfelt gift. It’s also a chance to make a simple swap and request your bouquet to be wrapped in paper - without the ribbon. Choose to refuse single use plastic with every purchase and you spread the message that single use plastic is not cool. But blooms wrapped in rustic brown paper are! #noexcuseforsingleuse ⠀
When it’s gonna be about 90 at work today, and you left your big bottle at work.... think reusable! We have a problem with plastic pollution and you can help! Use reusable bottles, support companies like 4ocean, for every bracelet you buy you find the removal of one pound of plastics from the ocean! This special edition coral one also provides funding for coral reef regeneration! #plasticfreejuly#thinkreusable#4ocean#endplasticpollution#plasticsdontvanish

Plastic Free July is here! Sign up to join the challenge @plasticfreejuly. I know it can feel overwhelming to give up plastic, but try to focus on one area of your life or one room in your house and start there. Taking it one step at a time is much more attainable than trying to change everything at once. There are great tips on the @plasticfreejuly site to get started.
Pinch and a punch!!
For a fabulous month!!
It's PLASTIC FREE JULY!! ♻
Keep an eye out for prizes and giveaways from us this month. We want to reward YOU for taking constant steps in the right direction.
This month, for us, is in honour of our future generations 💚 What is your reason for going plastic free? ....... pic by @ever.eco - Happy Plastic Free July 🌿 Refusing plastic straws is one of the easiest ways to reduce waste. These Straw Kits make it convenient to BYO while out and about, with a stainless steel/rose gold straw & cleaning brush bundled up in an organic cotton drawstring pouch. Little changes can make a big difference 💚

July 1 marks the start of #plasticfreejuly and we wanted to take this as an opportunity to thank you all for embracing our move away from plastic bags. We have been plastic bag free for six months now and have saved over 100,000 plastic bags! We cannot thank you all enough for supporting our transition away from plastic and in helping us reduce the reliance on plastic. We are continuing to explore ways we can reduce the use of plastic in all we do as a business. Thanks again for your support - we couldn’t do it without you. The Leaf Team
Microplastic for dinner anyone?
Start with shopping plastic free..it's not that hard🤓
Just bring your own bags and (glass) bottles 😉
Leave ANY plastic wrappers/whatevers at the store, they won't mind😎
