Plastics-Free - Would you choose a paper bag?

Collins, Clare



Do you ever find yourself standing in the supermarket trying to decide whether it is better to buy milk in a glass bottle, plastic bottle or a tetrapak? Plastic-Free July is celebrating its 10th Anniversary this year, a movement to encourage the switch from single-use plastics to reusable items. This talk will discuss the need to consider our plastics usage, some of the sustainability complexities around switching from plastic products and some actions that we can all take towards sustainable living.
