Plastic Free July: Our Favourite Zero-Waste Swaps

How many pieces of plastic have you used today? Have you ordered a takeaway coffee in a disposable cup? Maybe you wrapped up your lunchusing plastic wrap? Whether we like to admit it or not, plastic has become so commonplace in our lives that the world has grown complacent…and it’s about time we did something about it!

Participate in Plastic Free July

Plastic Free July is a global movement that encourages people and communities to reduce their plastic usage. The initiative started from humble beginnings in Perth and has since grown to become a global movement, inspiring millions of people worldwide to reduce their wastage.

In honour of Plastic Free July, we wanted to share our favourite zero-waste swaps at Nurcha to help you realise that zero-waste living can be easy and fun!

Swap THIS for THAT

Takeaway coffee cup for Ever Eco Reusable Cup

One of the most common litter items is disposable coffee cups – stay classy and grab your morning caffeine fix in a stylish reusable cup instead. Not only is it a great conversation starter with their stylish designs but they keep your coffee hot and your iced latte cold!

Plastic toothbrush for Bamboo Toothbrush

There is no greater feeling than freshly brushed teeth… unless, of course you’ve brushed them with a biodegradable bamboo toothbrush. Say goodbye to BPA-laden plastic brushes and say hello to clean teeth and gums, minus the landfill!

Plastic bin bags for Compostable Bag Liners

The only thing sillier than throwing away so much single-use plastic is collecting it all in one giant plastic bag. These compostable bin liners are perfect for collecting scraps from fruit and veg and you can pop them straight into your home compost without getting your fingers dirty!

Gladwrap for Reusable Wraps

Did you know that Australia uses 70 billion pieces of soft “scrunchable” plastics every year? Imagine how much unnecessary plastic you could save if you swapped your Gladwrap for a reusable wax wrap. Wax wraps are great for storing food in the fridge, wrapping up your leftover avocado, or taking snacks on the go!

Shampoo bottles for Shampoo Bars

Save yourself up to six bottles of shampoo and conditioner with just one single, plastic-free shampoo bar! Suitable for all hair types, this bar will keep your locks looking luscious and healthy and keep harmful micro-plastics out of our waterways.

Plastic cutlery for Portable Cutlery Set

Don’t be caught out without a fork or forced to accept a plastic straw with your takeaway. This stylish stainless steel cutlery set will slide neatly into your handbag so that you’re always armed and ready when it comes time to enjoy a meal on the go!

These small swaps might seem simple but they still add up to make a huge difference! So far, 140 million Plastic Free July participants have refused 301 million everyday plastic items and reduced 2.1 million tonnes of waste.

Take the plastic-free pledge with us today and do your part by taking a stance against plastic!
