Plastic Bottles & Bottle Tops


When you next run out buy paper or bamboo alternatives, and remember; don't flush them down the loo! 

Plastic coffee lids & stirrers

  • Refuse a lid where possible
  • Invest in a reusable cup
  • Take the time to sit in and enjoy the coffee in a washable mug


  • When you order a drink, say 'No straw please!'.
  • At home, invest in reusable metal straws.
  • Most people are happy to drink from a glass. Or for a party, buy paper straws. 

Disposable Cutlery

Carry your own set or a handy spork (spoon/fork in one)

Plastic Bags

  • Choose to refuse bags, even the small ones.
  • Carry a reusable tote bag with you.
  • Biodegradable bags are not the solution as they break down quicker into the smaller particles
