If you’ve been following me on Facebook, you’ll know I’m passionate about breaking our collective addiction to plastic.To change the system (by that I mean our over the top obsession and addiction to plastic), all we need is a lot of people sending out new signals. To this end, I’ve created some documents, purely for this purpose.
There are a number to choose from: one tells the shop you didn’t buy a product because it was wrapped in plastic, another tells the shop you spent money in their store because they didn’t wrap in plastic, and there are some great small and large signs to display as reassurance to customers that they don’t need a bag. For an example, please watch my banana experiment video here.
We must tell businesses we’ll only give them our money if they stop wrapping food in plastic. And we need to reeducate consumers, that it’s cool, to not take a plastic bag.
Following are links to change the world. You, me, a printer and phone … that’s all we need … and a little but of assertiveness … who’s with me?
