Join thousands of other Australian homes and wave goodbye to single-use plastic from your kitchen.
On average, Australian households produce 540kg of waste per person, each year. However, due to the COVID-19 global pandemic, household waste was up 20 percent last year. During this time, Australian homes consistently produced levels of waste usually seen at Christmas.
Of the millions of tons of waste produced, nearly half of this is related to household single-use plastics. The pandemic-prompted a resurgence of single-use items like masks, takeaway containers and a ban on reusable coffee cups. Additionally, demand for cleaning products skyrocketed, due to heightened consumer awareness and concern regarding the importance of hygiene and spread of disease. With most conventional cleaning products being sold in irresponsible, throw-away packing, this was also a major driver for increased waste production.
It’s therefore more important than ever to make a conscious effort to reduce your household waste. A great place to start is in the kitchen, particularly the cleaning products you’re using in this space. Being a high traffic room, where food preparation takes place, the kitchen is exposed to many germs (often combatted with harsh chemicals!). Read on to see how you can purge plastics and introduce sustainability into the heart of your home.
With the numerous spray and wipe bottles, paper towels, short-life sponges and miscellaneous products, kitchen cleaning waste stacks up. Not to mention the nasty chemicals these products contain, and the rubber gloves you’ll need to protect your skin!
