National Recycling Week
Here at EcoBin Australia, changing people’s waste habits for a cleaner planet is at the heart of everything we do. Did you know that over 130,000 tonnes of waste end up in Australian oceans each year? How about that most of this waste ends up in the oceans simply because it was placed in the WRONG bin?
Without the world making serious changes to the way we manage our waste (and consumption in general), we will eventually overrun our oceans with pollution. This National Recycling Week, we have partnered with Plastic Oceans Australasia to raise awareness and inspire change around our recycling habits, and the positive impacts that a few small, conscious changes can have on our oceans and the wildlife it inhabits.
From the 8-14 November, our team at EcoBin will be donating 3% of all our online sales to Plastic Oceans Australasia, an organisation who aims (and is well on its way) to improve education about plastic pollution and encourage individuals and businesses to reduce plastic to live sustainably without single use plastic.
By all of us ‘putting it in the right bin’, we can keep our waterways clear so our marine life, coral reefs and clear waters can continue to thrive.
About Plastic Oceans Australasia
With a goal to educate people of all ages on the importance of reducing their plastic footprint, Plastic Oceans Australasia’s key mission is to address the problem of single-use plastic consumption and change peoples attitudes towards plastic within a generation.
Founded in 2017, Plastic Oceans Australasia has already used its science-based background to develop the award-winning documentary, ‘A Plastic Ocean.’ The team also works strenuously every day to construct science-backed programs and educational material so more and more Australians come to know the importance of keeping their country clean and living sustainably without plastic.
