Here at Without Waste we have a mission to inspire everyone to a plastic free lifestyle. We aim to make a low waste lifestyle accessible to everyone by offering plastic free reusable options to everyday single use items.
Without Waste was created by our founder Hannah who is passionate about living plastic free. When talking about her low waste lifestyle to her friends and family she realised that others were just as passionate as she is once they were educated on the topic but they just simply didn’t know where to start. And thats when Without Waste was born. Hannah wanted to make plastic free reusable alternatives accessible to everyone and make reducing waste that little bit easier.
So why plastic free? Since 1950 there has been an astonishing estimated 8.3 billion metric tonnes of plastic produced and only a pitiful 9% of that plastic has been recycled. This is a huge problem for us as most of this plastic used is for a one off basis and is single use then tossed straight into landfill where it sits and pollutes our earth and seas. There are 500 times more pieces of microplastic in the sea than there are stars in our galaxy and by 2050 it is estimated there will be more plastic than fish. That is one shocking and sad statistic. Together we can change this by asking ourselves simple questions. Do I REALLY need this plastic item or could I do without? Do I have to buy this item new or could I source it second hand? Do I REALLY need this single use item or could it be replaced with something that can be used time and time again? Thats where we come in. We help making saying goodbye to our plastic addictions that little bit easier. We offer multi use plastic free items to our regular throw away alternatives. Saying goodbye to that one more piece of trash.
