Reducing Plastic Waste - Tip of the Month!
Each month we are aiming to bring you a new and fun tip to reduce plastic waste in your everyday life. This month Tammi, our clean ocean campaigner, has this awesome tip for you:
February is here, the month of love and life and this year we have a whole extra day to commit to helping our oceans and protecting the planet! How are you going to spend your leap year day?
Did you know that bamboo can be harvested over and over again without having to replant? It is not only 100% biodegradable but also incredibly sustainable. This makes it a fantastic alternative to plastic. You can read more about the Benefits of Bamboo here.
That is why today I wanted to talk to you about toothbrushes, an everyday necessity that we all need and use. Around 3.5 million plastic toothbrushes are sold annually in the United States alone, they typically cannot be recycled either so most of these will end up in landfills.
With a bamboo toothbrush once you have finished using it you can remove the bristles and simply pop the handle into a composter, either at home or a commercial one.
If you want to try out Bamboo Toothbrushes or perhaps you need some new ones then Ocean Helper have some great deals on them at the moment - you can save over 60% today when you buy one of our multipacks! Click here to get yours today!
Ocean Helper's February 2020
As February is considered Fish Free February we wanted to take a look at the fishing industry. We know many of our supporters and followers would rather still support the fishing industry, but only in a sustainable and responsible way. Read more on that here. We also shared a petition demanding that takeaway delivery companies Deliveroo, Just Eat and Menulog take shark fins off their menu. Click on the image below to read more and sign the petition:
If you have a petition you want us to share or have a cause you need the world to hear about then we would love to hear from you! You can contact us either on Facebook, Instagram, Twitter or via email directly - firstname.lastname@example.org
So far this month we have celebrated Valentine's Day & World Whale Day! Later this month you can look forward to Polar Bear Day on the 27th, as well as that we have a petition on how you can protect polar bears and also a new step in the fight against plastic. Keep an eye on your inbox for our emails with more information on those topics!
Surfers Against Sewage
Surfers against sewage have laid out their action plan for the next 10 years, with some incredible goals that we can all get behind!
Will you do your part to protect the ocean?
They have been awarding more plastic free communities up and down the UK and it is inspiring to see so many communities come together to fight plastic pollution. There are more mass unwraps taking place too, collecting pointless plastic from shoppers at local supermarkets and sending it back to the supplier and manufacturers.
