It is not difficult to make a difference and reduce plastic waste at home. From using cardboard packaged products, to swapping liquid soap for bar soap, there are many small changes that we can easily implement into our lifestyles, which can have a positive impact on the environment and help to create a cleaner world.
One hundred and twenty million people are choosing to be plastic-free this July and at MASECO we are encouraging you to join us and the rest of the community in doing our bit to support this important cause. This week we share our top five tips in order to reduce plastic, as well as some astonishing facts that really got us thinking about just how important this campaign is.
As we approach the special occasion of American Independence Day, MASECO would like to wish all American citizens, whether residing in the UK or the USA, a very happy 4th of July! It has been a tough year for everyone, with many families being separated from their loved ones, and isolated from the rest of the world.
Plastic is the number one product people use each day, despite how damaging it is to the environment. Plastic Free July is all about encouraging people to be more aware of their plastic use with an end goal of creating a cleaner world.
