We live in a plastic world. Everything we buy is shrink-wrapped, double-bagged or cling-film coated, and it’s having an impact.  Forty per cent of all the plastic made every year is made to be thrown away, and as a result our oceans and natural spaces drowning in a sea of waste.

That’s why Environmental Defence has created The Plastic Diaries, your daily reminder that there is a life beyond and outside this plastic bubble, and that we are empowered to break free. We’ll be bringing you everything from zero-waste guides to recycling 101, and answering all of your questions about the plastic problem and what we can do about it.

Welcome to The Plastic Diaries.
