POLICYMAKERS

Piggy Bank

After a short first-use cycle,

95% of plastic packaging material value,

or 80–120 US billion annually,

is lost to the economy.

Ask your policymaker why

From the cost of the item we purchase to the final price tag on our cities, planet and health, plastics are very expensive, after all. 

As of now, we are paying for the products,

the recycling that doesn't happen and

for the present, plus future damages

to our environment and health.

Wouldn't it be better to just pay for a more sustainable system

ASK VENDORS

AND MERCHANTS

FOR ALTERNATIVES

# 2 - 

Merchants and Vendors want to make 

you happy. They want your business. 

Good sustainable alternatives to food packaging are typically more expensive than plastic ones. 

However, if customers refuse to use the plastic and/or "compostable plastic" options

(knowing here why), the provider will change

its ways. 

Tell your vendors that you want the choice.

A sustainable product cost about $0.10 to $0.25 more; offer to pay the difference.

Even better: bring your own to-go container and utensils!

INCONVENIENCED

Every

decision

counts

Every choice you make influences 

brand owners who decide how to manufacture their products. 

Their wrapped tomatoes sales are declining?

 

They will find out why and

offer more unwrapped tomatoes.

Avoid plastics whenever possible

Your kids love puree in a plastic pouch and love juices in

plastic bottles?

Every time these items are  purchased, it creates

a toxic legacy.

Going the extra mile

is time consuming,

annoying, and...

powerful.

and it is only a matter of awareness.

know our actions are harmful?
