PLASTICS & ENVIRONMENTAL CHECKLIST
This refers to general activities conducted by your group or business – functions, parties, staff meetings, fund raisers etc. . Each time you do an activity take a few moment to do the check list below. Share with everyone that the group is conscious of minimising waste at the event. Easy.
Importantly the checklist items are: “where practical” or “as best we can” or “improving our practices”. It is not about absolute perfection and making your activities difficult – being fully plastic free is unrealistic and puts people off. A 20% or 50% reduction in waste is great or simply affirming the actions you already have in place keeps people thinking about environmental responsibility.
1 – Purchase/sell products with the least possible plastic packaging and where possible avoid bottled water.
2 – Prefer non-plastic drinking straws, cutlery, plates and non-polystyrene/Styrofoam containers.
3 – Encourage members to bring refillable water bottles and reusable coffee cups.
4 – Avoid balloons and where reasonable other plastic items for decorations.
5 – After the activity remove as much of yours and other’s plastics from the area. And recycle as much as possible.
