Duration 7 days

Why you're doing this

challenge issue

Bulk goods also require less overall transportation because fewer packaging components need to be produced and transported before being filled.

Many products for around the house like pasta, rice, washing detergent, tea bags and toilet paper can be bought in large packages and stored for a long time. This reduces the amount of packaging you’re bringing into your home on a regular basis, a lot of which can’t be recycled. 

How you'll make a difference

challenge solution

Making small changes like this to our day-to-day habits all add up to help reducing the amount of plastics that can inadvertently end up in our waterways and oceans, harming wildlife.
