The OK BOOCHA team

put together a 

zero waste GUIDE

for beginners

to help you act upon the conscious we all have in us urging to be more respectful and care for our planet.

did you know?

Packaging accounts for over 40% of total plastic usage

Approximately 500 billion plastic bags are used worldwide each year,

with more than one million bags used every minute.

Your average plastic bag has a typical “working life” of just 15 minutes.

Only 1% of plastic bags are recycled worldwide.

 

Over the last ten years we have produced more plastic

than during the whole of the last century.

Each year marine waste kills at least

100,000 marine animals and 1 million seabirds

STEP 1:

INFORM YOURSELF!

STEP 2:

SAY NO!

When you are out and about getting your groceries

or lunch say no to:

 

PLASTIC STRAWS

PLASTIC BAGS

PLASTIC CUTLERY

FREE JUNK

SAMPLES IN LITTLE PLASTIC CUPS

FOOD ITEMS WRAPPED IN PLASTIC IN PLASTIC IN PLASTIC

CHEAP PLASTIC JUNK THAT WILL 90% CHANCE END UP IN THE BIN

EVEN BETTER:

Think ahead and bring your own:

COFFEE KEEP CUP

STAINLESS STEEL STRAW

SHOPPING TOTE

VEGGIE BAGS

CONTAINER

CUTLERY

You don't have to buy every zero waste alternative product at once but slowly introduce them into your daily life once your plastic & wasteful products run out. Some examples:

STEP 3:

swap the basics

STEP 4:

buy bulk!

It obviously depends on where you are located and what is available in your area but most health food shops and more and more super markets offer bulk supply of among other:

DRY GOODS (grains, seeds, nuts, flour)

SWEETS

DRINKS ( our OKBOOCHA!)

BODY WASH & SHAMPOO

DETERGENTS

HONEY

OILS

NUT BUTTERS

Keep your ears and eyes open for new venues and products!

Spread the word & make other people aware

of what our wasteful lifestyle does to our precious planet!

The more awareness and care, the more initiative and alternatives will become available.

Each one of us can make a change!

STEP 5:

SPREAD THE LOVE!
