Sustainability at Rethink Plastic

We support United Nations Sustainable Development Goals and the provision of environmentally friendly products to Australian communities.

Rethink Plastic Australia is very proud when it comes to sustainability. We all need to have a sustainable life and share information to others. We all need to decide what kind of world we want to live in by 2030?

In the following section, you will learn how to become sustainable as a person, a community and a country.

What is living sustainably?

Living sustainably is about choices and behaviours, both big and small, that enhance our lives, care for our environment and encourage us to live within our means.

A sustainable community and world is one which supports itself and its surroundings. It is the practice of reducing our impact on the earth’s natural resources, reducing our carbon footprint and living healthier lives.

Simple ways that you can live a sustainable life:

  • Grow your own food
  • Minimise single use items
  • Use water wisely
  • Shop Sustainably
  • Socially Responsible Investment
  • Go Plastic Free #RETHINKPLASTIC
  • Stop accepting disposable cutlery.

Why live sustainably?

Making choices to live sustainably is an opportunity to:

  • Learn about your environment
  • Stay up-to-date with developments in technology
  • Save money and precious finite resources
  • Connect with others who are passionate about protecting our natural resources, oceans, wildlife and future generations.

Living sustainably will give back far more than the effort you put in. The Earth and future generations will thank you!
