Australians alone throw over one million plastic bread bags into landfill every single day. More than 400,000,000 plastic bread bags each year!
Most people these days will eat some sort of bread daily. Whether it be toast for breakfast, a fresh sandwich for lunch, or needing breadcrumbs to crumb a schnitzel for dinner. Bread is usually a staple in family homes around Australia.
So, how can we stop the plastic contribution coming from bread? Easy!
By getting yourself a reusable bread bag! We’re already making the switch from single use plastic shopping bags currently in Australia, so why can't we do exactly the same for the bags that we collect, transport and store our breads in?
Once you have your very own reusable bread bag (get yours here), just take it to your local bakery and have them put an un-bagged loaf into it for you (once sliced if you wish). It’s that easy! Plus if you don’t already purchase FRESH bread from a bakery, your body will be thankful for the change too – get away from all those nasty preservatives you find in store bought bread.
By making this one simple change, together we can make a global impact.
