04 Ways to Reduce Waste

The Sunglass Fix

WATER BOTTLES

The Facts:

Did you know that most of the bottled water you buy is just glorified tap water, with 90% of its cost due to packaging rather than water quality? Only 1 out of 5 plastic bottles is recycled, and since it takes 1 plastic bottle 700 years to start decomposing, plastic is the number 1 threat to our marine ecosystem. 

Do Your Part:

Use a reusable water bottle (glass or metal) instead of buying plastic. You will save money and help save the planet! 


KEEP CUPS

The Facts:

Australians spend an estimated 1 billion disposable coffee cups each year - approximately 2,700,000 cups thrown in the trash per day! 

Do Your Part:

Take a reusable coffee cup (commonly known as a keep cup) with you to the coffee shop. You’ll save hundreds of cups per year and often times a few dollars on your bean from coffee shops who care about the environment!


RAZORS

The Facts:

The EPA estimates that 2 billion razors are thrown away each year. You can recycle the steel blades (check with your local recycling center first), but the typical disposable razor is going to the landfill. When the average person shaves daily and most don’t consider razors wasteful, it’s time we get shave smart.

Do Your Part

Use a reusable steel razor with switchable blades. No plastic, no worries!



SUNGLASSES

The Facts:

Sunglasses are just one more item that get tossed in the bin when they’re broken or damaged. Everyone owns at least one pair of sunnies, which means there are billions in existence and ultimately in landfills.  


Do Your Part:

Don’t just replace your damaged sunnies - fix them. Sunglass lenses are easily replaced, and can be repaired at home with little effort and at a fraction of the cost of purchasing a new pair. Sunglass Fix is an Australian company with over 100,000 quality replacement lens options, custom lenses available for any frame and free worldwide shipping.
