    Campaign: The Facts

    Plastic pollution has been hitting the headlines recently with evidence of the effect it is having on our planet and oceans clear to see. 

    Since the 1950s we have produced 18 billion tons of plastic, with at least 8 million tons leaking into the oceans each year and half of the plastic ever made being produced in the past 15 years. 

    A trillion plastic bags are used worldwide every year, with the average "working life" of just 15 minutes.

    It has been estimated that plastic lasts from between 450 years to forever? 

    Projections suggest that the ocean will contain more plastics than fish (by weight) by 2050 according to The New Plastics Economy.

    Already in some parts of the sea, there's reportedly six times more plastic in the water than plankton according to leading marine journals.

    Campaign: Your Efforts

    Thank you for all your efforts in attempting the single use plastic free parties. The TINCTURE team members have also been trying their hand at single use plastic free meals. Above is a plastic free picinc attempt! The plastic free picnic menu:
    - Smoked salmon on brown bread, olives, home made cheese straws.
    - Coronation chicken, rice salad and fresh tamoto salad.
    - Homemade brownies, strawberries and cream.

    One of the main challenges is the availablilty of unwrapped fruit and vegetables in supermarkets. Unless you know when and where your local markets are it can be difficult to find produce not wrapped. Also the time taken to go from shop-to-shop, market-to-market and then ending up back at the supermarket as the butcher, veg shop etc didn't sell what you needed for the recipes!

    I did feel I failed the challenge as the market was not there the day I went shopping, the butcher only had plastic wrap and I don't have a big enough container to put a whole chicken in. However it does make you more aware of the products you buy on a day-to-day basis and if everyone makes a small change to their daily lifestyle it will make a big difference.
