THE PLASTIC FREE DRINKS CAMPAIGN

Shocked by plastic pollution in this beautiful country and inspired by many other campaigns we decided to start the Plastic Free Drinks campaign. Our goal is to help reduce single-use plastic in our communities. Working together with cafes, restaurants and hotels we help them find alternatives to plastic, as well as promoting "reuse" habits to customers!

Who’s is involved?
