A lot of ‘green options’ in packaging are simply not what they claim. Did you know many ‘eco’ or ‘biodegradable’ products still contain plastic? And that most regular supplier catalogues have plastic in them?
But help is at hand - we've been working with manufacturers to create special plastic-free catalogues - to make finding the right products easier.
AS EASY AS 1-2-3!
Step 1: Use our catalogues below to find the products that suit your needs.
Step 2: Scroll down to the suppliers list and identify which carry your chosen product lines.
Step 3: Order and make the switch.
If you have a local supplier already, just start with step 2.
ONE LAST TIP:
Be clear to your supplier exactly what products you are ordering. Most product manufacturers also carry plastic lines, so if you just say 'coffee cup lids', you may get plastic ones! Ensure to identify yourself as a Plastic Free SA member.
