Refuse, reuse, refill
Reuse and refill: Wash and reuse plastic bags, bottles and food containers.
Refuse plastic when you can.
Recycle: Put plastics in your recycling bin. Hassle your council to provide recycling bins in public areas.
Help make a difference: Become a volunteer and sign up some cafes as RefillNZ Stations near you.
Plastic water bottles are recyclable here in New Zealand
You can stop plastic pollution from reaching the ocean
by picking up litter, especially in gutters, near waterways, on walking / MT bike tracks and on beaches.
