RE­DUC­ING TIPS

Waihi Leader - - News -

● Avoid buy­ing items in un­nec­es­sary plas­tic. If it’s a choice be­tween ap­ples in a tube, or fruit from a bin, go for the lat­ter.

● Look for plas­tic pack­ag­ing with RPET on it. Most RPET is la­belled.

● Keep an eye out for “Flight RPET” or “Flight Plas­tics RPET” on the con­tainer if you want one ex­clu­sively made from New Zealand-used and re­cy­cled plas­tic.

● Sup­port lo­cal su­per­mar­kets that re­duce their plas­tic use.
