Plastic is a miracle man-made material. It can be found everywhere. Our lives would be difficult to imagine without plastics. But our appetite for cheaply produced plastic goods and disposable products is drowning the planet. Plastic is non-biodegradable. If not recycled, it can last for thousands of years, and many plastic items are not recycled, like plastic straws and bags.

But how can you cut down plastic use in your workplace? Here are our top tips for simple changes you can implement to create a plastic-free workplace.
