Plastic Free July

June 24, 2022 Team Goodness

At Honest to Goodness, one of our driving values is minimising our footprint on the environment. We are particularly passionate about supporting organic and regenerative agriculture to bring you our products. 

Thanks to the work of many great research and advocacy organisations, the message against single-use plastic has spread across Australia, and we have seen a 30% reduction in plastic pollution on Australia’s coast, in the 6 years up to 2019[1]. However there is more to be done to ensure that single use plastic products do not leak into our waterways or anywhere they could harm our natural world. Zero-Waste Chef Anne-Marie Bonneau, writing for Plastic – free July, recommends the top four types of plastic waste to avoid are single use: plastic bags, water bottles, coffee cups and plastic straws[2]. Here in NSW, the government has recently banned single use plastic bags as well as straws, plastic single use cutlery and cotton buds[3].

At Honest to Goodness, one of our driving values is minimising our footprint on the environment. We are particularly passionate about supporting organic and regenerative agriculture to bring you our products. We are in the process of investigating packaging options which have the lowest total life cycle footprint, accounting for energy use, water use and end of life options, including recyclability or composability. Because we take such care to source the best quality products, and because of the significant environmental impact of food waste[4], our priority is packaging which keeps your food in optimal condition. Read more about our search for a packaging solution that works here.

One great way to minimise your plastic footprint is to buy in bulk. Did you know that many of our products are sold at your local bulk food store. If you are in Sydney, you can visit Honest to Goodness house in Alexandria, and stock up on your staples in bulk. Have you considered splitting a product with a friend? Why not start a community buying group with Honest to Goodness, so you can buy in bulk! This also allows for savings on your favourite Honest to Goodness products.
