FAQs

What happens after I join?

Once you join, we'll make a time to come sit down with you, check out your current products, find alternatives and solutions that work for you, and identify where you can get them. In most cases, you'll be able to stick with your current distributor.

We'll bring catalogues and samples so you can see and try out alternatives. We can help you with signage, staff training and give you easy solutions to reduce costs. And we're on hand to assist you through the entire process. ‚Äč

What plastic items will you help me eliminate?

Our program will help you eliminate six single-use plastic items; water bottles, coffee cups/ lids, straws, food ware (cutlery, cups, lids etc), takeaway containers and plastic bags.

We chose these items specifically as they are commonly found in the litter and waste streams and pose significant risks to wildlife. They also have readily available solutions.

These items form the basis of our Plastic Free Champion system and give members specific targets to work towards. However, we can assist you with other plastics as well, just ask when we come to chat to you. We continue to work on back-of-house and composting solutions for our members as well.
