Avoiding single-use plastics in a pandemic

Avoiding single-use plastics in a pandemic

And how not to go backwards

In mid-2019, we conducted a study on single-use plastic avoidance.

Our data – published here – revealed that up 70% of us were avoiding plastics most of the time. Then Covid-19 hit.

In The Conversation, our resident plastics experts and Department of Environment, Water, Land and Planning PhD candidate, Kim Borg, talks about the gains we’d made and how to maintain momentum, despite seeing plastics as essential to good hygiene.

A lot of things are still in our control, she argues.
