More plastic has been produced in the last 10 years than was produced in the whole of the last century, and less than 5% of plastics are recycled worldwide. Clean Up Australia Day notes that over the past 20 years, plastic continues to be the most common item of rubbish picked up during clean up.
Plastic pollution is a global problem, with the biggest offender being single use plastic items. EORTH — was founded with a primary goal — to combat this problem.
It's time to remove the plastic products at the source, as we work on the solutions to the plastic problem.
Please note: While EORTH strives to be 100% Plastic Free — some stickers and biodegradable plastics on the product packaging from our suppliers may be present in the products we supply. These are noted on the individual product pages.
EORTH donates 1% of our profits to Rainforest Rescue, an Australian non-profit organisation.
The packaging we use for void fill in shipping our plastic free products is plastic free! EORTH® uses a die cut kraft paper and tissue interleaf combination, secured with hemp rope, acting as a cushion to protect products during shipment.
Our packaging boxes and Jiffy bags are made from recycled cardboard, either 100% or 70% recycled and 30% virgin — depending on the parcel size.
We continue to look for alternatives to single use plastic items, and welcome your feedback and as we work towards becoming your 100% single use Plastic Free Shopping source.
