Porcupus Challenge: Say No To Plastic

At Porcupus we believe in preserving the environment and leaving the world a better place for the future generation. A little can really go a long way.

To put words into action, we at Porcupus pledge to shift to plastic-free packaging in an effort to reduce plastic waste. Our paper postal mailing bags are manufactured from responsible, sustainable sources and they are both compostable and degradable, and paper mailers can be easily recycled, making this an extremely eco-friendly option.

Join us in our pledge to reduce plastic waste.

For so long, we have been relying on plastic in our daily lives. Bags, straws, food containers, packaging, bottles and so much more are used once and tossed away to fill some dumpster or end up in the ocean. Little did we know, they end up being consumed by marine life and eventually, it kills them.

It’s nice to just close one eye and assume our trash is discarded carefully and responsibly. We toss it into the recycle bin thinking it’s going to be recycled and reborn into another water bottle or food container. Truth is, 91% of the plastic we dispose isn’t recycled. So let’s reduce that number by refusing to use plastic. Here’s a few things you can do to start reducing:

  • Stop buying bottled water. Instead, use your own reusable bottle and fill it up wherever you can such as your office pantry, the gym, airport, etc.
  • Stop buying takeout in plastic containers. Bring your own food container or Tupperware. Yes it can be troublesome and bulky but you’d be able to avoid plastic and Styrofoam.
  • Stop using plastic straws, even in restaurants. Use a reusable stainless steel or organic straw if you must.
  • Use a reusable produce bag. It can take over 1,000 years for a single plastic bag to degrade. Bring your own reusable shopping bag with you at all times just in case you need to grab something from the grocer. Or if your purchase is small enough, just toss them into your pocket or your purse.

It's time to make a change for the future of our planet. A little goes a long way.
