Hi, I’m Poppy and welcome to Pull the Plastic. We’re a small business with one big dream: to make reducing your daily plastic waste simple, fun and fashionable!
 
It all started when my mum and I decided to try going plastic-free – we couldn’t believe just how many products contain plastic, and how hard it can be to source alternatives! Why isn’t there one place where you can find all your makeup, personal care, and household products? Why do you have to shop around at umpteen different places? Well we’re trying to put a stop to that.

So what’s all the fuss about? Why should we be reducing our plastic waste? Over the last ten years we have produced more plastic than during the whole of the last century – 50% of the plastic we use, we use just once and throw away. It takes 500-100 years for plastic to degrade. We’re polluting our oceans, our cities, our countryside, as well as our air in the production of these materials. And it’s not just the planet that takes a hit – plastic chemicals in products such as water bottles can be absorbed by the human body.. we are literally poisoning ourselves with plastic. But luckily there are plenty of alternatives :)
