Every year, Australians use approximately 1.3 million tonnes of plastic. However, almost 50 percent of that plastic is recycled, which prevents it from ending up in landfills where it can pollute the earth for years to come. Unfortunately, the bad news is that even though Australians recycle a lot of plastic, half of it does end up in the same landfills that we just mentioned.
Although Australia is reducing the amount of plastic being used, AusPen is doing what they can to reduce their personal footprint.
The refillable whiteboard markers from AusPen are an excellent example of plastic products that are literally made to be reused for years to come. While other whiteboard markers need to be replaced after they run out of ink, AusPen sells refillable whiteboard markers that can be brought back to life through the use of refill ink and replacement nibs. One container of ink can refill your AusPen marker 40 times. You won’t have to throw out and replace your whiteboard markers; you simply need to refill them. Auspen’s dry erase markers are economical and eco-friendly, making them a simple way that you can help to preserve the environment. Our markers won’t contribute to Australia’s plastic waste problem and we are proud of that.
What can you do personally to reduce plastic production? Australians should go out of their way to try and find ways to limit the amount of plastic waste they produce. By doing something as simple as using a thermos or reusable cup rather a plastic one or using an electric shaver instead of razors, you can easily cut down on how much plastic you are wasting on an individual level. You should also find plastic products that can be used over and over again if you are going to buy them. When products are easy to reuse, you won’t have any trouble finding new uses for them.
