How to Reduce Pandemic-Related Plastic Waste

If at first, we saw the pandemic as a gift in disguise for the planet bringing back clear skies and clean rivers around the world, the second part of the pandemic brought new challenges for the environment

After years and years of fighting against single-use plastic consumption, the pandemic has put all our efforts on hold. Banning rules were not a high priority anymore and we saw a huge increase during the pandemic of single-use plastic such as personal protective equipment (PPE such as masks and gloves) but also plastic bags (since we couldn’t bring our reusable bags in the store anymore), and many plastic containers from takeaway food

“Volunteers removed 107,219 items of personal protective equipment (PPE) from beaches and waterways worldwide in second half of 2020” according to Ocean Conservancy.

You must have seen it, too. If you take a walk down the street, chances are you will find at least one blue mask or plastic glove on the ground.

What has been made to initially protect us, is actually causing long-term problems that will harm us as these single-use plastic items are now found in nature and polluting the ocean.

With takeouts orders skyrocketing, disposable plastic tableware waste has also increased. At SellSage, we also addressed this issue by launching last year Plantry, our brand of compostable tableware.
