The best way of making our oceans plastic-free is by not letting the rubbish get there in the first place. One source of plastic is milk containers. Even though these are recyclable, evidence suggests that this only happens with a small proportion. They are not easy to avoid but one way is to order from your local milk man. Glass bottles are used on average 25 times and then recycled into new glass bottles. Perhaps a little more expensive but surely we’re worth it!
