Turning the calendar over to the month of July means we are already more than halfway through 2017. Here at Pac Trading, not only are we celebrating how close we are to the New Year, but also the fact that this month we celebrate ‘PLASTIC FREE JULY’.

Plastic Free July is a campaign where millions of people around the world #choosetorefuse the use of single-use plastic, and look to use alternative recyclable and reusable materials. This is due to the various problems that the overuse of plastic have created. Things such as: becoming permanent pollution and accidental litter, ending up in waterways and the ocean damaging our sea life, carrying pollutants with them and increasing our eco-footprint just to name a few.

These problems gave 40 people in Perth, Australia the motivation to do something about this problem to not only raise awareness of the issue, but also act upon it and make a change. 2017 marks the 6th year of this awareness; and in 6 years this small group of Australians have reached out to over 1 million people in over 130 countries.

In 2017, Pac Trading would love to be a part of this fantastic cause by playing our part in providing materials and packaging to those wishing to take part. We carry an entire range of products under ‘Greenmark’ that are eco-friendly, biodegradable and recyclable.

Our range of sugarcane/bamboo trays, bowls and plates, cutlery, non-woven reusable bags and greaseproof paper are just a few examples of the products we carry that fit and match the criteria for alternatives to be used during ‘Plastic Free July’. To see our full range, their uses and how you can recycle them visit our website: http://www.greenmarkpack.com.au/gmark-products/
