Eco-Friendly Recycling Ideas


Background pattern

We put together this list of eco friendly products to show you just how easy it can be to replace some of the plastic products you buy and support those making products out of recycled plastic. By replacing them, you can virtually eliminate your single use plastic waste in that area. By purchasing recycled plastic products you are helping to close the loop of the circular economy.

One of the best ways to fight plastic pollution is to live by example and ensure the products you buy are produced with both ethics and the environment in mind.

Also, don’t forget to share the journey with your friends and family.  The more friends you convince, the more people you share articles like this one with, the more people will begin using environmentally friendly products in their everyday lives, and that is how we change the world.

Scroll down to see where you can make some simple changes with eco friendly products that can have big impacts on your environmental footprint.

Zero Waste Shopping Gear

A close up of food

Many people don’t realise how much plastic is wasted when they go shopping. Thankfully, there are eco friendly products that can quickly reduce or eliminate your plastic shopping plastic waste.

Here at Onya, all our reusable bags are made using rPET material which is a fabric made from recycled BPA free plastic drink bottles. In addition, all Onya reusable products are recyclable at the end of their life cycle.

1. Reusable Bread Bag

Carry your bread home in style without any packaging waste. The Onya Reusable Bread Bag is made from up to 10x recycled plastic drink bottles and is designed to replace single use paper or plastic bread bags, plastic toggles and ties.

Perfect for the home baker too. Bread stored in one of our bread bags can last up to 3 months in a frost free freezer and will not sustain freezer burn due to the unique double lining and airtight roll and lock closure.

2. Reusable Produce Bags

Instead of using the produce bags from the grocery store and throwing them out when your food is brought home, you can use the Onya reusable produce bags and never tear off and throw away a plastic produce bag again.

They also let water and air through, so you can wash your fruits and veggies within the bags when you get home.

3. Reusable Bulk Food Bags

The Reusable Bulk Food Bags from Onya were designed to help people easily and conveniently transport their bulk food purchases home. The bags have been designed as a lightweight top up tool to replace the need for carrying heavy jars and canisters when doing your shopping.

Our bulk food bag set includes a large, medium and small bulk food bag along with our specially designed bulk food shopping tote and carrying case. Each size bag and the tote are also available individually so you can customise to your needs.

4. Reusable Shopping Bags

Plastic shopping bags from the grocery store (or any retail store) produce even more waste than single use plastic produce bags.

The Onya Reusable Shopping Bag scrunches down into an attached pouch so you always have it On Ya to carry your groceries and other items, eliminating your plastic waste from shopping bags every time you shop.
