We stumbled across Charles Moore’s Sea of Plastic TED talk and were shocked.  Watch this sitting down. Seeing plastic bags and bottles floating in the ocean is really upsetting. So we’re looking at what difference we can make with The Rocks Push.  To start with, we’ve packaged our shorts in their own bags as usual but this season, the bags are made from 100% recycled plastic bottles. We’re working on more ways to make things better and we’ll keep you updated. We asked a friend who knows about these things for her tips on ways to reduce plastic use, and therefore reduce the plastic we throw away. She recommends carrying a reusable bag for shopping, collecting the plastic bags from your online supermarket delivery to give to the next delivery person, carrying a water bottle that is refillable.  Been waiting for an excuse to buy an aluminium water bottle.
