Come visit us at our Oxford Market stall for more information and nosey through our products.

50% of the plastic we use, we use just once and throw away. The problem with plastic is there is no 'away' - it's still there, just slowly breaking into ever smaller pieces. Every year around 500 billion plastic bags are used worldwide. More than one million bags are used every minute. We’re polluting our oceans, our cities, our countryside, as well as our air in the production of these materials. We NEED to start choosing safer alternatives.

So if you haven't guessed already, what's Pull the Plastic all about?

Hi, I’m Poppy and welcome to Pull the Plastic. We’re a small business with one big dream: to make reducing your daily plastic waste simple, fun and fashionable! It all started when my mum and I decided to try going plastic-free – we couldn’t believe just how many products contain plastic, and how hard it can be to source alternatives! Why isn’t there one place where you can find all your makeup, personal care, and household products? Why do you have to shop around at umpteen different places? Well we’re trying to put a stop to that.

 Plastic in the ocean breaks down into such small segments that pieces of plastic from a one liter bottle could end up on every mile of beach throughout the world.

 One million sea birds and 100,000 marine mammals are killed annually from plastic in our oceans.

So what's all the fuss about? Why should we be reducing our plastic waste?

Over the last ten years we have produced more plastic than during the whole of the last century – 50% of the plastic we use, we use just once and throw away. It takes 500-100 years for plastic to degrade. We’re polluting our oceans, our cities, our countryside, as well as our air in the production of these materials. And it’s not just the planet that takes a hot – plastic chemicals in products such as water bottles can be absorbed by the human body.. we are literally poisoning ourselves with plastic.

But let’s not leave things on such a depressing note.. we CAN choose a better future, there ARE alternatives.. So come see us at our little stall and have a mosey through our product range from makeup and personal care to household and eating on the go.

Because reducing your waste doesn’t have to be the most difficult thing you’ve attempted so far, and the ‘greener’ option can be bright, fun, fashionable, as well as functional!
