Buy Steely and help save our planet

Ever wondered how you could cut down the amount of plastic you throw away? The average family uses 55 kilograms of plastic every year. 40% of it is only used once and 8 million tonnes of it goes into the ocean every year. Making a small change like using a refillable bottle might not seem heroic, but, as less than half of the 13 billion single-use plastic bottles sold in Britain each year are recycled, your actions can help make a huge difference.

Every minute, the equivalent of a rubbish truck load of plastic goes in to our oceans, it never decomposes and will remain there forever. If nothing changes, by 2050 all the plastic in the ocean could weigh more than all the fish. Plastic impacts on an entire ecosystem, marine life get caught up in it, eat it and live in it. It also has a direct impact on our health, acting as a sponge for toxins which can end up in our food. Big issues for our ocean health such as this affect us all. They’re also something we all have a role to play in- if we all work together, we can help to protect our oceans.
