WINNERS! How you reduce, reuse and recycle

This article is sponsored by Mojo Health

Each year Australians toss out some 50 million tonnes of garbage which ends up in one of 38 landfill sites in Australia. But Australians are increasingly changing their household habits to reduce our footprint on the environment. 

These days, 51 per cent of household waste is recycled in Australia. Our recycling rates exceed the average recycling rates of all 28 countries in the European Union, which stands at a 42 per cent average. Go Aussies!

Recently we partnered with Mojo Health and asked to see how you reduce, reuse and recycle in your home, workplace or school. 

We have five ZeroBoxes packed full of eco-friendly goodies from Mojo Health to give away.

The contents of a ZeroBox includes stainless steel straws, a bamboo toothbrush, eco-friendly greeting cards, a BPA-free drink bottle, an E-String bag and Apiwraps for storing food.
