“From injuring marine life to disrupting human hormones, plastic pollution is having a devastating impact. The good news is we can solve this problem. Citizens can play an activist role in demanding that corporations and governments take actions to end plastic pollution.”

– Kathleen Rogers, President of Earth Day Network

Earth Day 2018 is a global campaign to change attitudes and behaviours that contribute to reducing plastic pollution within our oceans.

Rooland is a strong advocate for protecting our beautiful marine life from the perils of plastic waste. So much so that founder Suzanne Haddon not only incorporates eco practices into the overall business philosophy, but continues a day-today commitment outside of business hours. Her morning ritual is to collect, document and recycle rubbish she finds at local beaches in the Illawarra.

Become inspired and show your commitment to Earth Day this Sunday (April 22nd) with these amazing solutions to avoid single-use plastic.

Evoware:

‘[w]e want to create a cleaner world by stopping plastic at the root’ – David Christian

Similar to Suzanne’s business vision, David Christian (co-founder of Evoware) was determined to create eco-solutions for plastic waste problems. He could not live with the fact that his home country in Indonesia was the second biggest contributor of plastic pollution in the world.

With this as his core mission, Evoware was created as a replacement to plastic packaging, made from seaweed – and yes, you can eat it.
