July marks the return of the #PlasticFree challenge and if you’d like to be part of the solution to reduce plastic waste then make a quick trip to ReThink, the green store in Yeronga.
ReThink has a good selection of plastic-free, often used and consumable household items to stock up on, such as shampoo and conditioner, deodorant, hand wash, body lotion, laundry and dishwashing liquids, cleansing pads, toilet paper and even dog shampoo. If you want to lessen your use of plastic, then this store can help you make small but significant changes.
Products sold at ReThink are locally sourced and either unpacked for zero waste, or contained in reusable glass, which you can return to the store for recycling. The staff also provide valuable information and education for consumers who want to manage their waste more sustainably and better for the environment.
When you patronise ReThink, you’re not just helping local businesses thrive but you’re also supporting its workers. The store employs people with disabilities who make their place of work their social hub as well.
Founded by Dr Megan Ashcroft as a not-for-profit, volunteer-led social venture, ReThink opened in April 2019 and functions in collaboration with Community Plus Queensland.
