Environmental Myths

Australians are not ‘the most wasteful people on the planet’

Waste data not comparable – Australians produce more garden waste because of our fondness of ¼ acre block/climate

A ‘throw away society’ not necessarily bad

Single use products often have lower impact than multiple use.  Newer models of durable product can have lower impact – making disposal of older models beneficial

‘Recyclable’ does not mean ‘low environmental impact’

E.g. Aluminium cans recycled 100% have a higher impact than like plastic or paper based packaging (Tellus study)
