Hello and welcome to Wilfred Eco, an Australian small business trying to make a small difference in a big world.
At Wilfred Eco we create and range beautiful, non-toxic, reusable and eco-friendly products for people who seek to make a difference and support sustainable living.
Plastic is a huge 'human made' problem which has a significant negative effect on the environment.
Some fast facts to get you thinking:
- Every piece of plastic that was ever made still exists today and it takes around 450 years for a plastic bottle to biodegrade.*
- Each year it is estimated that 13 billion plastic bottles are disposed of, with an estimated 500 million plastic straws being used each day.*
- It is predicted by the year 2050 there will be more plastic in the ocean (by weight) than fish*...how scary!
So many single use plastic items are being banned across Australia, and families need to find alternatives. This is where we seek to help!
With this in mind at Wilfred Eco we work to design and produce eco-friendly products for Australian families and homes. We started with drinking straws and glass bottles and will continue to expand our range to help you make great choices for your family and the environment.
We can all make small changes that can have a big impact on our environment and planet. It sounds like a cliché but it is true.
