1. Disneyland is going straw-free worldwide
The company aims to eliminate single-use plastic straws and stirrers at all of its locations across the globe by mid-2019 (except for Tokyo Disneyland). This means that over 175 million straws and 13 million stirrers are reduced annually. This is one step in Disney’s efforts to go green, we are excited to see what’s next.

2. Environmentalism, some kid-friendly fun
With a set-up that turns a kid’s room into a makeshift Amazon jungle, IKEA is making every animal-loving kid’s dream come true. IKEA Australia just launched a kid’s collection that is inspired by endangered animal species that carry the message of sustainability. Think adorable cuddly toys, jungle-inspired furniture and beautiful exotic prints. These items are also made with eco-friendly and sustainably sourced materials which also reduces the amount of water you need to wash them.
3. Sustainability’s made it to ELLE
With a fashion spread in ELLE UK, sustainable fashion is all the rage. This issue raises the awareness of making meaningful change in the way the industry should produce and the way that consumers shop. In this groundbreaking, wardrobe-shattering issue, ELLE did a little research to find out the attitudes of young UK-based women have about sustainability in fashion. Incredibly eye-opening.
4. Go green this festive season with your very own eco-friendly Ganesha
An annual celebration, the Ganesh Chaturthi celebrations involve the immersion of Ganesha idols into natural water bodies like the sea, rivers, lakes and ponds. Conventionally, many of these idols are made from non-biodegradable and toxic chemical colours. However, there has been a change. We now see the rise of these idols being made with biodegradable materials in the most innovative ways for devotees to celebrate the festival in a friendlier manner.
5. Dog poops can be ‘green’ too!
I’m not talking about the colour of the poop. As you walk your dog, you must always be armed with a plastic bag to catch the stinky poop before someone steps on it. Now, the invention of biodegradable dog poop bags can make your walks that little bit more green.
