It wasn't until Lottie Dalziel tried to drastically reduce her waste as part of her New Year's resolution in 2018 that she realised how hard it was not only to find environmentally-friendly products but also find credible information around waste.
In 2014-15 Australia produced approximately 64 million tonnes of waste, which is equivalent to 2.7 tonnes of waste per person*. As a country, we rank 5th highest in generating the most municipal waste in the world but are the 55th largest country... it just doesn't add up.
Banish was born in a bid to help Australians reduce their waste with the right products and even better information.
Our aim at Banish is to give Australians all of the tools they need to reduce their waste and ecological footprint.
All of the products that are stocked on Banish must adhere to a strict set of guidelines. These include being palm oil free, paraben-free, responsibly made and are not tested on animals as well as not including any of the ingredients listed on the Banish sin bin.
At Banish all orders are shipped with no plastic packaging whatsoever, that means no bubble-wrap, plastic post satchels or sticky-tape!
