That’s awkward! Instagram model SLAMS beauty brands for sending her free gifts wrapped in an ‘upsetting’ amount of packaging… but drinks from a plastic straw just hours later
Australian Instagram model Jadé Tuncdoruk has publicly slammed companies that send her free products wrapped in a ‘ridiculous’ amount of packaging.
The social media influencer said on Thursday that she has to throw out an ‘upsetting’ amount of plastic every week due to the sheer volume of gifts she receives.
But just hours after preaching this eco-friendly message on Instagram, she appeared to contradict herself by sipping a cocktail through a plastic straw.

Jadé’s original post read: ‘Can brands and PR companies start taking more initiative with the send outs? The amount of plastic I have to throw out weekly is ridiculous.
‘If you need to fill a box or package to stop something from being damaged, use recycled materials. It’s just becoming upsetting.’
But just a few hours later, Jadé uploaded a video of herself drinking through a see-through plastic straw at an event.
She explained that she was using a straw because she had ‘red lipstick on’, adding: ‘I’m sure a lot of people can relate to how messy that can be’.

Jadé works full-time as an ‘influencer’, generating her income through Instagram posts paid for by brands and PR agencies.
Plastic straws have been banned from numerous venues in Sydney, from Opera Bar to the Grill’d burger chain, due to not being environmentally friendly.
Jadé previously made headlines when she told her followers not to complain about the fact she shares so many sponsored posts over Christmas.

She told them to expect more advertising content over the festive season because being an influencer is a ‘full-time job’.
‘It’s a very busy time of the year for our industry,’ she said in a video uploaded in December 2018.
‘I want to remind you guys that it is my full-time job, so if I wasn’t posting sponsored content I wouldn’t be able to post other content and then you guys wouldn’t see much of me at all.’
