You know that using less plastic makes the planet happier and healthier. But trying to change all your habits at once can be overwhelming—especially when you try to do it alone. That's why we found 5 EASY HABITS TO REDUCE YOUR PLASTIC WASTE
Your environmental guide to taking steps you already do every day. We've simplified it into an easy-to-use guide that shows exactly how you can reduce your plastic use, easily and automatically—without skipping a beat! Check out those easy 5 habits:
1.Stop using single-use plastic bags when shopping
Bringing your own reusable shopping bags when you go to the grocery is a great way to reduce the amount of single-use plastic bags in circulation.
2.Stop using plastic water bottles
Isn't it time to stop using plastic water bottles? It is not only our responsibility to be good stewards of the environment, but it's also extremely practical. You will save money and reduce the millions of pounds of plastic that end up in our landfills each year. Drinking water from reusable bottles is not only better for you, the enviro-conscious consumer, it's also better for our environment.
3.Say no to plastic straws
To anyone who's ever sipped a refreshing drink on a hot day, the phrase "No straw please" will never be more than an irritating afterthought. However, in a shocking twist of irony, the actual process for making those environmentally unfriendly plastic accessories is anything but boring. Still, you can do your part to save yourself from digesting plastic and protect our oceans from pollution by seeking out eco-friendly alternatives.
4.Bring your own thermos to the coffee shop
You might not think of your coffee shop’s paper cups as plastic, but they are. In fact, their polyethylene lining is potentially even worse for the environment because it’s non-biodegradable. So next time you go to the coffee shop, take your own thermos instead.
5.Re-think your food storage
It's time to wise up and throw out the plastic. We all love our convenient, portable food storage containers—but they come with a hidden price tag: the mountain of plastic that litters our planet. We can do better than that. Why not pack a bento box or Mason jar for lunch?
