How You Can Reduce the Amount of Plastic You Use.

Using plastic, and more specifically single-use plastic, products are terrible for the environment. Even though plastic can be recycled, a lot of energy is required for this process which can have a negative impact on the environment. Going plastic-free is an excellent decision to make to ensure that our earth is beautiful for generations to come. So, how can you, as a consumer reduce the amount of plastic you use? The easiest way to do this is to drastically reduce (or even eliminate) the use of single-use plastic products, such as straws, bottles, plastic bags and more.

Then, it would be a good idea to have a look at the other products you use on a daily basis and see if you can find a more environmentally friendly alternative. For example, if you use a plastic toothbrush, consider swapping this for a more eco-friendly toothbrush, such as a bamboo toothbrush. You could also think about using toothpaste tablets instead of a regular tube of toothpaste because there is no tube to discard and you will not be wasting toothpaste. Using a stainless steel or glass water bottle is another easy way to go plastic-free. After using your bottle, simply wash it and it is ready to use for tomorrow.

Many folks have chosen to use their own eco-friendly and reusable shopping bags instead of the single-use plastic ones available at the supermarket. This is a great idea as you will be playing a vital role in reducing your plastic consumption if you consider how many plastic shopping bags you use every year! Finally, if you have children, it is a wise decision to teach them how to be environmentally conscious as well. They will, in turn, teach their own children one day and we will become a better-informed human race!
