Use Less Plastic in Your Home
There's no question there are excellent plastic products that have done a lot to improve human lives. Items such as car seats, helmets, and medical plastics (just to name a few) are important items that not only enhance but save lives. These are not the plastics that have people concerned.
Those that are created for convenience and financial sake only. In fact, products such as plastic utensils are often created to be used once and then tossed into the garbage. These are the daily plastics which are completely unnecessary otherwise.
What exactly does it mean to throw something “away”? First, “away” isn't in a land far, far away. It’s somewhere in our environment where we live, eat, sleep, and play. Every day, garbage is shoved into giant holes called landfills – right here on planet Earth.
Recycling is second to simply reducing the amount of plastic that you bring into your home in the first place. This is because recycling plastic isn’t done with the wave of a wand.
Emissions are a major part of this system, so recycling centers are huge air polluters. While recycling remains a slightly better option than the landfill, clearly, it’s not the ultimate solution. A better option revolves around the plastic supply-and-demand system. It’s simple: lessen the demand for daily plastics by using as little of it as possible. Less demand, less created.
