Ways To Avoid Plastic Waste When Going Out
The best way to reduce the amount of plastic waste entering our oceans is to simply cut it off at the source and reduce the amount that is used in the first place. Although recycling can help reduce the amount of garbage that ends up in landfills, waterways and ecosystems, only a few types of plastics can be recycled by most municipal governments.
But in our modern lives, plastic surrounds us and cutting it out can seem daunting. To make going out easy, here’s a checklist you’ll want to bring with you to avoid single-use plastics:
✅A reusable tote bag to avoid single-use plastic baggies when shopping
✅A reusable bottle to keep you hydrated and to refill at local cafes.
✅ A reusable food bag for packing snacks or leftovers from restaurants.
✅ A reusable or compostable cutlery set.
✅ A reusable silicone straw perfect for thick liquids like smoothies, teas and more.
Making changes to the things we do, the products we use (and throw away), the food we eat, and encouraging others to join us can have a big impact. We can all do our part to help keep our forests breathtaking, our oceans beautiful, and our lakes and rivers pristine.
At The EcoFairy, our goal is to help you build a more sustainable life by offering you a line of reusable products. We offer products that last and that will help you reduce the amount of plastic you use.
