Have you seen the photos of beaches riddled with plastic? Or the islands of plastic in the middle of the ocean? Have you heard of the stories of poor marine animals getting caught in plastic and drowning? If you have half a heart, the thought of that pains you.
I have become increasingly conscious of my use of plastic but there is always something new to learn and new tips as to how to reduce its use. In this article, the authors have distilled long lists down to the top 5 tips.
- Ditch one time use water bottles
- Buy a pack of re-useable produce bags
- Ditch one time use straws
- Ditch one time use styrofoam coffee cups
- Re-use plastic product packaging
There are great tips. Pass them on!
I cringe every time I see styrofoam and plastic water bottles, but the straws are a great tip. I hadn’t really noticed that as a great source of plastic pollution. Thanks for bringing that to my attention!
