Sustainability has come to the fore as we become more conscious of the impact human beings post on the environment. One of the biggest challenges is plastic pollution, with over 300 million tons of plastic produced each year, and they will end up in landfills and the ocean.
Plastic is impossible to get away from as almost everything we engage with in our day-to-day life is related to plastic, which then leads to over one million marine animals a year being killed by plastic waste. Therefore, it is our responsibility to reduce our plastic consumption and waste.
BRING YOUR OWN SHOPPING BAGS
Plastic bags are one of the biggest causes of plastic pollution. One of the most effective methods of reducing our plastic consumption is to bring reusable bags every time you go shopping, ensuring you never need to use another throwaway bag. Despite only be used for a few minutes to take our groceries from the shop to our homes, these bags can take hundreds of years to break down.
UTILIZE REUSABLE CONTAINERS
Preparing food using reusable containers not only helps to reduce waste plastic but also helps you minimize the risk of plastic toxins leaking into your food. Although eating on the go has become a common lunchtime solution for many of us in the hustle and bustle of modern life, it is not that hard to opt for a sustainable lunch option.
REDUCE THROWAWAY CUTLERY
Saying no to using a straw and utilizing eco-friendly cutlery can help you to significantly reduce your plastic consumption. From buying a drink on a night out to grabbing a snack from your favorite restaurant, have you considered how many times you use a straw or throwaway cutlery? Let’s start now to avoid getting through a vast amount of plastic that we do not need.
DROP THE PLASTIC BOTTLES
Five hundred billion plastic bottles are used every year, with the vast majority ending up being thrown away. Many people buy bottled mineral water due to its health benefits over standard tap water, but ditching those plastic bottles and filling your own reusable bottles with filtered water can help you enjoy all of the filtered benefits while reducing your plastic wastage in the process.
