The amount of plastic pollution in our oceans and landfills is enough to make me want to change the way I think about what I buy (and throw away). Here are seven easy ways you can greatly reduce the amount of plastic waste in our world.
1. Reusable bags –Holyluck
These are easy to carry with you so you can always say no to plastic store bags.
2. Reusable water bottles –Healthy Human
STOP BUYING BOTTLED WATER!
3. Just Say No! To straws –SipWell
Stainless steel straws are easy to carry with you and actually keep your drinks colder.
4. Shampoo/Conditioner bars
Check out Lush. Their shampoo and conditioner bars are amazing. Grab one of their bath bombs while you’re at it. You won’t be disappointed.
5. Reusable Utensils –Bamboo Essentials
Carry your own. Wash them. Put them back in your bag.
6. Bar soap
Let’s go back to the 80’s when we had bar soap that came in a cardboard box. It’s retro.
7. Bamboo Toothbrushes –Isshah
You won’t even notice a difference, but the earth will 🙂
Now, Go. See. Do.
