In many everyday situations, we do not need plastic at all. In other cases, we can just reduce its consumption.
Here are some of the simplest ways to eliminate plastic from your life:
Use a reusable bag
This is a basic and simple thing that can reduce the use of plastic bags by up to several dozen pieces per month!
Buy fruit and vegetables in bulk
Producers are packaging fruit and vegetables in plastic containers or plastic bags. To eliminate this incomprehensible procedure! Always choose only those fruits and vegetables that are “loose” and pack them to your reusable bag.
Replace shower gel with soap
Choose bar soap and cardboard packaging instead of unnecessary plastic.
Drink water from a reusable bottle
This way we will have our own healthy and clean water. We will not only help the environment but also save a lot of money! Forget also about carrying heavy water bottles from the store.
Give up the straw
When ordering a drink, inform the bartender or waiter that you are not using a straw.
Don’t use disposable cutlery
Choose a wooden one instead of a plastic cutlery. It won’t break and will last longer.
Replace your toothbrush
Instead of a traditional plastic toothbrush, choose a bamboo one.
Save garbage bags
Try to make full use of the garbage bag and only replace it when it is really full.
