4 tips to live with less plastic
1. Stop using plastic straws
One of the simplest ways to reduce plastic waste is to stop using plastic straws. All you have to do is stop purchasing them and ask for no straw when ordering drinks when you are at a bar or restaurant. You can also purchase a reusable straw to enjoy drinks at home or carry with you.
2. Carry a reusable produce bag
A simple way to avoid contributing to plastic waste is by bringing your own reusable bag when shopping. This will decrease the plastic waste that comes with disposable shopping bags (And the environment will thank you!)
3. Use bar soap
Bar soaps usually come without plastic packaging, and they’re just as good as liquid soap!
4. Bring your own coffee mug
If it’s part of your routine to pop into your nearest coffee shop for a to-go coffee, I urge you to bring a cup from home. That way you can avoid using the single-use coffee cups they offer at coffee shops. There are tons of to-go coffee mugs available for purchase online.
Tip: Check out our reusable biodegradable bamboo travel mug. It’s environmentally friendly, dishwasher safe (which is always a plus!) and has a gorgeous vintage yet simple design.
Now, there are a lot more things you can do to reduce plastic waste. These were just a few of the easiest tips and tricks to help you make a small difference in your life.
Once you’ve taken a few baby steps you will find it easier to eliminate more and more plastic waste from life.
