Did you know that plastic products are made from non-renewable fossil fuels? And that they can take up to 1000 years to break down? Once they breakdown, they still don’t go away. They simply turn into micro-plastics which then find their way into our water systems and soil.

This means that your single-use shopping bag, your single-use sandwich bag and your plastic toothbrush will outlive you.

Ready to cut down the single use plastics in your life?

10 ways to reduce plastic:

  1. Carry a reusable straw with you
  2. Carry a set of reusable cutlery with you
  3. Bring your own shopping bag with you to the grocery store
  4. Shop at bulk stores using your own refillable container
  5. Use a reusable produce bag rather than the plastic ones provided at grocery stores
  6. Switch from a plastic toothbrush to a bamboo toothbrush
  7. Bring your own reusable mug/water bottle with you
  8. DIY! Make your own household products or get your household product containers refilled
  9. Start using a shampoo bar rather than a bottle of shampoo (and soap bars rather than body wash)
  10. Switch to reusable sandwich bags and beeswax wrap from plastic bags and plastic wrap
