Life With Plastic Is Not Fantastic!

You may think a plastic world is fantastic, brought to you by the Barbie Girl’s song but it’s not! Plastic is on the verge of destroying the world as we know it. Plastic is not degradable so it will still be on the earth even after most of us who used won’t. Plastic is damaging our wildlife and our food chain. It is most harmful to our environment. So here are 10 ways you can reduce your use of plastic, and soon eliminate it from your life.

  1. Bring your own reusable bags to the grocery store as well as the shopping centre to avoid their plastic bags.
  2. Make your own cloth bags to avoid the use of ziplock bags. Here’s a really good tutorial, thediymommy.com/sew-a-diy-reusable-snack-bag/ 
  3. Instead of plastic water bottles, invest in some glass water bottles or stainless steel.
  4. Use refillable containers for shampoo and conditioner.
  5. Bring your own glass containers and buy in bulk at places like Bulk Barn.
  6. Instead of using plastic wrap, use tinfoil to cover your food and left overs.
