5 easy tips to reduce your daily plastic use

Single-use plastic is one of the most significant environmental issues facing us today. It’s time to say no to single-use plastic items. We are having a substantial impact on the Earth, and we want to empower you to convert this into a positive impact!

Carry your own shopping bag.

This is one of the most straightforward tips to start reducing your daily plastic use. Take a bag to the grocery, supermarkets or any other places where you will be given a plastic bag. We recommend that you always carry a cloth bag with you in your purse or backpack.

Bring your reusable bottle.

Humans buy about 1,000,000 plastic bottles per minute every day. Drinking out of a reusable water bottle instead of a plastic bottle has a positive impact on our planet, as plastic bottles are the most common items we can find on the beach. You can get the Closca Bottle, made of borosilicate glass to respect the purity of the water and use the tea infuser accessory to be more creative with your drinks. This is the first bottle ever to latch onto your backpack or purse, so you wear it, not carry it.

Use plastic-free containers.

You can get naked products, such as nuts, pulses or grains, and store them in glass or metal jars. If you already have “good plastic” containers, you can recycle them to store some little things. When you go to a restaurant to order a takeaway or to get your cup of coffee, present the staff your reusable container and start doing little significant changes!

Plastic cutlery is no longer fantastic.

If you are going out, get your cutlery or reuse the plastic cutlery you were once given. It’s thought that before throwing away the single-use plastic cutlery, we use it for only 3 minutes. 

Say no to plastic straws.

Plastic straws and stirrers can take up to 200 years to decompose, so please, think twice before asking for one, you don’t probably need one! There are lots of possibilities, such as paper, bamboo, or eatable straws.
