4 Easy Ways to Kick Plastic Today
- Shop with reusable bags
Every year 100,000 marine animals are killed by plastic bags. Switch to reusable bags and save the pollution and animals. Reusable bags are much stronger and easier to carry as well.
- Ditch bottled water
Every year in the U.S alone, 35 billion plastic water bottles are thrown away and end up in landfills or our oceans. Besides this being environmentally destructive, it’s harmful to your health. Bisphenol A (BPA) and other toxins can be released from the plastic into the water. Do yourself and (everyone else) a solid and pick up a refillable water purifier for your home and a reusable water bottle to take with you wherever you go.
- Switch to reusable straws
Based on the American national average, people between the ages of five and sixty five used approximately 38,000 single plastic straws. Start now, and save all those plastic straws from polluting our planet and water. Find yourself a metal, bamboo, glass, wood or wheat straw. We will even hook you up - just ask.
- Shop for groceries locally
Find yourself a local farmers market, shop local and organic. This is better for your health, your wallet and your community. Shopping local also prevents all the additional plastic prepackaging that is commonplace in large supermarkets.
