Help Solve the Plastic Crisis + Giveaway!
The plastic Crisis has spread far and wide and therefore even though we are trying to ban plastic bags , there are other options we can use as a go-to as well. The problem is plastic bags are everywhere, especially places they shouldn’t be! This throws light on fact that the mass production of the plastic bag may end up being one of humanity’s biggest regrets.
A report by the World Economic Forum in 2016 stated that worldwide plastic use has risen 20-fold in the past 50 years. At this rate, it is predicted to double again in the next 20 years. By 2050, we will use three times as much plastic as we used in 2014. Compounded with the fact that plastic can take up to 1,000 years to decompose in landfills, it is possible the Earth and all of its life, including humans, will be drowning in plastic in the future. With that sullen news in mind here are a few tips I found that we can!
1. Carry reusable shopping bags
Carry whatever works for you. Some people like reusable canvas totes. Others prefer to put their purchases into a backpack or messenger bag.
2. Give up bottled water
Many brands of bottled water are simply filtered tap water. Get a reusable stainless steel bottle !
3. Check labels of personal care products!
Did you know some facial scrubs and other personal care products contain tiny plastic beads? Avoid anything with “polyethylene” listed as an ingredient.
4. Give up shampoo in plastic bottles.
There are several plastic-free options! Check out my organic beauty product articles for more examples!
5. Carry lunches in reusable stainless containers or cloth bags. Choose glass or stainless steel food storage containers and reuse what you already have.
We save nearly all glass jars and bottles for purchasing bulk foods and for storing leftovers in the refrigerator or even the freezer reusable or biodegradable cutlery for everyday lunch meals, takeaways, etc. has become the new norm and more and more people are getting conscious of this.
We have missed out on main element, which is a high-ranking waste the party cup. From frat parties to social evenings, to kid’s birthday parties the plastic cup has been a big contribution to plastic waste.
