How to reduce plastic waste with easy, everyday changesPosted on December 13, 2017 by DrRossH in Plastic Straws
There are little changes you can constantly make in your life that will keep your plastic waste down.
Helping the environment requires us to be hyper aware of the waste we are creating and to be cautious of how much non-biodegradable plastic we are using and abusing. This does not just count when it comes to plastic bags in the supermarket but with all plastic you use in your life.
Bottled water can be a sin when it comes to plastic waste, unless there is some contamination crisis that will require you to drink bottled water, you should give it up. A better idea is to buy a reusable bottle filled with tap water, you can still carry it around and you are no longer contributing to the landfills of empty water bottles.
A plastics tax is one method that would have a wide spread level of effectiveness. Maybe the most effective.
