How to Use Less Plastic

by | Mar 28, 2022

There are loads of easy ways you can seriously reduce the amount of plastic you use. They may seem small, but these changes make a huge difference if everyone joins in!

‘We don’t need a handful of people doing zero waste perfectly. We need millions of people doing it imperfectly.’ Anne Marie Bonneau

Whether its coffee, tea or water, try not to purchase plastic containers. Bring a water bottle with you when you go out, so you won’t have to buy a plastic one on the go. Get a keep cup! While most coffee cups are paper, usually the lids are plastic. Coffee shops will gladly put your tea or coffee in your keep cup instead, some even offer a small discount for doing so! And of course.. no plastic straws!

Speaking of coffee, if you aren’t a dairy person, avoid almond milk. There is an incredible amount of water used to make almond milk, and its’ production is not good for the planet. Try oat milk instead!

Tote bags are KEY. Use them as shopping bags! Keep one in your handbag (they’re small so they’ll fit!), so if you’re out and about and realise you need to get a few bits, you won’t have to buy a plastic bag.

Every little helps!
