You understand well enough that vinyl is among the primary sources of contamination on our beautiful world. Embarking on a quest to reduce the amount of plastic waste should be on top of your list of priorities if you ever wish to pursue the eco-friendly means of living. Instead of putting up with the waste removal of what often feels like heaps of plastic, you should look into alternatives for this everyday material, which takes many shapes and forms. There are healthier choices, which you may do well to consider:
A thin film of plastic is enough to deter your good intentions. Some also come with a polystyrene tray to further burden the environment once the inevitable moment comes and you will need to dispose of everything but the food. Stop buying this and instead turn your sights to fresh produce instead. Pay more attention to the local farmer’s market.
Most teabags in the UK include a thin layer of polypropylene plastic, which eventually ends up leaking into the soil once teabags end up in a landfill. That’s just one reason you should substitute teabags with loose tea. Another one is the fact that it just tastes way better.
Plastic straws – if you’re looking to cull plastic things from your life, begin with the most useless one anyway – plastic straws. Drinking from glass or some other container with no straw changes nothing about the taste qualities of the beverage itself, so make certain to say no to a plastic straw offering.
Reuse your laundry bottle – if you have used the last drop of your laundry detergent, don’t be quick to dispose of the bottle. A lot of stores offer the opportunity to refill an empty bottle without needing to have a new one. It often comes out cheaper too.
Toothbrushes – traditionally, toothbrushes feature plastic fittings, which is somewhat gruesome. But you can replace your brush with one made of bamboo to leave the bristles as the sole plastic component in there,
Cotton buds – cotton buds aren’t only bad for the environment; they are also bad for your health. It has been proven again and again that cleaning your ears together poses serious health risks and does nothing to alleviate you from ear wax. If you’re using them just for other cleaning purposes, you need to replace with degradable card sticks.
Coffee cups – java movies have a plastic film on the inside, which makes them hard to recycle. This is so easy to fix: bring your disposable coffee cup and use just that to receive your morning dose of this empowering drink.
There are quite a lot of everyday plastic items you can replace with more environmentally friendly alternatives. It’s up to you to do so and ease the waste removal process.
