So how do we start to use less plastic?
We’re not in the business of perfection here; it’s more about reduction.
Assessing areas where you can reduce or even eliminate single-use plastic. This could include reusables like coffee cups, water bottles, and grocery bags. You might be ready to take it a bit further with package-free cleaning products or even food.
And remember, going plastic-free or low waste won’t happen overnight – it’s a process.
It takes time and a little effort, so don’t be too hard on yourself. Instead, do your best with what you have available to you and in the process, you might inspire the people around you to walk a little lighter on the planet as well.
“We don’t need a handful of people doing zero waste perfectly. We need millions of people doing it imperfectly.” – Anne-Marie Bonneau, Zero Waste Chef
I always say use what you have, but when you need supplies, these are my picks for online stores to shop for reusables, food, and beauty to help you go plastic-free.
