Last week I posted a lovely review about How To Go Waste free. So it only seems to follow that to reduce that waste we should look at reducing how much plastic we use.
I have been reading another great book How To Go Plastic Free, about how you can reduce your plastic usage and in turn reduce your waste.
About How To Go Plastic Free
How to go Plastic Free looks at how plastic is harming our environment, and although we do know this. The book looks at ways that we can implement this into our daily lives. Starting with an introduction on how we can help in our daily lives.
Like How To Go Waste Free, the book offers 100 tips on how to exceed. By breaking it down and realising Rome was not built-in a day. Taking small steps you can start to reduce your plastic an in turn save your environment.
Below we look at a few of the sections of the book.
#3 Get Support – Look online for local forums and groups that offer help and information and where you can buy plastic free produce
#4 Start Campaigning – As well as changing at home, there are also various campaigns you can join
Eating and Drinking
#6 Switch To Reusable Shopping Bags – There are so many options now such as bag for life which are stronger than normal plastic bags. Or like me when doing a big shop I use trolley bags which come in two sizes depending on trolley size you use.
#7 Sell Back Old Plastic Bags – If you shop online sometimes you can not choose the option of no bags, but companies such as Ocado do deliver in plastic bags but also take away old plastic bags and will give you 5p each bag.
#16 Buy Non-Perishables In Bulk – buying non-perishables in bulk not only cuts down on packaging but also works out cheaper
#17 Try Larger Supermarkets – larger supermarkets often stock bigger quantities of products so buying items like grains or rice will reduce plastic packaging and saves on the bank balance as well
These are just a few snippets from the book which is full of great ideas on how you can do your bit and reduce your plastic use.
