Cutting down your need for single-use plastics in 3 easy steps
Updated: Apr 3, 2019
Happy Earth Day to You's 3 current products all are reusable and sustainable alternatives to single-use plastics. About one million plastic bags are used each minute throughout the world. About 46,000 pieces of plastic are in every square mile of ocean. A garbage truck size load of plastic is dumped into the ocean every minute. The plague of plastic is real and halting its spread is not as hard as it may seem.
3 single-use plastic products that are very common are plastic straws, grocery bags, and snack bags. By swapping flimsy and harmful plastic straws with reusable metal straws, endurable and wasteful plastic grocery bags with strong and sustainable mesh bags, and impractical single-use plastic snack bags with natural, reusable beeswax wraps, it's easy to make a difference on a personal level.
