What else can I do to reduce plastic pollution?

You can reduce your plastic use in many other ways:

  • Buy produce fresh food without plastic packaging
  • Use nylon or string bags to hold your produce purchases rather than plastic produce bags
  • Buy in bulk when you can and bring your own containers
  • If you eat out and expect to need a 'doggie bag', bring your own containers to put your unfinished meals in

The more of these habits you learn, the more ways you'll find to keep reducing single-use plastics from your life! The planet will thank you!
