An average American uses around 100 kgs of plastic every year. As we know, plastic contributes massively to land and water pollution. Hence, switching to non-plastic reusable products can positively impact the environment.
Let’s look at some of the common, easily available plastic alternatives we can use daily.
It is time to ditch plastic bags. Pick up reusable bags from the nearest grocery store. These are great for carrying your groceries and can be used repeatedly for years. Nowadays, you can easily find tote bags from anywhere. Just remember to bring them along whenever you go shopping.
If you choose a reusable stainless-steel straw, you can take a sigh of relief knowing that you’re not a threat to sea turtles. And if you get some reusable stainless-steel bottles, they can double as a storage container if needed.
Reusable mugs and glasses
We have become so dependent on single-use plastic glasses that we don’t even realize the plastic waste we produce every day. For your morning cup of coffee, get a permanent reusable mug. When it’s time for a drink, get yourself a straw bottle or a trendy glass bottle.
Reusable food containers
You surely have plastic Tupperware or other disposable food containers in your kitchen. Replace them with reusable food storage containers available in stainless steel, glass, or ceramic. These can be purchased online or from your local department store.
Reusable dish brushes
Reusable dish brushes are a perfect alternative to plastic sponges. If you want to spare the environment, look for a scrubber made of natural bamboo or an organic sponge made of organic cotton with no synthetic chemical additives. These don’t shed and are BPA-free, so they are perfect for your family’s use.
