3 Ways to Eliminate Plastic
- Reusable Snack Bags
Whether Ziplock, Glad, or grocery store brand it doesn't matter. Sandwich bags or freezer bags are harmful to our planet. It takes 50 years for one to decompose, 50 years! Imagine how many you use in a day let alone a lifetime. Luckily, we now have companies that have a reusable bag option! They make really cute designs too so you can switch it up, which is way cooler than a plain clear see through bag anyways!
- Reusable Grocery Bags
This is an easy one, use a reusable grocery bag. Now a days more and more states are charging for the use of plastic bags leaving the grocery store. If you leave the country, they don't even give them out! If you are forgetful like me, keep them in your car so whenever you head to the grocery store they are ready to go! Once you unload the groceries put those bags right back in the car so you don't forget!
- Reusable Straws
This may be the obvious one coming from me, but for real use your own straw! No need to use plastic any more. Especially now that restaurants are conforming to the use of paper straws, metal straws are definitely the way to go. Paper straws leave a bad taste in your mouth where the metal straws keep your drink nice and cool the entire time!
