Not many of us are ready to compromise on areas of our life made more convenient by plastic. I get it. I'm no superhero either. But, there are a few things we can do which will make a difference and won't inconvenience us. Win win.
Here are 5 things you can do, easy peasy.
1. Plastic straws...say, no straw please when ordering a drink in a restaurant. If you're like me, you'll mean to do it and forget until the server is walking away. After a few visits though, it'll become a habit. If you buy straws for home, buy paper. If they are individually wrapped, look for ones wrapped in paper, not plastic!
3 Replace those plastic toothbrushes that aren't biodegradable with bamboo, a natural alternative!
5. Swap out your plastic throwaway k-cups for the reusable k-cups. 10 seconds to rinse it out. You can feel virtuous all day for not throwing away plastic.
I hope you find some inspiration in these tips. Some or all may fit very seamlessly into your lifestyle. If you have other tips I'd love to hear them!
In addition to trying to do my bit, I spend my days in my studio. You can view my artwork here.
