It’s an exciting time for the environment as both Canada and the EU have set the date for banning and reducing single use plastic. While the US isn’t there yet many of the brands and products we use are the same meaning that we will also benefit from these green changes. Here is how you can reduce your plastic usage.
Complete The Mini Plastic Changes
Reusable water bottles, or reusable or degradable shopping bags, straws and travel cutlery are all little changes you can continue to make to reduce your personal plastic usage. It might not feel like much but every little bit adds up.
Plastic Is Required For Some Products
Where most of us get stuck is in products that almost only come in plastic—shampoo, conditioner, bodywash, laundry detergent, dish soap, skincare and beauty products. With these, buy in bulk, purchase refills, and shop brands that utilize fully or partially recycled plastics.
