You understand well enough that plastic is one of the primary sources of Squirrel Poop on our beautiful planet. Instead of putting up with the waste removal of what often feels just like heaps of plastic, you should look into alternatives for this everyday substance, which takes many shapes and forms. There are healthier choices, which you will do well to consider:
Plastic-wrapped create – buying organic food to eat healthily and do the world well means nothing if the food bearing that label comes in plastic wrap. Even a thin film of plastic is sufficient to deter your good intentions. Some also include a polystyrene tray to further burden the environment once the inevitable moment comes and you need to eliminate everything but the food. Pay more attention to the local farmer’s market.
Most teabags from the UK include a thin layer of polypropylene plastic, which eventually ends up leaking into the soil once teabags end up in a landfill. That is only one reason you should replace teabags with loose tea. Another one is the fact that it just tastes far better.
Plastic straws – if you are seeking to cull plastic things from your life, start with the most useless one anyhow – plastic straws. Drinking from glass or any other container with no straw changes nothing about the taste qualities of the drink itself, so be sure to say no to a plastic sheeting offering.
Reuse your laundry bottle – if you’ve used the last drop of your laundry detergent, don’t be quick to dispose of the bottle. A lot of stores offer the opportunity to refill an empty bottle without the need to get a new one. It often comes out cheaper too.
Toothbrushes – traditionally, toothbrushes feature plastic fittings, which is somewhat gruesome. However, you can replace your brush with one made from bamboo to leave the bristles as the sole plastic part in there,
Cotton buds – cotton buds are not just bad for the environment; they’re also bad for your health. It’s been proven again and again that cleaning your ears together poses serious health risks and does nothing to relieve you from ear wax. If you are using them just for other cleaning purposes, you should replace degradable card sticks.
Coffee cups – java movies have a plastic film on the inside, which makes them hard to recycle. This is so easy to fix: bring your disposable coffee cup and use just that to receive your morning dose of the empowering drink.
There are quite a lot of routine plastic items you can replace with more environmentally friendly alternatives. It is your choice to do so and ease the waste removal process.
