5 Ways to Kick Plastic, Save Money and Feel Better
Plastic Tides / 2-22-2021
DRINK MORE WATERFree access to clean drinking water should be valued as a human right in developed societies. This means drinking fountains and bottle filling stations in more and more public places, and strict standards for the quality of that water. The best way to support this type of future is by living it - bring a water bottle wherever you go. We suggest one lined with ceramic to stay clean longer. If you’re on the go, look for refillable options like Pathwater at your local convenience or grocery store.
Pro Tip: Bring your reusable coffee mug on trips or to the coffee shop to save $ and the planet. (Disclaimer: May not be accepted during COVID-19 Pandemic as an added safety measure)
SKIP THE STRAWNo straw please. Do without or if you like having something to sip through, use a glass, bamboo, hay, metal or other type of reusable straw. Always remember to say “No straw please” when ordering drinks. If you can’t go anywhere without your straw check out a collapsible keychain version like one from Final Straw.
SHOP WITH REUSABLE BAGS100,000 marine mammals are killed by plastic bags each year. Switch to reusable to reduce your overall waste and keep sealife from harm. Plus with bag fees growing in popularity, you’ll often save a quarter!
CHOOSE SEASONAL AND LOCALAvoid prepackaged food by signing up for a CSA or checking out farmers markets near you. You can also look out for what’s in season at your local grocery store and pick unpackaged fruit and vegetables when possible.
VOTE WITH YOUR DOLLAR FOR THE FUTURE YOU BELIEVEAs a conscious consumer, the simplest way to make a positive impact on a daily basis is to put your money where your mouth is by supporting sustainable brands and products. Each time we buy something we’re sending a message to make more of it. Everyone faces financial constraints, and we can’t always make our preferred choice, but sometimes we can, and that’s what counts.
