You understand well enough that vinyl is among the chief sources of pollution on our beautiful planet. Rather than putting up with the waste removal of what often feels like heaps of plastic, you should look into alternatives to this regular material, which takes many shapes and forms. There are healthier choices, which you will do well to consider:
A thin film of plastic is sufficient to deter your good intentions. Some also come with a polystyrene tray to additional burden the environment once the inevitable moment comes and you need to dispose of everything but the food. Stop buying this and instead turn your sights to fresh produce instead. Pay more attention to your community farmer’s market.
Most teabags in the UK come with 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 substitute teabags with loose tea. Another one is the fact that it just tastes way better.
Plastic straws – if you’re seeking to cull plastic things from your life, start with the most useless one anyhow – plastic straws. Drinking from glass or some other container without a straw changes nothing about the taste qualities of the drink itself, so make certain to say no to a plastic sheeting offering.
Reuse your laundry jar – if you have used the last drop of your laundry detergent, do not be quick to dispose of the bottle. A lot of stores offer the chance to refill an empty bottle without the need to have a new one. It often comes out cheaper too.
Toothbrushes – traditionally, toothbrushes feature plastic bristles, which is somewhat gruesome. However, you can replace your brush with one made from bamboo to leave the bristles as the only plastic component in there,
Cotton buds – cotton buds aren’t only bad for the environment; they’re also bad for your wellbeing. It has 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’re using them only for other cleaning purposes, you need to replace degradable card sticks.
Coffee cups – coffee movies have a plastic film on the inside, which makes them difficult to recycle. This is so simple to fix: bring your disposable coffee cup and use just that to get your morning dose of this empowering drink.
There are quite a lot of everyday plastic items you can replace with more environmentally-friendly alternatives. It’s your choice to do so and ease the waste removal process.
