Practical & easy ways to reduce plastic pollution:
Swap plastic straws with reusable steel – 8 million tonnes of plastic is dumped into our oceans. We’ve seen horrifying videos of how it impacts wild-life. Seabirds, animal autopsies reveal stomachs full of coloured plastic. Stainless steel reusable straws will be a blessing.
Bamboo tooth-brushes – 1 billion plastic tooth-brushes are thrown each year in the US. 22 million kgs annually. Eco-friendly bamboo brushes will save animal lives.
100% Compostable phone case – eco-friendly phone cases to replace plastic ones will protect vulnerable species.
Reusable drink bottles – 16 million plastic bottles go un-recycled in the UK each day. Chokes rivers, destroys ocean habitat for marine life.
Disposable coffee cups – 7 million disposable coffee cups are used each day in the UK, 2.5 billion every year. Only 1% of paper cups get recycled as they’re lined with plastic polyethylene to make it waterproof. Unsuitable for recycling.
Little, compassionate efforts can make a huge difference to the well-being of our beautiful planet.
