In just 30 years there will be more plastic than fish in the ocean, by weight. This plastic pollution is fueled by the fact that a garbage truck worth of plastic is dumped into the ocean every single minute. What can we do as a society to slow, or even stop this process from happening altogether? The only answer is to drastically reduce the amount of plastic we use during our daily lives.
This infographic shares 50 simple changes one can make to greatly reduce the amount of plastic they use. Something as simple as telling a restaurant you don’t need plastic cutlery when ordering delivery can help cut back on plastic waste. Save on plastic AND on cash by bringing your own cup to coffee shops that offer a discount for doing so.
Even if you must buy something packaged in plastic, choose the one that comes in clear plastic, which is more likely to be recycled. Start slow and incorporate a few of these into your daily life, and work your way up from there!
