Being a cheap material and convenient to use, plastic is everywhere and almost impossible to avoid. But here are simple ways you can help the planet and improve your health:

  1. Go for reusable coffee cups when taking away beverages
  2. Use cloth or paper bags when doing grocery shopping
  3. Use refillable metal drinking water bottles
  4. Buy glass food containers instead of plastic takeaway containers
  5. Use textile or washable food storage bags instead of zip lock bags and freezer bags
  6. Shop at your local market or farmers market, as it eliminates the use of plastic pre-packaging that you would find in supermarkets
