A more responsible way to eat, drink and live
A straw with our iced coffee. A bottled water at an event. A to-go container with our takeout. A plastic bag for our groceries. Individually, each of these single-use choices sounds relatively harmless. But multiplied across millions of people, everyday, over the span of decades, really starts to add up. Waste from single-use products and plastics comes with a steep environmental price—with devastating impact on our oceans, our wildlife, and our planet.
Single-use plastics are most commonly used for food and drink packaging and other service-ware, such as straws, bottles, and plastic bags. All convenience items that could easily be replaced with reusable alternatives. Carrying reusable bottles and bags is a great start, and an effective way to avoid more single-use plastics in our day-to-day lives. Through our individual choices, we have the power to impact industries and change cultural norms, with heroic results. Make the right choice.
