Nowadays, plastic is pretty much everywhere and the non-biodegradable substance is killing millions of creatures on the planet. What most people don’t realise is that a lot of oil is also being used to manufacture the vast amounts of plastic we use, causing further harm to the environment.
Here are some clever ways to cut down your use of plastic. Because seriously, it’s not fair that a fish has to die every time you go grocery shopping.
1. Say no to plastic straws.

2. Buy products that come in glass jars or cardboard packaging.
Instead of buying foods that come in plastic packaging, buy products that come in glass jars or cardboard packaging instead. Glass jars especially are super useful, since you can reuse them again and again.
3. Carry your own water with you.
Instead of buying a plastic bottle every time you’re thirsty, make it a point to carry your own bottle with you.
