Some 100 billion disposable pieces of plastic cutlery are used and thrown out every year. Parts of the ocean are turning into a plastic soup. That’s because of single use and disposable plastics. The culprits? Takeaway containers, water bottles, straws, plastic bags and plastic cups.
Say no to bags, extra napkins and cutlery. If you’re going home or to work to eat your takeaway, use the cutlery there. If you’re shopping for clothes reduce the amount of bags you use by bring your own reusable bag or doubling up and using one bag for everything.
