Life without plastic? Is that even possible? Yes, and rest assured, reducing your own plastic footprint is not only possible, but it’s actually quite easy to accomplish with a few minor lifestyle changes.
While plastic may be cheap and convenient, it’s overused and often not recycled. Not only does plastic pollute the environment and harm wildlife, but it also negatively impacts our health. In fact, the Ellen MacArthur Foundation estimates that by 2050 the amount of accumulated plastic in the ocean will be greater than the number of fish!
Living a plastic-free life is becoming more and more practical with an increasing number of alternatives available. To help you get started, we’ve broken it down into several categories with this plastic-free shopping guide:
