Cutting down on plastic usage: easier than it seems


y now, we all know the horrors of plastic. The way it hangs around without biodegrading for centuries, the way itís clogging the stomachs of birds, how it creates islands in the ocean for marine life to get stuck in, how it pollutes our riverways and motorways as non-biodegradable rubbish.

Yet itís everywhere. If you want a takeaway coffee, thereís plastic lining in about 99% of disposable cups. If you want a sandwich at a deli, itís more than likely going to be wrapped in plastic. Even when youíre doing your very best to be healthy, a two litre milk comes in a plastic container and most major supermarkets produce is wrapped or bagged in plastic.
