Today’s Sustainable Action: Using Reusable Bags!
Instead of using single-use plastic bags, you can use reusable bags. These can either be reusable plastic containers or reusable sandwich bags; these can be used for lunches and other everyday things. Using these cuts down on the amount of waste you produce that ends up in the landfill.
Making single-use plastic bags is also harmful to the environment, for their production involves fossil fuels.
Taking this action will reduce the amount of money you will be spending and protect the environment. There are many different places you can buy reusable items, such as Amazon, by simply searching for “reusable sandwich bags” or “plastic food containers.”
Thank you for taking the time to read this, and remember to always keep the safety of the environment in mind!
Today’s Fact: 300 million plastic bags end up in the Atlantic Ocean in just a single year.
It’s the next generation that will deal with the effects of Climate Change on the Earth so we are thrilled to introduce Maddy Brianas and her Tips!
