Using Less Plastic In Your Home
Using less plastic in your home is a great way to help the environment, improve your health, save time and money. These simple tips can have a big impact of the environment and helping to cut down on plastic pollution.
- Carry your own reusable shopping bag. I use a strong natural woven which has lasted me years!
- Use glass soap dispensers to refill cosmetic products. I buy products in bulk to save money then refill them into glass bottles. These look so lovely in a bathroom, giving a clutter free look, without lots of plastic bottles.
- Using glass jars to store food, you can add lovely labels to name the item or shown a use by date. these can look so lovely as a decoration in your kitchen.
- Purchase food from local shops, for example the butchers, which the use minimal packaging. Going to the fruit and veg shop with a basket, no need for individually wrapping your fruit and veg, as we you get home store in a draw in your fridge or a basket in the kitchen.
- Use only glass and ceramic plates, glasses, mugs etc. They will also last a lifestyle if kept well!
- Using reusable food wraps, by using parchment paper pockets instead.
- Storing leftover food in a tiffin tin or ceramic pots.
- Carry your own reusable water bottle or coffee cup for when you’re out and about.
- Decanting your washing up liquid into a glass bottle, looks lovely too!
