Ways to Reduce Plastic Usage

Jun 06, 2018

Since 1974, 5th June is celebrated as Environment day by the United Nations and is observed to encourage awareness and action for protection of our environment. Over 100 countries celebrated this day and it is the “people’s day” for doing something to take care of mother earth.

Each year this day is centered on a theme that focuses on a particular problem that environment is dealing with. This year’s theme was “Beat plastic pollution”. The focus is on minimizing the use of single-use plastic throughout the world like polythene bags and pet bottles that contribute to the largest portion of plastic wastes produced by humans.

How often do we use plastic? Almost the entire day right? With a lot of plastic usages, our environment suffers a lot. Yearly, 5 trillion pieces of plastic float around in the oceans because of which sea pollution is increasing and more than 260 species of marine animals are affected by plastic debris in the ocean. The plastic doesn’t make our world uglier, it makes it unhealthy too. The usage of plastic degraded the quality of water and soil. As a living member of this earth, we need to reduce plastic usage to save animals and our environment

Check out some ways to reduce the usage of plastic from our life:

1. Carry cloth bags with you for shopping instead of plastic bag.

2. Stop using plastic water bottle; remember to take your own steel water bottle.

3. Stop using straws when you order a drink.

4. Switch to cloth diapers from disposable ones

5. Try to use less disposable cutlery and invest in reusable one.

6. Reduce the buying of pre-packaged food items like biscuits, chips etc which are packed in plastic.

7. Avoid using the disposable razor, instead chose the one that lets you change the blade.

I am sure we all can adopt these habits to reduce the plastic usage in our daily life.
