Whether you are trying to cut down on plastics heading to landfill or you are concerned about the chemicals that can be released from plastics, we can all make a difference to the amount of plastics we use in our day to day lives.

Here are four ways you can make a difference:

  1. Use glass or ceramic containers to store your left overs – heat can release microscopic chemicals from plastics into your food. Use non-plastic containers to re-heat and store your food.
  2. Change your water bottle and use a reusable coffee cup – Switch to glass for your water bottle and carry a re-usable cup for your morning coffee. This will eliminate plastic waste and keeps single waste cups out of landfill.
  3. Plastic packaging may contain potentially harmful chemicals – even if the label says ‘BPA’ free, it may still contain chemicals like phthalates. Check the numbers on the containers and keep away from any plastics labelled 3 and 7. Numbers 1, 2 ,4, 5 or 6 are a better choice.
  4. Responsibly recycle – managing waste and being proactive with your household recycling will save energy and de-tox your home.
