From shopping bags and coffee/travel mugs, to lunch kits and food containers, there are reusable versions of many items we use on a regular basis, cutting down on the need for single-use bags and containers.
Many of us remember to use cloth bags for groceries, but what about when shopping for clothing and other merchandise? Get more use out of those reusable bags!
If you purchase bulk foods, a number of stores will allow you to bring in your own container, reducing the need for disposable plastic bags. Same with restaurants - ask the server to pack your takeout or leftovers in reuseable containers you bring yourself.
You may be using reusable lunch containers, but did you know that there are reusable alternatives for plastic wrap and sandwich bags too? And don't forget your reuseable cutlery!
Take another look at those items you use regularly and consider what can be swapped out for something reusable, and what reusable items can be used for other things.
