Reduce, reuse, recycle

By now  we are all aware of plastic pollution. While I am not one to say we should ban all plastics, I will definitely say everyone needs to do their part to reduce plastic waste. For example; for the sake of my teeth, I will not change my electric tooth brush for a bamboo one. I will however bring my own cup and straw to Starbucks and the like. You can make a difference too! 

On a personal level:

Refuse balloons
Bring your own shopping bag
Bring your own straw
Bring your own mug
Be a litter picker
