How to Cut Down Plastic

We all are aware of how bad the plastic is for the environment, but the reality is that we’re so used to have plastic products on our daily lives that it becomes difficult not to use them. So, what I want with this post is to give you a few tips on what you can change so we can all cut down the plastic usage.

1.Say “No” to plastic bags

Get fabric bags instead. I love this tip, you can have really cute bags when you go grocery shopping, mine have different sayings and cute patterns. I also have smaller ones for fruit and vegetables (and they all match haha). What I also love about this is that you can throw them into the washer and they’re brand new again.

2. Shampoo and Conditioner Bars

Quit buying shampoo and conditioners stored in plastic containers. You can buy or make your own! I find that my shampoo bars last a lot longer then the “normal” shampoo I used to get, it actually saves me money. I also noticed a huge difference in my hair, it’s a lot healthier and growing faster because it’s not getting harsh chemicals like it used to.

3. Household Detergents

Make your own household cleaners and store them in glass containers. This will help the environment, and it will also be beneficial for you health since they won’t have harsh chemicals.
