Everyday Products to Swap Out Today

Disposable products are thrown out after a few minutes of use, yet their impacts on our environment last thousands of years. Take a second to list down all the disposable cups, utensils, plastic bags, straws, and food containers you’ve ever used...you probably can’t, but they are ALL still buried somewhere in this world.

Although disposable products and packaging have become so prevalent to our everyday life, it is possible to avoid them. Start by asking yourself if you really need to buy a bag at the grocery store, or buy bottled water when you can bring your own water in a bottle. While avoiding all disposable packaging is not practical for most people, these sustainable swaps are certainly something worth introducing to your life to reduce waste.
