At our Eco Fair in March 2019 we asked for people’s tips about avoiding single-use plastics – there were so many amazing ideas! Some are more broadly about caring for our environment, but we have included them anyway. Here are just a few suggestions…
What could you do? Do you have other tips?
Have your milk delivered in glass bottles – they are reused many times (Milk and More)
Buy fruit and veg loose – use paper bags or your own bag
Make your own soup with leftover vegetables – no use of plastic containers!
Ladies: try a moon cup or washable sanitary towels or look up Monthlies.co.uk
Children and babies
Refer to “disposable” nappies as “single -use” nappies
Make your own baby wipes (demos available online)
In your community
If you have a litter picker, go litter picking as much as you can
Ask shops and stalls questions (politely) about using alternatives to plastics
