5 ways to ditch single use plastic
Hey there! My name is Dani and I am a wife and mother living in Southern California. I am a passionate foodie continuously experimenting in my apartment kitchen, I am an advocate for non toxic living and sustaining a plastic free lifestyle. My love for blogging has allowed me to share my experiences throughout the years with others and has allowed me to connect with amazing people. Find me on Instagram and let’s start a conversation!
The Plastic Free Movement is something I am so completely passionate about. The horrible effects Plastic Pollution has on our sweet Mother Earth are catastrophic...but they are reversible and can be avoided if we all join together and do our part.
It all started back in January 2018, that is when I made it my mission to begin eliminating single use plastic from my home. As much as I could. I have found that every little bit of effort makes it easier and easier to achieve my goal. I started small, I switched out my ziplock bags for reusable ones and from there I began discovering more ways I could slowly eliminate one-time use items from my home. From an alternative to plastic wrap, to switching out plastic straws for stainless steel straws. It all started to get so much easier, and I finally saw how silly it was to have been using plastic and non reusable item for so many years!
I now find myself sharing these amazing finds with everyone I know, and I am constantly teaching others how easy it is to make the switch. I also find it important to help educate people on the harm Plastic Pollution has on our planet and then love hearing people say they are going to make an effort to make the changes themselves. All it takes is one small action, then the rest gets easier. I encourage you to educate yourself and learn more about this cause and ways you can help! And in the end you are going to feel so good about the little things you are doing that are making a HUGE positive impact in our world.
