To completely disintegrate plastic may take up to 1000 years, during this process it aids to carbon emissions, majorly contributing to global warming and climate change. That makes replacing plastic bottles with reusable ones an urgent need of the hour.
Humans tend to indirectly consume microplastics, which are small left out pieces of plastic in landfills and oceans. Animals mistake them for food and eat. Meat and seafood are widely consumed by humans. Thus, acting as a harmful substance for both of them. To break this chain, we need to bring some small habit changes.
Coming to the solution, reusable bottles are more fun and creative to use with a wide range of designs and styles you can choose any and express yourself through your choices.
Mostly, the plastic ends up being dumped into oceans & rivers thus poisoning aquatic life very badly. Therefore, think before using plastic bottles and the impact it will create on aquatic life.
Plastic is not all a good choice when it comes to durability. Whereas, materials like metal, glass or bamboo are both durable and good for your health.
Reusable bottles can be used to carry coffee, tea, juices or any other liquids.
Don’t pay the extra 5-10 rupees per bag they charge you at the grocery, retail store. Save your money and save our planet by bringing some reusable bags when you go food shopping, to the pharmacy, or out for a day shopping with friends.
Next time you are out for drinks or grabbing a cold coffee at your local cafe, ask to skip the straw. If you rely on straws because of a disability, you can buy a reusable straw made out of stainless steel, bamboo to bring with you on the go. They even make ones with handy packs and cleaning brushes so you can stay clean and eco-friendly.
