What can we do to reduce waste?
If you still like your old clothes, for example, you can wear them for many years.
And if your phone still works, you don’t have to buy the latest model.
Also, it’s good if you can buy things without a lot of packaging.
For example, I buy loose leaf tea and keep it in a large jar.
That way, I don’t need to use paper or plastic every time I make tea.
Then we don’t have to use and throw away plastic cups.
Many cafes and coffee shops now even give you a discount if you bring your own bottle or mug.
I often do that now.
Plastic straws, which get thrown away, are also bad for the environment.
So, I think it’s better to use reusable metal straws instead of plastic ones.
