RETHINK Our plastic consumption and our dependence on it. Do a plastic audit in our lives and make a habit change
REFUSE Single use plastic as much as you can. Politely ask the server not to give you a straw when ordering drinks. Shop at zero waste stores, carry your own water bottles, coffee mugs, shopping bags, containers and utensils. Choose items made in materials other than plastics, such as glass, paper, wood, ceramic, stainless steel or bamboo
REDUCE Your plastic consumption. Whenever possible, choose alternatives that are not plastic.
REUSE Any plastic items that you cannot refuse, such as utensils, containers, bottles and bags
RECYCLE What you can’t avoid. Talk to your property management at home and at work to check that they have a proper recycling system. If they don’t, collect your recyclables and bring them to near by community collection centers. Sort and clean them before dropping them.
