It’s affordable, it’s multipurpose, and, it’s an element that few people are able to live without. Though these elements made to throw after a single use, this element does not go away. It is our beloved plastic!
There’s no second thought concerning the fantastic use of plastic products which have made our life easy. Products like helmets, car seats and medical equipment (just to mention a few) are essential items which not only improve, however, saves our life. We can call them a”good plastic”.
The plastic I will talk about today is Superfluous plastic. As you’re reading this article, chances are huge that it’s present nearby you! Turn right, then left, do you see any pencil, food container? No? Now, do you find a computer or mobile? Maybe keyboard or mouse? I think the answer is obvious now. So where I am going with this? The answer is pretty much clear. Bad plastics are everywhere! It is like watching your nose every single day. Though you observe it every moment, however, like your body you also tend to dismiss this lousy plastic.
Considering nobody (even me. I can not lose my job!) Going to stop using a mobile phone or computer, I will go room by room through the home highlighting what throwaway plastic are available and I will certainly offer some solution (practiced by me) to decrease the use of it.
Plastic Containers: Let’s start with the kitchen. Everyone has nowadays owned a microwave-friendly plastic container to store their leftover food. With no doubt, saving food is good and the container operates the way it should be. However, there’s grab, the lifespan of the container is quite brief in accordance with the usability. When the times come, once your beloved container becomes cracked and broken then without any second thought you threw them to the bin. And there goes your US $10 for eternity within a month!
Not just these containers are rather easy to break, it is also causing many several health hazards as well. When you keep your meals in the container, plastic release unhealthy chemical toxin in the food. Keep using this plastic container and I’m certain within months you have to go doctors.
What should you do? Allow me to tell you what I did! After getting back from doctors, I went to the supermarket and purchased food grade steel container. I have been using them for nearly a year now and I think I will have the ability to present them to my grandkids also! Although it’s impossible to use them within a microwave, however, it’s quite easy to move the food into a serving plate/ bowl prior to reheating.
Food Packaging: We’ve all got to eat, however, at times it’s quite impossible to keep a good distance between plastic packaging. When I go to groceries sometimes I stare at the foods and believe” Food producers are might be obsessed with single-use packaging!” . Yeah, it would be a terrific idea for everyone to go to local farmer’s store and purchase vegetables and foods covered in mud in a jute bag. However, the majority of us live in town and to buy from the farmer’s market we have to travel even miles. If you’re fine and excited about that, I would say”Do not”. Since the air pollution can be as awful as plastic contamination itself. In this circumstance, you might use your free right of speech against over packing.
It is also possible to do something what I usually do. After completing the transaction, you can remove the plastic and throw them in the bin in front of an authorized person. This is a good way to market a non- violent protest against over packing.
Cleaning Products: This one is pretty frustrating- cleaning products generally come within a bottle and you clearly can not make your own Eco- friendly bottle. However, there is a way. Perhaps you have heard of Ecover? When you haven’t, then you may use our good old net to gather information! They are pretty much a fad nowadays. You can find them in almost in every supermarket. Well, they are dedicated in use of 100% renewable material and this helps a great deal in building a healthy and green future.
So there you have it – just three suggestions of how you can conquer the throwaway plastic in your kitchen. I will be back next week with ideas to lessen the plastic devil in other areas of the house.
