Beat Plastic Pollution: One Month on

Beat Plastic PollutionThis article looks at my personal progress made over the past month since World Environment Day 2018, which had the theme of “Beat Plastic Pollution”.

Since my public postings of video and written articles, I have maintained my pledge to:

  1. Reduce the plastic content of my shopping
    By shopping at local shops offering wicker baskets to carry my shopping and paper bags to take the shopping home
  2. Reduce disposable water bottle waste
    I have brought a re-usable water bottle for my journeys away from the home but have found it difficult to find refill stations.
  3. Reduce the use of disposable take-away cups
    During the past month, I have not used the take-away option at any Coffee Shop & instead have preferred to relax and enjoy my drink.

After reading this article, please catch-up on my nine-part series of videos on my YouTube Channel, which can be accessed here covering my “love/hate” addiction to the use of plastic in my personal and business life together with suggestions on how you can go “Plastic-less”.

My nine video series covered the following topics:

Plastic-less Video 3: Waste Weighing and Audit

Plastic-less Video 4: A Hot Chocolate Moment
