Being aware of the negative impact of plastic on the environment, I have made a conscious effort to reduce my plastic waste. Instead of taking plastic utensils when eating at fast food restaurants like Panda Express or Poke places, I bring my own set of reusable utensils that I purchased on Amazon. These utensils are great, and I wash them after each use. If I plan to eat in my car or at a coffee shop, I grab my reusable utensils before leaving my house. But if I plan to eat at home, I usually go back and eat with the utensils that I already have. While some people might find this inconvenient, I believe it is a small but impactful step that I can take to reduce my plastic usage and contribute to environmental preservation.
