  • One of the biggest threats to our environment would be the plastics that we use. They take a very long time to break down and when they do break down, they can absorb and release dangerous chemicals which will consequently harm our ecosystem. One of the actions that you could take in an effort to reduce this problem could be to avoid using single-use plastics. In my case, I have this reusable water bottle that I drink from very often so that I can both stay hydrated and also prevent possible harm that could be inflicted on the planet. By purchasing this, I save up on so many plastic water bottles and by filling it up all the time, I help remind myself of the importance of upkeeping sustainable practices. This product is very convenient since while I can also drink this at home, I can carry this thing everywhere…

  • Plastic pollution can modify habitats and natural processes, limiting ecosystems' capacity to adapt to climate change and adversely affecting millions of people's social and economic well-being and livelihoods. Therefore, to reduce plastic use, invest in a zipped fabric bag, and ask to return your cleaned goods in the bag they came in rather than wrapped in plastic. (While at it, make sure you regularly use a dry cleaner that forgoes the perc, a hazardous substance in some cleaning solvents.)
