There’s a big push to using less plastic these days, but actually the issue should really be about making less waste in general. Which is why this great little summary about “How to make less trash” really appealed to me.
It highlights the many different ways to reduce waste – things like buying better and repairing, simplifying and food composting make the list which I don’t think many people think about or practise unless they are “super greenies”. I doubt the average Joe does these things (well, I certainly don’t know any that do).
We all need to be encouraged to make changes in all aspects of our lives. Not using a plastic straw is just the tip of the tip of the iceberg.
