It’s Plastic Free July and we’ve asked the HYDAWAY team how they reduce their plastic waste in their everyday lives. Read below to get inspired and learn how you can implement these tactics into your daily routine too!
Use reusable shopping bags every time. If I forget, I park the cart and go get them or hand carry the groceries out. Every time.
I’m picky about what containers are used in food packaging. Some jars look like glass but are plastic. Glass is more easily recycled. Aluminum and cardboard/paperboard are the best choices for recyclability.
Teaching the three R’s to my kids so they grow up with an understanding of their impact on our planet. Strong emphasis on the Reduce and Reuse aspects. Recycling is not happening like many people think.
Bring reusable water bottles and cups, straws, and cutlery on every road trip and even around town. Saying no thank you when presented with a straw or plastic accessories. It’s not offensive to say no.”
