Habit change for plastic culture

If we carefully observe around us from our phone’s cover to our favourite water bottle, it’s all plastic! We have incorporated it into almost every facet of our living making us more comfortable. The plastic culture is so profound that unknowingly we contribute a lot to the everyday plastic waste generated globally. To reverse this problem, we need to consider both obvious and novel behavior change and product development. In order to achieve this, it is necessary to explore all options relating to the way we design, produce and consume products and determine what acceptable waste is. A few environment friendly products and practices developed of late is remarkable examples like stainless steel hydro flasks and completely compostable toothbrush that has a handle made from sustainably harvested wood, switching to UNpaper towels instead of paper towels and refilling the laundary soap instead of buying a new one and using Aluminium cans instead of glass bottles which also leaves smaller carbon footprint as compared to glass bottles. Another simple way that could be incorporated in every day use will be switching to cardboard from plastic. We can look for items in cardboard boxes instead of plastic bottles. This includes laundary detergent and dish soap. So the next time you go for grocery shopping pick pasta in a box instead of a plastic bag!
