With the improvement of living standards, industrially manufactured products will bring a lot of garbage while bringing convenience to people. Plastic products have exploded in the past few decades. According to the National Geographic Channel, only 9% of plastic products are eventually recycled, which means that most of the plastic bottles, disposable tableware, straws and plastic cups we used have been landfilled or flowed to the sea. It takes hundreds of years to biodegrade, posing a health threat to both marine life and humans. Therefore, people should actively implement waste sorting, promote recycling, and develop green habits. Adhere to the following small methods to reduce unnecessary waste. Here some advice is as follows.
Tip one, when you order a takeaway, reject the items that will eventually be thrown into dustbins include plastic cutlery, straws, napkins, tote bags and condiments in small packages. It may not be necessary to eat the above items at home, so remember to remind the takeaway restaurant not to put these items. Try it when dining in a restaurant. Do not use a plastic spoon when you order French fries. Take only one or two when you take a napkin. Do not take a thick stack. Say no to plastic straws. If you must use a straw, you can bring a reusable straw from your homes, such as stainless steel or bamboo.
Tip two, take out the necessary items on the outing and say no to the disposable chopsticks. According to statistics of dustbins, the world needs to cut down 20 million trees every year to make disposable chopsticks, as well as wooden toothpicks, which are mostly discarded after one use. When you go to work, go out to eat or go on a trip, you should bring your own used metal chopsticks, as well as other tableware, cloth napkins, water cups, etc. A better way is to bring your own healthy meals.
Tip three, do not take promotional materials. Brochures, promotional materials, and small items at concerts, exhibitions, or festivals may seem tempting, but don't take them if not necessary. When these things are taken home, they are likely to be thrown directly into the corner and eventually thrown into Plastic Dustbin .
