Plastic products will bring convenience to us, but they will also produce a lot of garbage, 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 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. Apart from some advice proposed by the previous article, I would like to introduce other advice for you

No plastic bags are needed for shopping. When you go shopping in the supermarket, remember to bring a reusable green shopping bag. When you check out, tell the cashier that you don't want plastic bags, so that other customers may also be positively affected.

Buy fresh bread without plastic bags. You can buy fresh bread at the nearest bakery, go home with reusable bags, and don't buy plastic-packed bread. Similarly, the range of unpackaged foods can be extended to cheese, vegetables, honey, eggs, etc.

Choose non-plastic packaging to store food. Do not use plastic packaging such as plastic bags, plastic wrap to preserve food, as these will cause toxins to penetrate the food. Food should be stored in environmentally friendly containers, including glassware, reusable silicone bags, stainless steel lunch boxes, etc.

Reduce waste generation during holidays. During the Spring Festival, Christmas, and online shopping festivals such as Double 11, the waste will surge, mostly in the form of shopping bags, commodity packaging and leftovers, which should be given special attention. You can send an e-card or give a gift that does not produce waste, such as asking a friend to watch a movie or enjoy a concert, etc.
