Nowadays, there are a whole lot of items – such as plastic bottles, utensils and wrap – that are designed to be used once and then thrown “away.” That may feel convenient, but there is a long-term cost. Many items cannot be recycled easily and those that can be recycled don’t always make it into the recycling cart. The result: litter, plastic pollution and wasted resources.
But there are useful, reusable solutions that look and feel better and are often healthier to use than plastic alternatives. Let Zero Waste Marin’s ReUseful campaign inspire you! Learn some easy ways to cut down on throw-away plastic at https://zerowastemarin.org/reuseful.
