Tips On Reducing Plastic AND BPA Use In Your Home
Earth Day is the perfect time to think about what you are doing to help protect the environment, and there are some easy ways to do just that. For one, start by reducing your use of plastic. First, start with your single use plastic grocery bags. Think about how many of these bags you use to hold a few peppers, apples or lemons, only to discard them once you’re home? The average person uses between 500 and 1000 of these a year. They cause massive environmental damage…only a fraction of them are recycled, with most ending up in landfill. According to the EPA in 2010, only 12 percent of plastic bags, sacks and wraps were recycled.
