Leave out plastics

Although it might seem like plastic is everywhere nowadays, it is actually not that difficult to reduce your plastic consumption. For example, try to bring a reusable mug when you get your coffee, skip plastic straws, use a canvas bag when grocery shopping and buy loose fruits and vegetables. You can also get a water filter system for your house, so you won’t have to buy plastic water bottles anymore.

Another way to leave out plastic is to opt for sustainably made clothes and cosmetics, which are usually free from microplastics and make use of sustainable non-plastic or recycled packaging.
