Feel Good approved: ways to reduce your plastic use in 2023
We pride ourselves on being eco-friendly, plastic free and easily recyclable. However, we know being eco-friendly and cutting down plastic for the rest of your life isn’t as easy as just picking up a pack of Feel Good.
If you’re looking for some other easy ways to cut down on ‘greening up your life’ – look no further.
Here are some simple switches to cut down a little bit more on your plastic use…
Switch to bar soap instead of those that come in hard-to-recycle plastic bottles
Next time you’re adding shop to your trolley in your weekly shop, maybe consider your options. Bars of soap have a much lower environmental impact, due to packing being more minimal and paper-based.
This is compared to liquid soap which is packaged in plastic disposable bottles.
Use matches instead of plastic throw-away lighters
If you’re a candle lover, you might have a few plastic lighters hanging around your house. But how about switching to matches instead? It may be a small step to cut down on plastic, but every little helps. And, doesn’t it feel much classier?
Switch to cans or glass instead of plastic drinks bottles
Instead of buying a plastic bottle of water from the supermarket every time you’re thirsty, why not invest in a reusable bottle?
Over 12.7 million tonnes of plastic are dumped in the ocean each year. Scientists predict that by 2050 they will contain more plastic by weight than fish. By switching to a reusable bottle, the average Brit can save around 150 single-use plastic bottles from use every year.
Switch to pencils instead of plastic pens
Another small but might tip you might not have thought of. Instead of buying cheap plastic pens that you’ll inevitably lose, or break and spill ink everywhere, go for a pencil instead! That way you can erase all your mistakes, including any relating to plastic use…
