Many of us are constantly on the go, and sometimes we just don’t have the time to make our food at home or brew that morning cup of coffee. So we find ourselves ordering our coffee in to-go coffee cups or buying water bottle for convenience. That’s a lot of unnecessary plastic.
Bring a reusable water bottle with you. Stay hydrated for work and play!
Use a insulated mug for coffee and tea on-the-go, some shops offer discounts when you do!
You can buy reusable beverage containers at big box stores, online and locally. Some community events give out branded bottles for free and more likely, you probably have some already. Start using them today!
WATCH: Rob Greenfield’s Trash Me project. For 30 days, he wears every single piece of trash he creates while living like the average American, it is a great way to really visualize how easily waste can accumulate:
