Message in a bottle- helping you to kick the plastic habit!
MAKE A BIG SPLASH..BE AMBITIOUS, MAKE GREAT CHANGES TO HELP OUR PLANET OR START GENTLY ON THE WAVE OF CHANGE..
WE CAN ALL DO SOMETHING MORE ON OUR JOURNEY TO A BETTER FUTURE. .
The 4 R's are key to us all working towards a more sustainable lifestyle.
Start by refusing those things that actually, you could go without -extra bags, straws, general junk that we get given in good faith (plastic toys, gifts etc) or new replacements when we could in fact repair and remake use of what we already have.
Reduce - cut out all the stuff you don't really need or think you need, part of this will also mean you refill, reuse and make the things you own last a bit longer.
Reuse - get creative, rethink, remake, refill and repair, reimagine...
Finally, (last resort..) Recycle- It might be the case you are already using what your council offers but beyond this you can try some small initiatives yourself ( and maybe still find you can reuse the items before you recycle). For example, if you have lots of boxes and packaging find someone who might reuse them, glass jars can be passed on to Jam making gurus, try creating something out of your worn clothes such as fingerless gloves from jumper sleeves or cushions or patchwork. (or pass onto someone who might be interested in collecting pieces of fabric). Why use plant pots when plastic containers or old newspapers can be used. Remember too it's not just about things... energy, water and land etc are all resources we must use with care.
The possibilities for change are endless..
Trying to change the future is not Useless if we USE less..:)
