Some easy swaps:

Use a reusable bottle instead of a single-use plastic bottle. Remember to take your drink out with you in a reusable bottle therefore you don’t need to buy one when you are out.

You can use this bottle over and over meaning you’re not using single-use plastic.

Always remember to take your reusable bags with you when you go shopping. This way you do not need to purchase a single-use plastic one in the shops.

Remember! If you are using single-use plastic, check out our A-Z to see whether it can be recycled in your glass, cans and plastic recycling bins at home.
