Eco Friendly Reusable Alternatives to the Plastic Bags
How often do you reach into the cupboard for a plastic bag to put something in, only to throw away after using it that single time? Here is a shocking truth bomb for you..... every piece of plastic that has ever been created still exists on this planet in some form. Yes, some has been recycled into other plastic items, but a lot of it is sitting in landfills, or in our communities and oceans.
It seems like such a monumental task to deal with the amount of plastic waste that exists. It will take such a long time to process it. So the best thing to do right now is to make positive changes to prevent the problem from growing. Instead of adding to the massive amount of plastic waste, let's embrace reusable and recyclable options instead.
What Can I Get That's Reusable?
I think the question should really be, what can't you get that's reusable? There are so many options available that you can have a reusable bag for just about everything. Here are some ideas.....
Give ziplock and plastic sandwich bags the flick in favour of using super cool snack bags. Friendly to the environment and easy to clean (they can even go in the dishwasher), they are a great solution to snacks on the go.
Not only can you fit a sandwich or a snack, but you don't just have to use it for food. With waterproof fabric, you can pack makeup, electronics, toiletries, medication, or just about anything really. So good when you are out for the day, or travelling.
Say no to plastic bags and take your own funky fabric ones instead! Be the envy of everyone at the supermarket with the bright fun colours of reusable shopping bags. Not only do they look good, but they are so practical too. You won't have to worry about handles breaking, the bag splitting, or your sharp corners poking through.
Keep your salad cool and crisp all the way to lunchtime with an insulated lunch bag. Easy to carry and easy to clean, it beats having to hit the cafe every day to buy lunch.
Don't you hate it when you go to the pool or gym and realise that you have forgotten to pack a plastic back for your wet stuff? Well, with a revolutionary wet/dry bag, you won't have to worry any more. It allows you to carry both wet and dry items in the exact same bag.
With a fully sealed waterproof wet pocket, you can zip away your wet togs, sweaty gym gear or sports equipment in an environmentally friendly way. Then you can have your clean fresh items in the dry pocket. It is even designed to resist smells and prevent the growth of bacteria or fungi.
So there you have it. You can ditch the plastic bags once and for all as there is an eco-friendly solution for every situation. From reusable shopping bags, to snacking and even a quarantine section for stinky gym socks! Yum Yum Store have a great range of all the reusable products you will ever need, check it out today.
