How to rethink and redesign the way we make and consume things

Plastic has become a valuable material in today’s economy, it is cheap, safe and efficient packaging used vastly in the distribution of the products. What’s more, it has a smaller carbon footprint in comparison to many alternative packaging materials. The problem is, it is NOT Biodegradable. We need to keep it out of our rivers, countryside, streets, and also, oceans.

how to rethink and redesign the way we use things

It is estimated that 100 million marine animals die every year because of discarded plastic. We have a responsibility and opportunity to ensure to keep the plastic out of the environment and for plastic to take its place in the circular economy. It means that we need to take radical change how we use and recycle plastic. To start, you need to rethink & redesign the things that we consume. Let’s check out what are the top ways to think, design, and plan for the way forward.

  1. Before you buy something new, consider whether you can borrow from a friend or neighbour? Can you buy it second-hand? Or is it possible to hire it?
  2. Replace plastic bottles, bags, straws, or diapers try switching to Reusable coffee cups, an insulated water bottle or any of the many other eco-friendly products that are easily available online and in store.
  3. Before making a purchase, take into consideration is there a similar product made from recycled materials? Recently, I purchased some trainers made from recycled nylon and recycled rubber.
  4. Refrain using single-usage plastic. Say no to plastic bags, food wrapped in un-necessary plastic, straws, or cups. Carry your eco-friendly items such as reusable straws, stainless steel water bottles or reusable glass coffee cup. Have you considered can even refill the glass jars you have used.
  5. Have you considered can even refilling glass jars when you go shopping, instead of purchasing new plastic jars.

 Take your first step and swap to a reusable item, like bamboo toothbrushes, stainless steel water bottles, reusable bread bags, tumblers, lunch boxes and other containers.
