Unfortunately, many single-use plastics cannot be recycled. Reducing the amount of single-use plastics consumed and reusing items are the most effective approaches in keeping plastic out of the environment. For more information about what can/can’t be recycled, check out your local waste disposal system website.
We support reusables over wasteful disposable items such as single-use shopping bags, bottled water, coffee cups and to-go containers. To get started, start small, pick one item that you want to change. Track your progress and make a goal. Remember it’s not about perfection, it’s an opportunity to learn and strive to reduce plastic waste every day.
