Plastics accumulating in the ocean

I've heard a lot about plastics accumulating in the ocean. It seems too daunting to do anything about.

I'm from a place where there's no recycling and you can't drink from the tap.

Some things that have made me feel better:

  • Is bringing my own bags to the store and just throw my fruits and veggies in the basket
  • I stopped using plastic straws
  • I try to bring my own mug or cup for drinks
  • My grandma’s house got a water dispenser cuz the water on the rez is no bueno. That right there is a game changer – not throwing away all those plastic bottles.
  • I even found bamboo toothbrushes.
 

Mostly it’s just paying attention to what your habits are and what you can be better at. This applies to everything, not just your plastic use.

Take care,
