Say ‘No’ To Single-Use Plastic

Refusing single-use plastic in your daily life can be as simple as saying, “No plastic straw, please,” or bringing your own reusable water bottle and bag with you when you leave home. These small actions do add up, and send a message to companies and the world that you don’t want all this plastic.

REFUSE single-use plastic whenever and wherever possible. Choose items that are not packaged in plastic, and carry your own reusable bags, containers, and utensils. Say ‘No plastic straw, please.’

REUSE durable, non-toxic straws, utensils, to-go containers, bottles, bags, and other everyday items. Choose glass, paper, stainless steel, wood, ceramic, and bamboo over plastic.

REDUCE your plastic footprint. Cut down on your consumption of goods that are made of and packaged in plastic. If it will leave behind plastic pollution, don’t buy it.

RETHINK what you can’t Refuse, Reduce, or Reuse. Pay attention to the entire lifecycle of items you bring into your life, from source to manufacture to distribution to disposal.
