Understand the Impact of Your Plastic Use

First, it’s crucial to understand the sheer scale of plastic pollution and its impacts on ecosystems and health. Plastics, particularly single-use plastics like bottles, bags, and straws, contribute significantly to environmental degradation. Further, this harms wildlife and also enters the human food chain through microplastics. In short, acknowledging these facts is the first step toward meaningful change starting now, on Earth Day 2024.
