    There are so many items that use plastic in our lives. A little change daily or even monthly can make a huge impact on repurposing our plastic consumption.

    Plastics are a huge problem for our environment and for both humans and animal life but if we use it responsibly we can reduce our carbon footprint. 

    TASK: Choose only plastics that are made of recyclable plastics and try to lessen your consumption of plastics overall.
