Instead of using plastic bags like the ones we use in grocery stores, we could use fabric bags that are reusable.
Instead of using all of plastic bottles, use a cup or water bottle. You could say that’s wasting water because you have to rinse it out but polluting even more water from throwing away plastic bottles that would take around 450 years to degrade would be worse.
Change peoples mind set. If you give someone a biodegradable product they may think it will be okay to then throw it away, when it still may take years to disappear.
