Cut down on plastic waste: use bamboo instead
As we ponder the ways we can reduce our dependence upon plastics we need to consider using environmentally friendly materials in place of them. One such material is bamboo and, particularly moso bamboo which has many applications in the home.
Plastic is incredibly destructive to our oceans and marine life. By now many have seen the horrific images of sperm whales washed up around the coasts of Europe, the contents of their stomachs revealing that they had recently made meals of plastic waste.
Plastics have entered the food chain and because of our dependence upon the food chain, we, like the marine wildlife, are also vulnerable.
You can help to keep plastics out of our oceans by cutting down on plastic waste and considering the alternatives. Remember: reduce, reuse, recyle.
