Jeff Bridges has taken on plastic waste and has an excellent video and list of ways to reduce your plastic pollution. See his video here.
Here are 10 easy ways to reduce your plastic footprint:
Bring your own shopping bag to the grocery store
Stop buying bottled water – Use a reusable bottle instead
Say no to straws
Stop using disposable razors – Buy one with a replaceable cartridge
Ditch the plastic baggies – Wax paper and mason jars work wonders in the kitchen
Avoid using plastic utensils – Bring your own fork when you eat out
Choose glass over plastic
Buy the powdered version – Liquid versions of soaps and detergents tend to come in plastic bottles, powdered products come in cardboard boxes
Cut out the BPA – If a plastic bottle has a 3,7 or PC sign, it contains the most toxic types of plastic
Follow #RefusePlastic on social media for more ideas and to join the conversation

Never use baggies again:
