Guest Post from the Author

Hi! I’m Tracey Szynkaruk and I am the author of A Plastic-free World for you and me. I had written my children’s book in hopes to inspire people to live a greener lifestyle. Here are some are easy changes anyone can make to help reduce plastic use in our daily lives. 

  1. Bring your own grocery bags when you go shopping. It is helpful leaving a few in the car.
  2. Do not use the thin plastic produce bags at the grocery store. Either purchase the reusable mesh bags produce bags or better yet, do not use any bags and just wash your produce when you get home. 
  3. Replace zip lock bags with containers.
  4. Do not take or use plastic cutlery. You can easily bring some from home or if you are already home why do you need more?
  5. Say no to straws. There are a variety of straws available that are reusable such as metal straws or perhaps you do not need one at all. 
  6. Instead of drinking from plastic water bottles, invest in a reusable one. 
  7. Try using shampoo bars instead of plastic bottled ones. 

These are just a few suggestions that can lead to cleaner streets, oceans and communities. By making a small change we can collectively make a massive difference for a better world.
