The Earth is a fine place and worth fighting for. – Ernest Hemingway
According to the United Nations Environment Programme (UNEP), the Philippines is one of the 5 countries that contribute plastic waste into the ocean. And if this will continue, we will see more plastic than fishes by the year 2050.
So as Filipino, what can I do to help our country reduce plastic waste?
Little by little, I’m trying switching to a zero-waste lifestyle. As a start, I always bring eco-bag every time I go to the market. I also make sure to carry a refillable bottle when I travel. And now, I would like to step up by eliminating the use of plastic straw.
Thankfully, Anything Eco partnered up with my zero-waste lifestyle journey! They sent sets of reusable straws. I love all the colors of the metal straw but the rainbow set stands out the most for me. I also shared 3 sets on our last event Bohemian Bloggers Night as a prize so other bloggers can try it too.
