Single-use or disposable products waste significant resources, and end up polluting our waterways or wasting away in landfills. Try to avoid using single-use items, and instead opt for reusables. Reusables not only save you money, but also keep harmful plastics out of our environment.
Disposable products like utensils, plates, cups, napkins, water bottles, bags, razors, and diapers all use resources to make, only to end up being thrown out after one use. All of those items have reusable alternatives, and many are very easy to carry around with you.
It’s easy to bring a reusable water bottle with you, as well as a bamboo utensil kit, and tote bag. These items not only reduce waste, but may also save you some money!
New York State has passed a ban on plastic bags and grocery stores in the Town of Bedford have a fee on single-use paper bags to promote reusable bags.
