10 Easy Solutions to get Climate Fit + #PlasticFree

1.Choose a plant based diet and reduce food waste

2. Backyard garden & compost

3. Choose solar, wind at home  - or community solar. I use this company for my energy bill - www.arcadiapower.com/juli3150

4. Ride a bike & carpool. 

5. Unplug at home, turn off lights, pull plugs from wall. Power down at night including your WIFI.

6. Choose to reuse - bring your own coffee mug, reusable bottle, utensils, bag, to go ware. 

7. Refuse single-serving packaging, excess packaging, and other 'disposable' plastics.

8. Ditch the straw - it's not needed and causes wrinkles! 

9. Do I even need to mention how bad smoking is? Cigarette butts are made of plastic too - with loads of chemicals & toxins.

10. This is the LAST RESORT after reduce and reuse - Recycle.  If you must use plastic, try to choose #1 (PETE) or #2 (HDPE), which are the most commonly recycled plastics.  Avoid plastic bags and polystyrene foam, lids, clamshells as both typically have very low recycling rates.

GET ACTIVE!

Volunteer at a beach cleanup.  Surfrider Foundation Chapters often hold cleanups monthly or more frequently.

Support plastic bag bans, polystyrene foam bans and bottle recycling bills. Go #BANPOLYSTYRENE with 5 Gyres Institute.

Spread the word.  Talk to your family and friends about why it is important to Rise Above Plastics!
