Single use plastic straws and cutlery are known to be one of the biggest wastes of plastic – and one of the easiest swaps for people to make. Making sure to carry reusable cutlery with you helps to ensure you can eat out and buy takeaways without worrying about your plastic waste. Not only do single use plastic items such as cutlery and plastic straws contribute to the mass amount of plastic waste – but they can be extremely damaging to the oceans and marine life. Switching to reusable straws and cutlery is one small step you can take to protecting the planet and reducing waste.
