Single-Use Plastic Comes with a Huge Environmental Price

2024 Earth Day

This earth day, we still have a long way to go to reduce our reliance on single-use plastics. Single-use plastic products are used once and then thrown away leaving dangerous microplastics in our ecosystems. One water bottle can take more than 300 years to fully decompose. 


Single-use plastics are having a devastating impact on our oceans, fish, wildlife, and our health. According to a recent study from the National Institutes of Health (NIH), microplastics from water bottles can cause harm to our airways and lungs when inhaled, leading to respiratory symptoms such as coughing, sneezing, and shortness of breath. Although single-use plastics may be convenient, continued usage comes with a huge environmental price!


You can do your part to reduce your reliance on single-use plastics by using stainless steel straws, reusable grocery/shopping bags, reusable coffee cups, stainless steel or glass water bottles, reusable silicone bags for snacks, and using glass storage for food products. Each of these reusable items are also much better for your health and for our environment.


Join our sustainability efforts by reducing your reliance on single-use plastic bags.
