Lexington Orthodontist Recommends Avoiding Single-Use Plastics

lexington orthodontistSingle-use plastics are ubiquitous in modern society. Unfortunately, they cause environmental damage, and it is important to take steps to reduce our consumption of these items. We can’t avoid everything, but there are some ways to do your part to make a positive impact, and set a good example for any children around you! Our Lexington orthodontist gives some advice on how to reduce your footprint and avoid single-use plastics. 

At The Store

Consider purchasing reusable cloth bags for all of your grocery shopping. They’re inexpensive and reduce waste created by numerous plastic bags usually provided by the store. Cloth bags can last years if cared for properly! 

Around The House

If you do end up getting your groceries bagged, don’t just throw all the bags away when you get home. Reuse them for things around the house, such as lining small trash cans, taking out recyclable cans and bottles, or carrying your lunch to work.

Birthday parties are another source of single-use items—consider alternatives to things such as confetti and wrapping paper. Instead of plastic confetti, you can purchase confetti made of dried flowers, which are just as festive and biodegradable! Also, consider getting reusable, fabric wrapping paper to cut down on paper consumption. 

Eating At Restaurants

Many restaurants have started cutting down on plastic straw consumption. However, some still do provide them without asking, or offer paper straws, which are still harmful. Make an effort to avoid any straw usage by telling your server ahead of time that you don’t need one. Additionally, try to avoid take-out boxes as much as possible, or even bring your own reusable Tupperware to carry out your leftovers.
