Instead of asking for new plastic bags every time you go for shopping, why not use your cotton bags again and again. In this way you can save the environment and reduce your cost since many shops charge you every time for the plastic bags.

2) Stop drinking bottled water

Plastic from bottled water is causing serious damage to our environment. It’s estimated that over 1 million tonnes of plastic waste are generated from bottled water. In order to avoid this drink tap water and even if you have to drink bottled water then recycle it.
