Take the Plastic Challenge with GreenPlate

Take the Plastic Challenge with GreenPlate

Greenplate is taking action on reducing plastic waste. You can too. See how using seven simple steps over seven days.

Day 1 – Don’t take the straw
This is an EASY first step. When you’re at a restaurant or a bar, simply tell your server you don’t want a straw as you are placing you order.

Day 2 – Drinks on the go
For sodas and juices, go for an aluminum can or glass bottle. For water, be sure to have a refillable water bottle on hand.

Day 3 – When it comes to the bag, just say NO!
When grocery shopping, bring your own reusable cloth bag. At the dry-cleaners, refuse the plastic clothing bag. Whenever you can, just say NO to plastic bags.

Day 4 – Change your To-Go routine
When grocery shopping, bring your own reusable cloth bag. At the dry-cleaners, refuse the plastic clothing bag. Whenever you can, just say NO to plastic bags

Day 5 – Be mindful of the packing
Be mindful of the packaging – choose less!
Try shopping on the outside edge of the store – it tends to be healthier food and have less packaging.

Day 6 – What’s in your house?
Pay attention to the unnecessary plastic in your house – don’t buy disposables when you don’t have to.

Day 7 – Reduce, reuse, recycle
Learn more about recycling and recycle everything you can.
From this day forward… Get involved! Learn more! Spread the word!

Save your health, save your money and save the environment!
