Plas­tic blog bags ad­vice

Southern Gazette (South Perth) - - NEWS -

PERTH blog­ger Lind­say Miles says plas­tics are down-cy­cled into lesser qual­ity plas­tics, so peo­ple should con­sider be­ing mind­ful of what they buy, re­use what they have, and choose more nat­u­ral prod­ucts.

She held work­shops in the Shire of Ser­pen­tine Jar­rah­dale on Tuesday, May 30, en­cour­ag­ing the au­di­ence to eat more fruit and veg­eta­bles and jump on­line for tu­to­ri­als to find bulk food stores, farm­ers’ mar­kets and tu­to­ri­als for mak­ing their own pro­duce like cheese, yoghurt or even bath­room prod­ucts.

“Do I want to cre­ate waste or do I want to avoid waste?” is the ques­tion she of­ten asked her­self after start­ing a Plas­tic Free July chal­lenge, then slowly mak­ing per­ma­nent changes to her lifestyle. She en­cour­ages oth­ers to do the same through her web­site www.tread­ingmy­own­path.com.

“I feel like if you can af­ford to buy a cup of cof­fee, you can af­ford to buy a re­us­able cup,” she said.

Mrs Miles said peo­ple of­ten avoided change due to cost, time, or not know­ing how to do things for them­selves.
