En­vi­ron­ment Min­is­ter Stephen Daw­son's tips to cut sin­gle-use plas­tic at home:

Wanneroo Times - - Special Report -

1: Get your­self a re­us­able drink bot­tle and take it with you

wher­ever you go. You'll save money and the planet. 2: If you're a tea or cof­fee drinker, get your­self a re­us­able cup. Some shops give you a dis­count just for hav­ing a re­us­able cup. 3: You don't need to line your bin with a sin­gle-use plas­tic

bag. 4: Avoid buy­ing your fruit and ve­g­ies wrapped in plas­tic. They

don't need to be. 5: Vote with your feet and speak up. Tell the su­per­mar­ket man­ager how you feel about their plas­tic prac­tices and you want to see less sin­gle-use plas­tic in your lo­cal shops.
