Here are some tips for reducing plastic waste:

• Use reusable bags as many times as possible (not just a few times).

• Reuse any plastics you have as much as possible before throwing them out.

• Avoid using film plastics, such as those clear bags you see in the produce section of the grocery store (TIP: Invest in reusable produce bags, most grocery stores sell them).

• Ensure all your recyclable­s are rinsed out before recycling them.

• Don’t leave plastic bags lying loose in your car - keep them secured.

• Send letters to your local MLAs or politician­s lobbying for stricter single-use plastic bans.

• Advocate for increased Extended Producer Responsibi­lity across different markets.
