1. Bye Plastic Bag, Hello Gorgeous Shopping Bag
Whether we want it or not, offline shopping still is a big part of our daily routine. In order to reduce plastic use during your shopping spree, make sure you take your favourite reusable bag with you. Each time we use a reusable bag instead of a plastic one, we actively contribute to a better world.
2. Say No to Single-Use Plastics
Yes, they might make our life easier, but straws, plates, and cutlery made from plastic are harming our oceans. Try to find paper-based or multi-use alternatives. There are plenty of cool ones you can even find in travel size.
3. Use Steel or Glass Containers
If you cook at home and bring your food to work, then reusable containers should be an indispensable part of your daily life. The planet will appreciate the effort and so will your health, as plastic containers can release unhealthy substances.
4. Let’s Get Down to Work
Organize a park, river, or beach cleanup with your team! MBRC The Ocean would love to support you with needed equipment. Just get in contact with us via [email protected]
5. Say No to Microplastic Cosmetics
Avoid using cosmetics or personal care items that contain microplastics (tiny plastic chunks that are next to impossible to filter out). There are many alternatives such as biodegradable brushes, natural fabrics and even cosmetic companies that offer sustainable options.
6. Coffee to Go
Speaking of refillable, bring your own cup for coffee to-go . This is an easy and amazing way to reduce your plastic footprint. Disposable coffee cups might look like paper, but they’re usually made of polyethylene (which is just another type of plastic).
7. Be Water, My Friend
Reducing the use of plastic water bottles is a simple way to avoid waste. Instead, get a stylish refillable bottle that will reflect you and your good plastic-free habits.
8. Make It Viral
Inspire your family, friends, and co-workers to save the oceans.
MBRC The Ocean is setting an example to end this flood of waste.
Cooperating with well-known companies and organizations such as EDEKA, REWE, Aktion Deutschland Hilft, NABU, and Etos
Netherlands is part of the MBRC strategy.
