Consider These Tips for Using Less Single-Use Plastic at Your Apartment

It seems like single-use plastic is everywhere, from coffee cups to grocery bags. While these throw-away items are convenient for one-time use, they create a lot of waste. And, since plastic does not easily break down, items made from the material will stay on the planet for a very long time. However, there are a lot of alternative options to single-use plastic items, which will both help the planet and, in the long run, save you money as you won’t need to rebuy them as often.

To get started using less plastic, consider investing in the following items:

  • Cloth or canvas grocery bags – Not only do these eliminate the need for plastic shopping bags, they can also hold more groceries per bag, and are usually easier to carry.

  • Reusable water bottles – Buying plastic water bottles is expensive, and all those bottles just get thrown away. Instead, purchase a reusable bottle and fill it up throughout the day.

  • Bamboo toothbrushes – Just think about how many plastic toothbrushes you’ve thrown away in your lifetime. Cut back on all that waste by opting for bamboo toothbrushes. These are a much more eco-friendly option as the bamboo will decompose once you toss it away.

Follow these tips to make your Quarters apartment home a more environmentally friendly place. If you’re interested in our apartments for rent in Lady Lake, FL, contact our leasing office today. A member of our team would be happy to offer you a tour of our community.
