Create plastic bag free environment – increase your well-being
When you think of the environment that you are living, your habits and how it can affect you mental and economical wellbeing maybe it is not that hard to relate it with plastic bag usage.
In most of the shops in Cyprus you will always receive a plastic bag and most of the time more than you need. Most probably you will have just one or two items in one bag even though you can fill it in with five or even more. Do you really need that? And what is next? What do you do wit
h those bags when you come back home? Most of us probably will just throw it in the trash bin (and even without separating plastic with general waste). Will you reuse it? That is just few questions that you can ask yourself.
Make small step and have at least one bag that you can always use it for your shopping? Keep it in your bag. You can purchase, make it yourself or ask someone else to make it. You can find really trendy and fashionable ones.
Little step – make a difference.
