Reducing Single-Use Plastics - #OneSmallThingMyNI
Unfortunately we’re all getting so used to seeing the terrible images of plastic pollution around the world, that we’re almost becoming immune to them. Even statistics that tell us how EVERYDAY approx 8 million tonnes of plastic finds its way into our oceans, have lost their ability to shock. That’s why we created #OneSmallThingMyNI to highlight some of the small everyday things you can do to reduce your use of plastic in the hope that together we can motivate and encourage others to reduce, reuse and recycle too.
Never Think That You Can't Make a Difference
"The actions of just one of us may seem to be trivial and to have no effect. But the knowledge that there are thousands, hundreds of thousands of people doing the same thing that really does have an effect..."
- Sir David Attenborough
Reducing Plastics Could Save You Money on Your Daily Coffee
Most disposable coffee cups are almost impossible to recycle because of the combination of plastic and paper in their design. Many coffee shops are now offering their customers a discount if they bring their own reusable cup. But how much of a discount would encourage you to bring a reusable cup to your local coffee shop?
