10 easy ways to cut down your plastic use right now

Since BBC One’s Blue Planet revealed how plastic is destroying the environment, there’s been a huge surge in budding eco-warriors wanting to quit it for good. 

And the good news is that it’s never been easier to do just that!

One way we can all cut down is to swap products we already use for sustainable alternatives.

That’s why The Cheeky Panda’s award-winning range of luxury bamboo plastic-free products are making such an impact.

The Cheeky Panda makes a range of tissue products using 100 per cent bamboo, which is naturally hypoallergenic and incredibly soft on the skin – even for babies and sensitive skins.

Its plastic-free range includes toilet tissue, facial tissues and kitchen roll. Hurray to that!

Bamboo is the world’s fastest growing plant – cut it down and it bounces right back, unlike trees, where tissue production has caused massive deforestation and environmental destruction.

And The Cheeky Panda’s products have already attracted a star following, with eco-warrior Joanna Lumley a big fan.

“Who knew that bamboo could be so soft and absorbent and flexible! I love all their products, and think that their stance on climate change and using all resources available is admirable,” she says. “Bravo Cheeky Panda! I think you’re fabulous.”

 

As well as switching to more sustainable products, here are 10 other easy ways you can make a big difference right now…

1. Swap to cloth

Pack a reusable cloth bag each time you go shopping.

2. Sustainable straws

If you like to sip a cocktail through a straw, metal ones are available.

3. Go for glass

Glass bottles can be successfully recycled.

4. Buy loose produce 

Choose unpackaged fruit and veg and buy and items such as pasta and rice.

 

5. Choose refill

Look for refillable beauty and bathroom essentials.

6. Coffee container

Swap single-use coffee cups for a washable cup. Most coffee bars give a discount if you bring your own – win, win!

7. Way-to-go water bottle

Buy a reusable water bottle you can refill. Give kids their own too.

8. Doggy do-dos?

Take along old newspapers to catch your doggy-dos.
