Updated: May 6

Ok, Let's start with a quick poll!

without peeking below, how many of the 5 r's do you already know?

  • 0%5 - I'm a pro environmentalist

  • 0%4 - I'm almost there, the 5th is in sight

  • 0%3 - I'm on the journey and heading for the top

  • 0%2 - I've made a start but need some inspiration

so what are the 5 r's, how do I embrace them and how easy is it to make a difference? lets dive straight in as this is all super easy and will leave you feeling great for making a difference.

Plastic pollution is a serious problem that is threatening our planet and all its inhabitants. But there are solutions, and we can all make a difference! By embracing the 5 Rs, we can reduce our plastic consumption and waste, and help protect the environment.

Refill: Instead of buying new plastic water bottles, bring your own reusable bottle and refill it. This simple step can save hundreds of plastic bottles from ending up in the landfill or the ocean.

Reuse: Use reusable shopping bags, containers, and utensils instead of single-use plastic ones. This can significantly reduce your plastic footprint and save resources.

Share: Borrow or share items that you only need occasionally, such as tools, party supplies, or camping gear. This reduces the need to buy new items and thus, reduces plastic waste.

Repair: Repair broken items instead of throwing them away and buying new ones. This not only reduces waste but also saves money in the long run.

Regenerate: Support companies such as ghost fin, ebb & flo

Patagonia, passenger Clothing, finisterre and products that use sustainable materials and production methods, and opt for products that are made from renewable resources.

Refuse: Finally, refuse single-use plastic items whenever possible. Say no to straws, plastic cutlery, and other unnecessary plastic items. This will not only reduce your plastic waste but also send a message to companies and policymakers that we need to do better.

Let's all do our part in reducing plastic pollution and protecting our planet!

Thank you as always for supporting and reading.
