Nowadays, there is public clamor to ditch single-use plastic products in favor of natural, eco-friendly ones. Plastic waste is fast becoming a widely recognized problem that various groups are inciting people to make little changes their day-to-day life to help the environment.
Going green doesn't necessarily have to be costly. There are simple, easy steps you can take to reduce your carbon footprints that can greatly impact the world without making your life overly complicated.
Change Begins at Home. Most of us human spend most of our time at home a third of our lifetime eating. That is why switching single-use plastics to eco-friendly home items can help reduce plastc waste problems and make a difference.
Now, I was able to get affordable eco-friendly products from Berde4Mama.for our home. These Include bamboo spoon, fork & knife, and bamboo straw. They sell Biodegradable Brushes (Php 15 each) with which to clean the Bamboo Straw (Php 25). I also got a Cloth Pouch (Php 25) to put my bamboo cutlery and straw when I'm on the go.
I also prefer to do homecooking. Aside from less food packaging wastes, choosing home-cooked meals over fastfood takeouts would mean that my family is eating healthier.

Avoid shopping waste. Do bring a reusable tote instead of using plastic bags.
When we throw something away, it goes somewhere. Trash are stored in landfills, and some even find its way to our oceans. It is bad for the environment and the overall health of our planet.
Stop the use of single-use plastics (wrappers, cups, bittles straws and bags). Reduce, reuse and recycle.
Clean and Stock Greener. Next time you go to the grocery, do examine the materials lists on the merchandise you buy.
Purchasing your toiletries and cleaning supplies shouldn’t be costly. Berde encourages everyone to switch to less-toxic products as you run out of current stocks.
