So, some of the go green 💚 travel tips she wishes to suggest here to reduce ⬇️ single use plastic/ paper during trips or on the go,
1️⃣. Reuse/ Refuse: Bring along a reusable bag whenever on the go especially weekend shopping & say no ❌ to plastic bag packaging from your purchases. Suggest to opt for a foldable, then it can keep in clothes pocket/ bag on the go. This definitely reduce lots of single use plastic bags especially during shoppings
Plastic Free July is a great time to form new habits and remember reusables. This kangaroo is a cute reminder to #BYObags that we had made for our state lightweight plastic bag ban which started today. Made from recycled plastic bottles these durable bags last for years. To help support the Plastic Free July Foundation use our unique link to purchase reusable from Onya Life at https://bit.ly/2tFQ9Ew. We receive a donation from each sale to help grow the movement. This design was created for the @ownyourimpactwa campaign but hope to have it available soon to purchase!
2️⃣. Reuse/ Refuse: Love 💗 coffee ☕️ / tea🍵/ juices 🥤/ smoothies🍹? Bring your own reusable cup. This definitely reduce ⬇️ lots of single use paper cups & plastic cover lids (hot ♨️ drinks) / plastic cups (cold🥤drinks)
Getting our reusables ready for the week ahead. Remember its only reusable if you have it with you so keep somewhere handy. We have been using this water bottle for years whilst some of our kit is newer. We always recommend using what you have and looking for second hand items to #choosetorefuse single-use plastic.
3️⃣. Reuse/ Rethink: To avoid dehydration during on the go/ travels? Do bring a reusable bottle/ flask whenever travelling, this definitely reduce ⬇️ your chance to buy bottle mineral water, can beverage, packet beverage etc.
4️⃣. Refuse/ Rethink/ Respect: Suggesting to conference/ forum not to use cover plastic badges
Just a cardboard name tag is good 👍🏻 ~ SiennyLovesDrawing 👩🏻 ‘s media tag from Mekong Tourism Forum 2018 attendance recently
5️⃣. Refuse/ Rethink/ Respect: Request for water 💦💧 to be served in glass bottle & cups from hotel 🏢/ hostel🏘/ guest house🏡 By requesting, you actually have sharing an alternative ways to them to reduce ⬇️ single use plastics. Or why not boil your own drinking water with the kettle provided in the hotel room?
Amazing great effort!! Bravo to https://www.pressreader.com/malaysia/the-borneo-post-sabah/20180210/281676845368494
6️⃣. Refuse: Say NO ❌ to straw when being serving with beverages in any stalls, shops, restaurants etc. You can still enjoy any beverage without straw or opted to buy a reusable straw made with bamboo / metal / pasta
7️⃣. Reuse/ Rethink: If possible, choose to dine in 🍽🍴any stalls, shops, restaurants etc. instead of packing 🥡your meals. This will sure reduce ⬇️ single use of plastic containers, plastic folks, plastic spoons etc.
8️⃣. Reuse/ Rethink: If really in the rush & require to pack 🥡 your meal, do bring along your reusable container, folk & spoon while packing your meals from stalls, shops, restaurants etc.
So, let’s start small as a go green 💚 & responsible individual cum traveller today to avoid landfill, reduce our eco-footprint & to protect our ocean 🌊 from anymore plastic pollution
