How to Be Eco-Friendly on a Student Budget
Thankfully, it seems like everybody has clocked on to the fact that we need to start treating Planet Earth a lot better than we have been doing. We can all do our bit, and it’s not just bold and expensive moves (like getting solar panels) that make a difference – anyone and everyone can get involved, including students like you.
Here are some simple and reasonable ways that you can do your bit.
Avoid single-use plastic wherever possible
We all know that single-use plastic is harmful to the environment, but it is quite hard to avoid when we’re food-shopping. Milk bottles, fruit boxes, meat trays, drinks bottles, carrier bags, and so on – it all adds up. And despite increased efforts to recycle across the world, the fact remains that millions of tonnes of this single-use plastic ends up in our oceans each year.Share
