Alternatives for the home

Sometimes it’s difficult to know what we can replace everyday single-use plastics with.

That is why at Plastic Free, we have prepared the following table of more sustainable alternatives. We have based this on products that we use every day in our homes and that generate a lot of plastic. As you will see, many of them were used by our parents or grandparents, but with the arrival of single-use plastic they were relegated to the background and even disappeared.

We are all immersed in an ever more frenetic pace of life, working all hours, taking care of our families, paying for our cars, our mortgages, sometimes struggling to make ends meet. It’s easy to be taken in by the comfort of single-use products. And we don’t deny that they can make life easier, but it’s important to look beyond this to what really matters: how long this product or container will linger in our environment, how many people may get sick from its toxic contents, or how many animals could die from ingesting it.

Therefore, at Plastic Free we encourage all households to make small changes to their consumption habits, like using refillable water bottles, lunch boxes and canvas bags. Because our oceans, the organisms that live in it and the future generations of our planet will appreciate it.
