      It’s a habit I’m trying to work on – I love takeaway coffee but I feel so guilty about the plastic cups so I’m trying to make sure I always have a reusable cup handy x

    Seattle coffee offers you a discount when you bring your own reusable cup. Coffee cups don’t disintegrate because of the heating element.
    I bought some glass straws and my eco-friendly cup from Faithful to Nature and love it. The glass straws come with a handy cleaner which is quite nifty.
    You can also buy reusable net bags for fruit and veg. The plastic used for fruit and veg are probably some of the worst single use plastic.
    The cost of plastic bags was suppose to deter consumers but apparently the supply has increased. I went to the penguin festival in Simon’s Town two years and Two Oceans Aquarium was there to highlight the plight of sea creatures and the effect of plastic. This made me change immediately.
    Spreading awareness is key!
