Toward a Life Without Plastic
5 Ideas for Reducing Plastic Waste for Wildlife
Our reliance on single-use plastic hurts the world’s wildlife. Plastic is a growing problem, affecting countless animals in oceans, rivers, and even on land. As a biologist, I’ve chosen to spend my career saving wildlife and conserving the natural world. For the last two years, I’ve also been working personally to reduce my plastic use so I can directly affect the species I work to conserve in my professional life.
Here are five ways I’ve reduced my plastic waste and some information about my experience navigating these changes. I hope these inspire you and provide insight so you can start your own plastic-free journey and help protect the species and places we all care about.
