The task of trying to live a more eco-friendly life can sometimes seem daunting and an almost insurmountable task. It is so much easier to just take the easy way out sometimes and just use the single-use plastics and live with the waste that it results in.
But little actions can cause giant ripples. Take a small bit of action here and there. Pick up a piece of rubbish when you go for a walk. Say no to a bag at the store for something you can carry in your pocket or in your backpack. Remember the enviro-bag when you go shopping. Sometimes these little things can go a long way :)
