Vietnam ranks among top five Asian countries that discharge the highest volume of plastic, contributing to 8 million tons of plastic waste in oceans each year. So what should we do to become more conscious consumers? Below are my humble suggestions:
- If you’re constantly on the go, you might think about bringing your own water bottle to have it refilled anytime. A bamboo tumbler is my preferred choice.
- One substitute for plastic straws is metal straws. If you’re a fan of bubble tea, you might choose stainless steel straws, extra wide with angled bottom designed to fit tapioca pearls. These straws are reusable, washable, and able to last virtually forever.
- Why not maintaining your dental hygiene with a bamboo toothbrush? With activated charcoal infused bristles, this toothbrush is naturally antibacterial and antifungal.
- Unlike plastic and metal combs that bring plenty of static to the hair, wooden combs prevent the hair from getting static, thus slowing down hair loss and breakage. Wide-tooth wooden combs are a better option than brushes, especially if you have long curly hair since they glide through the scalp smoothly and make detangling much easier. A must-have item for girls!
