Using less plastic
June 12, 2023

By Jasmine, Healthy Trailblazer Journal | Even though plastic is very useful, it does cause a lot of damage to the environment. I want to make sure that I don’t use any plastic utensils. I want people to know that plastic isn’t going away anytime soon, so we have to at least try our best to prevent using too much plastic. One example is using metal water bottles instead of plastic ones.
