Saving the environment

My pledge would be to continue using metal/higher-density plastic water bottles and fabric reusable bags instead of single use plastic bottles and plastic bags. Although the lower-density plastic bottles are considered as being 'reusable', they expire after a certain time and after a certain number of uses they need to be thrown out which makes them no longer reusable. This makes it very difficult as it takes up a lot of energy to recycle them. I will also continue using my own high-density plastic containers and keep cups when food buying coffee on campus instead of purchasing food in takeaway containers and buying coffee in takeaway cups.
