The past couple of years, we have been seeing the effect of increased plastic consumption and the damage it does to our environment. Growing up, this was not something that worried me. I am ashamed to say that I was one of the many who never monitored my plastic consumption behaviour. As I got older, I read and watched the adverse effects plastic brings about to our planet. That's when I decided that I needed to do something and I cannot be this ignorant. I have been conscious of my plastic consumption over the last 3 years. Some of my actions are as follows - opting to use metal straws, bringing my own reusable bag to supermarket, investing in KeepCup, using biodegradable plastic bags for trash bin instead of plastic bags. I know that I have much more to learn and change. I am taking this pledge to be more conscious of my plastic consumption and encourage everyone around me to be more mindful of their plastic consumption.
