With the production of plastic increasing exponentially each year, it's not surprising that non-biodegradable material is a staple ingredient in many commonly-used household items. According to National Geographic, eight million tons of plastic are disposed of into the ocean each year, which creates a grave health risk for marine life, as they often get tangled in or suffocated by the plastic waste. With the current state of the environment being in such dire need of help, individual responsibility for what we buy and what we throw away is crucial if we want to see positive changes to the environment's overall failing health. From switching out your toilet bowl cleaner to bringing your own bags to the grocery store, here are 25 changes you can make right now to reduce your use of plastic and do your part to live a eco-friendly life.
