It’s a popular tip that can help us reduce our plastic problem.

How it helps

First, thrifting is a great way to find unique items at a cheap price. You can also make money from your trips to thrift stores by selling clothes, unwanted furniture, and other items. Companies like thredUp allow you to shop from the comfort of your home.

This helps keep perfectly usable items out of landfills and reduces air pollution caused by methane caused by piles of trash and junk that turns into litter.

Reducing plastic consumption is especially beneficial since petroleum products do not naturally decompose. They break down into microplastics, which can harm humans, wildlife and ecosystems. That’s why it’s also important to learn about recycling options in your community.

So, say goodbye to plastic plant pots, and add a distinctive touch to your home with glass plates and other interesting alternatives. Plastic plates are prone to cracking from the sun and can leach toxins into your soil—a terrible problem if you’re growing something edible.

What everyone says

There are many ways to get rid of your trash that may be someone else’s treasure, and becoming more savvy about reusing things can boost your mood and help you make a difference in your community.
