At the very least invest in getting a:
– Reusable coffee mug to use at coffee shops
– A spork to always carry in your purse or backpack
– A lunchbox if you bring your own lunch to work
– A stainless steel straw to use instead of plastic ones

The time is now.

  1. Stainless steel straws. Use these instead of plastic ones. Do you love using straws? Carry one in your bag at all times so that you don’t have to use a plastic one when it’s offered to you.
  2. Powdered laundry detergent. Buy powdered laundry detergent instead of liquids.
  3. Bamboo spork. Carry a bamboo spork with you at all times. You never know if you’re going to stop for ice cream on a hot day. If you have it with you then you can go out and eat the ice cream. Also opt for the cone instead of the cup if possible.
  4. BYO coffee mug. Instead of using a paper cup with a plastic lid bring your own mug and let the coffee shop use it instead of their own. Most coffee shops do this. You’ll also set an example to others that aren’t brave enough to do ask for it themselves.
  5. Glass containers. Store your food in glass instead of in plastic. Especially if you put the foods in when they’re warm to avoid the chemicals seeping into your food.
  6. Buy mayonnaise in glass jars instead of plastic tubes. It’s only recently that mayonnaise has been stored in plastic VS. glass.
  7. Plastic-free dental floss. An innovative product that we discussed in the podcast. A great example of seeing a need for a plastic-free alternative.

The Episode’s Takeaways

Chantal shares how she started Life Without Plastic. She noticed a need in the market because of her own needs for her son. Instead of hoping the plastic-free products would find their way to her she proactively sought them out and trusted that there where more people in need of plastic-free baby product alternatives and went for it.

If you are in the position that you’re wanting to start your own green business then Chantal advises to look around your life at all things plastic. There are more and more products being created as we speak that are 100% plastic-free. That’s an immediate niche!

Thank you, Chantal!
