How does one live a life without plastic? After learning about massive mounds of plastic waste floating in oceans across the world, Taina Uitto sought to find out.
First, she inventoried all of the plastic in her house, covering the floor of her house’s front room in the process. Then she purged. Uitto is now three years into her quest of plastic-free living. She shares her story and tips with the Vancouver Sun. Also, websites with tips and products for a plastic-free lifestyle are available, such as Life Without Plastic.
What do you think are the sustainability benefits and tradeoffs associated with a plastic-free lifestyle?
