6 Ways to Clean Up Your Act – Eufora International

"People, Planet Friendly”, more than just a slogan - it's a lifestyle choice.
It's a decision you make to be mindful instead of wasteful. It’s the small changes and shifts in our daily lifestyle that make big waves to secure a better future.

It’s time to break up with single-use plastic  

It’s time TO

break up

with single-use plastic  

It’s been a toxic relationship for years and it’s time to move on. Single-use plastics end up in landfills, oceans, lakes, rivers and not only that, they distort other beautiful parts of nature. Everyday you have a choice. Choose the future of our planet and its people over convenience.

Join us with these simple Planet-Friendly Practices that you can start implementing in your daily routine.

Did you know that recycling practices vary depending on the company and location? If you fail to follow the guidelines it may make the entire bin ineligible for recycling.

Single-use travel items that are used once and thrown away add up quickly! Reuse and refill a travel set of reusable travel bottles and containers can help cut down on single-use, travel plastics. Check out the Clean Getaway Bag featuring travel sized bottles made from PCR (post consumer recycled) plastic.

Grab and go, take out, and delivery options often come with single-use plastic containers, cutlery, and a plastic bag. Pack your lunch at home in a reusable bag or lunch box. Also, opt for fresh fruits and veggies and bulk items instead of products that come in single serving cups.

The disposable trend has moved from plastic to paper straws. Take it one step further and BYOS (bring your own straw). There are plenty of options, you can even get one custom made from Etsy.com.

Over 1,400,000,000 plastic water bottles are thrown away daily! Bringing a reusable water bottle with you wherever you go can greatly reduce your personal impact and also encourages you to stay hydrated throughout the day.

Whether you live by a beach, lake, river or even in your neighborhood, there are plenty of organizations that regularly conduct clean-up events. Here in San Diego, CA - we partner with the Surfrider foundation and I Love a Clean San Diego on local beach clean ups. 

Not seeing any organized clean ups near you? You don’t have to go with an organized group. Start one! All you need are some gloves, bags and people to join! Set a time and let your friends, family and co-workers know and enjoy an early morning walk to clean up your community.
