Our terrible habits and how to end them
Plastic pollution creates problems for wildlife and the human population. Every time we use plastic we are harming the environment by creating more garbage that eventually ends up in the ocean. Straws and plastic bags are one of the common types of plastic that are making sea turtles go extinct and harming other animals. Plastic is a huge danger for animals because they often mistaken it for food. To help reduce plastic pollution its important for everyone to start using reusable water bottles instead of plastic bottled water. Also when going grocery shopping taking reusable cloth bags would be a huge improvement towards plastic pollution. Every store now charges for plastic bags in order to reduce the use, but that still doesn't make any changes as people still continue to buy them. I think the best thing to do is completely eliminate the option of plastic bags and only sell reusable cloth bags.
