1000 Flowers for the Planet - #530 Decline Plastic Cutlery
When you buy takeaway (take out) food and they pop the plastic cutlery into the plastic bag, say “no thank you” and let them keep their cutlery. It’s as simple as that. Single use plastic is an environmental killer. When you take your food home to eat, you have your stainless steel cutlery at hand. There’s no need to use plastic cutlery and chuck it in the bin, and there’s very little effort in remembering to tell the person at the food venue that you don’t need the cutlery. These very simple actions make a huge difference to the planet. Remember to decline plastic cutlery whenever possible.
