1000 Flowers for the Planet - #629 Travel with BYO Cutlery
Whilst on the topic of travel, this Flower suggestion is to take your own cutlery with you so that when you buy takeaway (take out) meals or fast food you can avoid some of the single use plastic waste by using your own cutlery. You will not only know exactly where your cutlery has been and how clean it is, you will also be avoiding further contributions to plastic waste in our environment. Let’s face it, how often does plastic cutlery get recycled? Rarely. When we’re out and about, particularly in strange towns or countries, we don’t tend to put fast food rubbish into recycling bins, unless we’re in a very organised place. So take your own cutlery when you travel and remember to say “No thank you” at those fast food outlets when they go to give you single use plastic. The savings for everybody will be huge.
