It's often too easy to grab single-use plastic cutlery, especially when having lunch on-the-go. However, single-use plastic cutlery is easy to avoid with a much better reusable alternative.

Swap to reusable cutlery

If you often grab lunch on-the-go then a reusable set of cutlery is a must for your work place or when out and about. It’s also much easier than using flimsy single-use plastic cutlery.

There are many options to choose from, whether you opt for a reusable bamboo set for your backpack or handbag, or choose to keep a set at your place of work. It all helps to reduce the amount of single-use plastic.
