REFUSE - just say no.
There is power is saying NO! Say no to extra wrapping, say no to disposable cups, take your own reusable cup and cutlery and then you can say NO THANKS! when you’re out. You are powerful. Shops take notice of what you want – if you want to reduce waste, start saying NO THANKS! Being prepared is helpful. Take your own bags for shopping, containers for other products such as deli or meat or fish, buy loose veg, unwrapped bread, choose products that don’t have plastic wrapping.
Your till receipt is powerful, use it for positive change.
