Plastic can be really useful, but its impact on the environment is huge; the different types of plastics, microplastics, and additives are harmful to animals and probably to humans too. To reduce the amount of plastic that we are in touch with every day, we all need to go on a plastic diet. Our updated, convenient app helps you find solutions for the worldwide plastic problem while at the same time advising you to make choices that are better for your own health.
Think about everything you have touched today. Your toothbrush, the shower curtain, your laptop, your telephone… We can’t avoid it – we are surrounded by plastic. The material has become so ubiquitous that we believe that we can’t live without it anymore. But the new My Little Plastic Footprint app helps you reduce the amount of plastic in your everyday life. It gives you ideas and challenges you. You can work out the real-life challenges of avoiding plastic with the help of tips and questions that the app provides and, before you know it, you are making a difference. So, do something good for yourself and for the world – go on a plastic diet.
