    There are several things that we could do as students to reduce the use of plastics in our daily life. Firstly, opting for using a fountain pen would be one of the easiest things to do. As students, we cannot forgo the use of pens as it is an essential part of our daily life. But the amount of waste generated by these plastic pens is extremely harmful to the environment, therefore switching to fountain pens reduces the plastic waste generated. Secondly, try to reuse the things that belong to you. For example, use a steel bottle instead of a plastic one as this would last longer than the latter. Encourage your family members to carry their own water bottles during travels to avoid buying single-use water bottles. Thirdly, one could get creative with the plastic waste that you throw away. Empty-used plastic bottles could be used to grow saplings or even small flowering plants. Next, carry your own shopping bag that you can keep reusing so as to avoid the accumulation of plastic bags each time you visit the local shops. Spread awareness amongst friends about how harmful plastic is to the environment and on the need to practice the three Rs – Reduce, Reuse and Recycle. So try to reduce the number of plastic items you buy, reuse the things you possess and give the plastic waste for recycling.
