Letter: Small steps go a long way

Making small lifestyle changes can go a long way to helping the environment and reducing plastic waste.
Making small lifestyle changes can go a long way to helping the environment and reducing plastic waste.

With all the talk about plastic rubbish on our beaches and in our seas, many of us can feel that there is little that we can do individually to alleviate the problem.

But, if we use reusable shopping bags, use soap instead of hand wash, say no to bottled water and no to chewing
gum, then we can all make a small difference.

Don’t buy things that are over packaged if there is a choice and the supermarkets will soon take your views on board.

Small changes can make a big difference to the life of our planet and oceans.
