Did you discover any SUP that surprised you?
-I was surprised to learn that plastic doesn’t biodegrade even after it breaks down the the environment. I was also surprised that we consume chemicals (such as BPA and phthalates) from the SUP. I didn't know plastic has petroleum which is a non-renewable fossil fuel.
Do you think you use more or less SUP than the average person?
-I think I use less than the average person.
What SUP do you use and rely on the most?
-Food and drink containers. Although I don’t buy makeup frequently, I noticed that there aren’t many makeup products that don’t use plastic as the makeup holder.
What SUP would be the hardest to stop using?
-Probably food containers and cosmetics since some items aren’t made of materials other than plastic.
How might you reduce your dependence on Single Use Plastic?
-I have started to reduce the use of plastic bags; I use all reusable containers when I pack my lunches now. Instead of buying milk and juice in plastic jugs, we buy them in cartons. Instead of bringing a SUP water bottle to school everyday, I fill up a reusable cup with tap water. We also picked up some reusable grocery bags.
