It is because if you use too much plastic you may instead of gaining but losing because if you always buy plastic bag or plates for your food, you are over using your money per year just for those plastic products you needed for your kitchen so instead start reducing your plastic and start using real utensil or products.

-Reduce on using paper towel. Start buying towels for extra uses, bring one to the kitchen and tie or hang it somewhere for people to use after washing their hands or cooking in the kitchen. It helps reduce on using too much paper towel each day.
