Davin Lengyel, Ethical Ocean, Week 2

Davin Ethical Ocean plastic waste

Name: Davin Lengyel

Week: 2

Personal Info:

Hey, I’m Davin from the Ethical Ocean team (www.ethicalocean.com). I live in a house with three other people. I work at home as well.

Total items: 16

Total weight:

Items: Recyclable

Items: Nonrecyclable

What items can I replace with plastic free or less plastic alternatives?
I noticed that I hadn’t really changed my habits regarding plastic. I would tell myself “don’t buy that bag of chips, go for a snack in a cardborad box”, but wouldn’t carry through. I could certainly have rplaced the 4 chip bags with plastic free alternatives.

What items would I be willing to give up if a plastic free alternative doesn’t exist?
I have been trying to stop drinking pop anyway, so that’s something I could give up if there were only plastic containers.

What items are essential and seem to have no plastic-free alternative?

What lifestyle change(s) might be necessary to reduce my plastic consumption?
My snacking was really the plastic consuming behaviour I can control that contributed to my plastic collection in week 2. That is a behaviour I can change – healthier, fresher snacks.

What one plastic item am I willing to give up or replace this week?
No chip bags.

What other conclusions, if any, can I draw?
