Who are the Plasticarians?

By 2020 it is estimated that 500 million tons of plastic will be produced per year, but only a part of them will be recycled. So, a new community has arisen: the plasticarians, with the clear objective of reject from their lives the habit of throwing away.

Their activity is based on replacing the plastic with other materials: bottles of water by jars of glass, plastic bags by cloth bags, or buy products in bulk and keep them in metal or glass containers.

As if that were not enough, the people who have embraced this philosophy comment that they save some money too, since they do not consume as much as they used to, in other words, they adopt a minimalist lifestyle where they live with the essentials and separate what does not have value for them.

If you are interested and you want to be more responsible with the environment using the techniques of the plasticarians, one of the advice they give is to gradually adapt to this way of life and maintain consistency.
