How can you 'un-plastic?'

Plastics have become a staple in our way of life, but their inability to break down, or biodegrade, has a devastating impact on our oceans. We all like to think we are being responsible with our plastic consumption, but chances are good that there are still several ways you can improve how much plastic we use in our lives. Here are some areas in which we can all make simple substitutions. And you may have other ideas that you can help.
