Reduce Your Use of Plastic and Save Money

The Come Clean Blog

Reduce Plastic UseThe town of Concord, Massachusetts became one of the first towns in the U.S. to ban the sale of single-serving plastic water bottles. Water is good for you; the problem is too many plastic bottles cause plastic pollution.

Plastic bottles are used as containers for water, soft drinks, detergent and household cleaners. Once we use the products, we throw the plastic containers into the garbage.

The EPA said the U.S. generated more than 34.5 million tons of plastic waste in 2015 – and only nine percent was recycled. Most plastic waste ends up in garbage-clogged landfills, where it can take centuries to decompose. According to The Earth Institute, there are also 165 million tons of plastic debris floating around in the oceans – becoming a threat to the health and safety of marine life.

Reducing the amount of items we use, reusing products and recycling help minimize the volume of waste that we generate. JAWS International has turned that concept into reality by creating a better cleaning solution for a better world.

With JAWS Cleaners, you keep reusing the bottle and just buy the refill pods. The whole idea is to reduce the amount of single-use plastic and provide consumers with high-performance cleaners and help them save money. JAWS bottles and refill pods are also recyclable and is one step toward reducing the amount of plastic in landfills.

  • Buy items in bulk
  • Replace plastic ware with reusable utensils

If you live by the three R’s- reduce, reuse and recycle – you’ll have a positive impact on the planet and save your hard-earned dollars.
