These plastic-free influencers and content creators share easy tips and tricks that can help start your plastic-free journey

By Sanjoli Arora

Plastic is all around us in abundance. It is in the things we shop, the things our products are packaged in, the things we wear (hello polyester) and there are even microplastics in our food items. So, when plastic is everywhere, how is a plastic-free life possible?

Plastic-free living does not mean that we need to eliminate all the plastic from our life in one go. It implies slowly reducing our consumption of plastic and find plastic-free alternatives. You can start small by simply refusing single-use plastic or start with a plastic-free bathroom.

Plastic-free living is definitely harder if you have to take the step alone. But what if you had a partner? Someone who could answer all your questions or share easy tips and tricks that helps stay your plastic-free journey on track. If this sounds like a good idea, then say hello to plastic-free influencers.

Not many people understood why she was doing this. She felt alone. But instead of giving up, she took to Instagram and shared her journey.

Her Instagram blog @greenfeetcleanfeet was launched in October, 2019. Soumya consistently shares eco-friendly tricks, plastic-free DIYs, and sustainable living tips with her audience. According to her, “Sustainability is not a trend, it’s just a mindset shift, it’s an effort made by an individual to consume less and consume mindfully.”

She is a big believer in composting our kitchen waste and making bioenzymes (natural cleaners) at home to reduce our waste output. You can learn to make your own bioenzyme in this video by Soumya.
