 2. Enjoy the Great Outdoors

Whether this means going for walks, cycling to work or taking a more scenic route on your way somewhere, our busy lives often lead us to overlook the simplest things like nature. Make this year one to appreciate the beauty of our surroundings, and of course, get some much needed fresh air in the meantime.

Toxins from the plastic covers can often leak into your food, so fresh food is always going to be the best option. If you can afford the extra pennies, go organic or choose locally produced food, rather than processed meals.

4. Ditch the Plastic
