Living an eco-friendly, plastic-free, and zero-waste life ain't easy. Especially with the prolific use of plastic by companies. But we can start with little things, swapping one plastic at a time with a more sustainable and reusable option. Items that will help reduce our carbon footprint and good for the environment, so that we may be able to preserve it for the generations to come.
Remember, every small gesture counts. And this list of shops we found online will help you give up often used plastic products and help you live a more environmentally-conscious life. It's also a bonus that most of these are small businesses here in Qatar!
