What if you could do your bit for the planet and save money - too good to be true? Definitely not.
We all know we should be doing more to cut down on plastics, but will often use cost as a reason not to.
But, there are plenty of differences you can make which will make it easier than you think to save the environment.
1. Get paid for your plastic bottles
Instead of tossing your plastic bottle into the recycling - why not make money from it.
Supermarkets are starting to offer "reverse vending machines".
The idea is, you take your plastic bottles to a store, put them in a machine, and in return you're given a voucher to use against your shopping.
Iceland in Mold has one of the machines, and Tesco in Swansea Marina has one too.
Iceland’s reverse vending machine accepts any Iceland plastic beverage bottle and repays customers with a 10p voucher to be used in store for each bottle recycled.
They are currently looking at whether it can be rolled out nationally.
Tesco also pays 10p per bottle - you’re able to return a maximum of 10 bottles per customer per day, and each bottle needs to be smaller than 750ml.
The UK Government is looking at bringing in "reverse vending machines" across the country as part of a clampdown on plastic.
2. Check if a refill is available
Before you buy a whole new tub or pack from the supermarket, check if there's a refill option available. The savings will reach into pounds. Here's some suggestions:
A 500ml sachet of Carex costs £1.50 at Tesco, Asda, Sainsburys and Boots but buying a pack new (250ml) costs 95p.
So, two tubs of soap will cost you £1.90 - or buying a refill for the same amount £1.50 - saving 40p.
A pack of Duck Fresh discs cost £3.50 for a pack of six. Buying a refill pack of 12 will cost £5. Bargain.
A refill pack costs £3.16 for 15m - a full pack including dispenser costs £4.40.
3. Stop buying bottles of water - fill up for free
First up, download the Refill app.
It's free, and wherever you are in the UK, it will tell you the nearest place you can top up your water bottles for free.
There are 20,000 businesses now involved and it includes hotels, coffee shops (even large chains) and there are taps for chilled water on railway station platforms.
You don't need a really fancy bottle - but if you want to invest, a reusable water bottle from around the price of £2.
In Wales, the Welsh Government has also been promoting water stops all along the Wales Coast Path.
4. Zero waste stores
These are popping up all over Wales.
The idea is simple, you fill your own bags, boxes or tubs with the items you want. You pick the quantity yourself and pay for whatever you've bought.
You can get everything from grains, rice, pulses, coffee and more, and, you'll find it saves you pounds to refill a bottle of herbs.
5. Get paid for returning your carrier bags
Some supermarkets will pay you back when you return your carrier bags.
Both Morrisons and Ocado will reimburse you 5p for each bag - even if they're not theirs - if you give them back after an online delivery.
5. Buy an eco bag you'll actually use - and stop buying new ones
Bags for Life or eco bags are almost second nature to us now, but don't forget if you pick up a 'bags for life' (usually 10p) many stores are willing to replace for free if they get damaged or broken.
This deal is available at Co-op, Sainsbury's and Tesco.
All you have to do is take the battered bag to the store to claim a brand new one.
6. Free coffee? Yes please
If you're on the go, stopping for a coffee is an almost a go to.
If you carry your own cup, it'll mean you stop using coffee cups which are really, really hard to recycle.
The extra bit of good news is, you can get money off your coffee by handing over your own cup.
Chains like Greggs, Nero, M&S all offer money off.
We've put together guides for Cardiff, Swansea and Newport with places where reusing your cup will save you money.
At some places, like The Deck in Cardiff taking your own cup can save you a whopping £1.

7. Ditch the cling film
A roll of cling film at Tesco costs £1.25 which may not sound a lot, but add up how much you use on sandwiches, packed lunches and leftovers - and it can soon mount up.
Instead, by buying reusable and biodegradable wraps, could end up saving you money in the long run.
They're made from cotton, wax or resin, and the wraps can be moulded around containers as well as food to make sure it stays fresh.
They wash easily and are reusable.
They can cost anything from £4 each or £10 for a pack of three.
8. Shampoo bars and soap
Take a look around the bathroom - if you're anything like us, it'll be full of plastic bottles, but there are other options.
Instead of picking up a bottle of shower gel, you can pick up four bars of soap at Boots for £1 - just 25p each.
In comparison, the cheapest shower gel Boots sell cost 59p.
Another alternative is to switch to shampoo bars.
Lush is one stockist - they are palm-sized, and last for between 80 and 100 washes.
They are £8 each, which we know isn't a bargain - but they do the job of three 250g bottles of liquid shampoo.
The store says over the last five years shampoo bars have saved around 30 million plastic bottles from landfill.
Green fingered? You can save on plantpots and cane toppers all by being savvy.
Use plastic bottles as cane toppers and plastic pots, like yogurt pots, can be used as starter plant pots.
In the shed, use margarine and ice cream tubs or jam jars to sort your nail and screws.
