Start right now and you‘ll see that it‘s actually easy to reduce plastics. It benefits the environment and your health. Shift from single-use culture to a mindset of reuse. Shift from toxic to truly biodegradable or recyclable materials. Shift from throwaway attitude to an environment without plastics. 
Make little changes, spread the word and encourage others to reduce (micro)plastics.
