I’ve signed up to be a part of “Plastic Free July”.
The campaign started in Western Australia in 2011. Last year, 120 million people across the globe took part in the challenge, across 177 countries.
I won’t be able to be totally plastic free but I can begin by simply saying no to the top four most prolific single-use plastics:
~ plastic bags
~ water bottles
~ take away coffee cups
~ plastic straws
I hope the month will make me take notice of the plastics I do buy, what habits I can change or products I can switch to reduce our overall household waste, to reduce our recycle bin and make a contribution to tackling the worlds plastic pollution problem.
Here is a link to their website for more information, suggestions or to sign up for the challenge.
