Plastic Free July; Learn how to say no to plastics!
"Think about it. Why would you make something that you’re going to use for a few minutes out of a material that’s basically going to last forever, and you’re just going to throw it away. What’s up with that?"
It makes absolutely no sense. Think about it; Do you ever stop and ask yourself why should I refuse single-use plastics?
Sometimes, we choose to be comfortable with "autopilot mode" without realizing the subsequences of our actions. As we all heard about the insane facts about plastic pollution, there is needless to say more than- JOIN THE MOVEMENT! and no, It’s not about recycling (that takes up way more energy than you can imagine) so don’t feel good just by throwing your empty iced tea plastic bottle into that blue bin.
Plastic-free July is the perfect boost to get you started and tap into the zone of the 'waste less consciousness' we all need to be part of.
This month (and life from now on, really) is about making small conscious changes that make a huge impact if we all do them.
We recommend creating a list to start noticing how many single-use plastic items you use on a regular day. This list can be items that you literally use for less than 5 minutes (cups, lids, silverware, straws, candy wrappers, produce bags, etc.) or items that last a little longer but in the end, they’re also single use plastics (shampoo, toothpaste, toothbrush, beverage containers, food wrappers (cheese wrappers, to-go containers, yogurt cups, etc.).
Next, place a star next to at least one item you can commit to stop using. Try to commit for this month to gain perspective of your plastic use reduction.
In addition, pledge in the https://www.plasticfreejuly.org/ website to understand more about the impact of people who are choosing to go plastic free and zero waste.
Beside dedicating our own everyday life for plastic free living, we commit to sharing every week on our Social media stories inspiring brands that are plastic-free.
Do this for the planet, it’s crying out for help from each and every one of us.
We need to take action. Not tomorrow, not soon, but NOW.
