To kick off Plastic Free July 2019 we're going to focus on getting started and will look at some simple and easy first steps you can make towards a plastic free lifestyle.
It can feel really daunting when you first set out on your plastic free journey as you will notice that PLASTIC IS EVERYWHERE!! You may start thinking 'what difference can I make, I'm just one person?' however consider this - if we all made small changes to reduce our plastic consumption think of the impact we can make collectively.
Don't stress if you are not doing it 'perfectly', none of us are or ever will be. I love the quote below by Anne Marie Bonneau. It helps you put things into perspective when things aren't as 'perfect' as you hoped!
There is no such thing as 'zero waste' - we will all produce waste. It's about considering what waste we produce, how much of it and what we can easily avoid! We can all work towards minimising our waste, particularly single-use plastic, and the impact that it has on our environment.
If you're looking to reduce your plastic consumption and start living a minimal waste lifestyle. What better way than to start with the big four!
There are four single-use plastic items that are a major contributor of waste in landfills and our oceans, yet are so easy to avoid. So what are the 4 worst offenders?
