We cannot recycle our way out of the plastic problem and so Plastic Free July is here again to challenge us to change our ways.
Every small change that we make really does make a difference in reducing our single-use plastic waste and so I will be sharing as many of my plastic free tips as I can over the next few weeks. But in the meantime if you need some inspiration the Plastic Free July – Be Part of the Solution has some great tips and I have included a quick list of ideas that I have previously written about below.
I would say that the easiest ones with the biggest impact would be to try out the milkman, visit your local refill shop, try some plastic free period products or to simply just make sure that you remember to use a refillable water bottle or coffee cup when you are out and about.
Even after 2 years of changes I still have quite a few single-use plastic products lurking in my house and so I will be using this month to renew my efforts to try to find a few more sustainable alternatives to them or perhaps even to see if they are necessary at all?
More to come……
