This month, join the movement to reduce plastic consumption in your life.
Here are some tips from Plastic Free July to get you started:
- If you are still able to use reusables where you live, make sure they are ready (and clean!) and accessible (like having your shopping bags in the boot of your car or by the door, and keeping your coffee cup or drink bottle in your bag);
- If reusables and bulk shopping aren’t an option for you, think about how you can reduce plastic in your kitchen – ditching the single-use glad wrap, or perhaps trying to make some things from scratch to avoid the packaging;
- Plan and prepare meals and snacks ahead of time, so you don’t get caught out;
- Enlist your friends, colleagues, and family members to keep you accountable and do the challenge with you.
