Three years living without plastic

This month marks my third year of living single-use plastic free. My year of living completely plastic free has entrenched habits and I now find it very easy to have a plastic-free lifestyle. I also find it easy to avoid purchasing multi-use plastic (with resourcefulness, alternatives can often be found).

You can start this journey too. This month is Plastic Free July.

It is an excellent way to challenge yourself if you'd like to give reducing your plastic consumption a go. It's also a very good tool for creating awareness of plastic issues (people will be intrigued by you're what doing).

There are two challenges:

  • not purchasing any single use plastic
  • not purchasing the top four (straws, coffee cup lids, plastic shopping bags, plastic drink bottles).

Visit the Plastic Free July webpage or facebook page for more details.

You can choose to do the challenge for a day, a week, or a month.
