It's #PlasticFreeJuly! Plastic Free July started in Australia in 2011 and has become a global movement to raise awareness about the plastic problem and encourage folks to create less waste.
It's always a super fun month, and we had plans to create a big campaign, but life got in the way and somehow it's already July 4th! So we are shifting things a bit, and will be sharing weekly tips to help you get inspired and reduce your waste.
So without further ado, onto #PlasticFreeJuly Week 1: Bring Your Own __
This week's tip is to bring your own __! From grocery shopping to beach days, we encourage you to bring your own reusables.
Grabbing takeout? Bring your own utensil set.
Whether you are grocery shopping or clothing shopping bring your own reusable tote bag!
Shopping? Bring your own bags!
Going for coffee? Bring your own mug!
Refill your reusable mug on your way to work or while out with friends! I think we've all gotten out of that habit because of COVID, so let's rebuild this habit! If you don't have a travel mug, a jar also works great!
There are also so many ways you can get create when brining your own - we would love to hear your other ideas in the comments!
