#plasticfreejuly is just less than a week away! For those of you who are unaware of this challenging campaign, it aims to familiarise people with our toxic addiction and the growing global problem of
We're all guilty of it. Consider every piece of plastic you've ever had to purchase, food wrapping, shower gels, product packaging, drinks bottles, carrier bags.. the list is endless. Now consider that every single piece of plastic you've ever come across is still on this planet, somewhere.
Out of sight, out of mind.
Every day on Instagram many of us are guilty for only showing the beautiful side of nature and not the scars. Scars that we are responsible for. So I believe it's time we take some responsibility. There are many alternatives to plastic. But we are so USED to plastic that we're often blind to our use of it. It's very easy to develop a sense of apathy when it comes to the plastic problem we have created as people, but.. To quote a great woman - "You cannot get through a single day without having an impact on the world around you. What you do makes a difference, and you have to decide what kind of difference you want to make." -Jane Goodall
Dear friends and followers, as #plasticfree July begins in one week, I urge you to give it a go too. It's never too late.
Start with small changes. #startwith1thing
search for plastic alternatives, don’t buy single use plastics, reject the big 4 (straws, bottles, coffee cups and bags)
RE-use, fix or repurpose. BE that 'difficult person' and insist on plastic alternatives. Because change starts with each and every one of us, it’s our problem, our world, our responsibility. Every small decision we make can make a big impact somewhere else in this world, somewhere hidden under the sea. 🦈🐋🐬🐢🐟🐠🦑
