Over the years we have reduced our single use plastic and waste. We tend not to drink take away coffee and when we do we use our reusable mugs. We use reusable bags when we do our groceries. We buy a local veggie box once a fortnight that has no plastic. We use our soda stream. Don’t buy soft drink. I use a metal razor. And we have wooden toothbrushes. We do these things, we have for some time and to me, these no longer require any thought.
But there is still work to be done.
And it’s a bit terrifying.
The idea of buying our food in bulk, and not in plastic bags; the idea of eliminating foods like chips and seaweed crackers; the idea of exceeding our budget is all a bit overwhelming.
So I headed over to the Plastic Free July website to tentatively dip my feat into the waters.
I found some great information, things that made this whole task not so daunting. On the website it states that you can take a small step or dive in deep.
Now, I’ve decided it’s not too daunting, and we just need to take one more step in the direction of our rubbish reduction.
What step you do think you might be able to take for plastic free July?
