July 1st starts the 6th year of the #plasticfree challenge which has been spearheaded by the wonderful Marine Conservation Society here in Scotland 🌊 🦀 Want to join me???
The purpose of the challenge is to bring awareness to our plastic use and help us make some kind of effort to reduce our use of plastics or even #goplasticfree if we are feeling especially courageous.
In our house, being entirely plastic free isn’t realistic quite yet, but we have made some “microsteps” by recycling and reusing as much as possible. We use metal straws & cloth shopping bags and we have a keep-cup each for our beloved take out coffees. There is SO much more we could be doing though, this is where the Plastic Free challenge will help.
What is one small step you could take to make (and keep making) a difference to the plastic waste crisis?
Please share your ideas with me in the comments to help us all find a way to help the Oceans 🌊❤
To sign up to the #plasticfree challenge go to www.mcsuk.org/news/join_plastic_challenge
Also, remember back in May when we were talking about how helping others works really well as a microstep you can take to help your own mental & emotional health?
Well, being a part of the #plasticfree challenge and taking a microstep toward helping marine life by reducing the plastic waste threatening them can REALLY help us feel like we are making a positive difference… which makes us feel good 🌞 Win, win!
