The Plastic Free July challenge

I have decided to take on the challenge of Plastic Free July. This means for the month of July I will abstain from single use plastic.

After watching The Clean Bin Project I immediately jumped online looking for ways I can reduce my waste. I discovered Plastic Free July, deciding it would be an interesting way to see if I can cut down on how much I throw out. 

Items include shopping bags, plastic cups, straws, plastic packaging. I can already tell that the shopping bags, straws and plastic cups will be easier to avoid as they don't feature in my consumer habits at all. But the plastic packaging will be hard, requiring much research and planning.

I love research and planning so maybe this challenge won't be so hard. Who knows, maybe I will adopt this forever?
