The Plastic Free July challenge

plastic free july

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 much in consumer habits. At least I think they do. I guess my dilemma bag will tell me at the end how much single-use plastics I use.
