Happy Plastic Free July! Here’s to a growing awareness that we humans have to eliminate the unnecessary use of disposable plastics from our daily routines. More and more plastic bag bans, taxes and awareness campaigns have been popping up around the world, and in the U.S., Seattle recently became the first major city to pass a blanket ban on plastic straws and single use disposable utensils. To really work towards a plastic free future, we all have to do our part. The Plastic Free July campaign is a great way for those who need a little assistance getting starting in reducing their use of disposable plastics. Accept the challenge and learn more at plasticfreejuly.org. The website provides tools and resources to help participants go plastic free and reduce their ecological footprint.
