Plastic-free July - Take the Challenge!
Sustainability, eco-friendly, ethical... In the past few years these keywords have become more relevant and we hear about it more often. But what really is the issue and what can each of us do? Don't think too hard; start from what you can do in your daily life!
Speaking of getting started... Have you heard of this website? We’ve talked about them before on our instagram.
Plastic Free July is a campaign led by the Plastic Free Foundation. Each year, millions of people around the globe take the challenge and choose to refuse single-use plastics. Their vision is to see a world without plastic waste.
Take a look at some of the great tips they have and let's get started! Why not take the challenge? There are much better ways than what the video showed :)
