A Plastic Free July Challenge...
Jul 1, 2019 —
You’ve heard from us on how to reduce plastic use the “easy” way (think reusable water bottles, straws, and bags), but for this Plastic Free July we’re challenging you to take it one step further with these unconventional switches. Go plastic-free and help save the earth with these 3 lifestyle changes:
- Bring reusable produce bags to the grocery store or farmer’s market, and avoid those flimsy plastic bags. Choosing produce with less plastic packaging is always a good way to go too.
- Make the switch to bar soap! Choose personal care products that don’t come in plastic bottles. Every year, Americans use 552 million plastic shampoo bottles. Bar soap and shampoo bars in the bathroom are a great place to start.
- Time to shave? Opt for a safety razor (made of steel) instead of a disposable plastic one. It saves money in the long-run too!
As always, you can also make a difference by calling your California Representative, sharing this petition, and supporting policy that prioritizes the health of our neighborhoods and natural environments. Happy Plastic Free July to all our fellow change-makers!
