Plastic Free July has started today! Some of you may or may not have heard about Plastic Free July before. Plastic Free July is a global movement engaging people to refuse any single use plastic during the month of July and beyond!
It may sound difficult or overwhelming, but it is actually a simpler change in your lifestyle for a better outcome between yourself and the environment. Every change does matter. Big or small. The key importance to having a successful plastic free July is consistency!
Here are some helpful tips to help you start plastic free July this year.
1. Swap your plastic kitchen brush to a coconut based kitchen brush
Our kitchens are a hotspot for waste and environmental harm, but as more and more of us are embracing a greener lifestyle, there are many ways we can all make changes and introduce eco-friendly alternatives into our lives.
Our Bamboo Kitchen Brush is completely plastic free and made from a bamboo handle with sisal bristles. They are biodegradable and highly durable. They are also naturally antibacterial, non-scratch and are the most sustainable alternative to plastic brushes. Whether it be washing dishes, scrubbing pots and pans, or cleaning surfaces, there’s a sustainable brush alternative for that! Replacement heads are available, simply switch out as needed.
2. Refuse plastic dental products
There are a number of sustainable, natural dental flosses on the market – free of plastics and are biodegradable. Our Dental Floss is made from cornstarch-based resin, coated with Candelilla wax and flavoured with Spearmint oil. It comes in a natural bamboo case featuring a twist cap to ensure safety, a metal cap dispenser and can be reused with floss refills. Packed in a fully compostable and recyclable cardboard box.
3. Refuse single use food storage
What you can do to eliminate this plastic food storage such as cling wrap is avoid buying prepacked veggies, and food and choose to bring your own reusable food storage! There are heaps of alternatives to this such as Compostable Freezer Bags, Reusable Cloth Food Bag, and much more.
4. Engaging with the community
Share Plastic Free July ideas with your community! Share it with your family, friends, coworkers and people surround you!
