This past July, I took the “Plastic Free July” Challenge. Founded by Rebecca Prince-Ruiz, the organizations vision is “seeing a world free of plastic waste.”
That’s a pretty lofty goal.
While I don’t think we will ever live in a world devoid of plastics or plastic waste, I think we all can at least do our part to help reduce and minimize the impact plastics have on our environment. I am not going to argue whether plastic is “litter” or “pollution- that’s not the point.
The point is to care for the planet. Keep it as clean and beautiful as we can. That is our charge. That is our responsibility.
This is the first part of the challenge. Assessing my plastic usage. The next video will take a look at how I did.
So check them out. Take the challenge. If nothing else it will at least help you be aware of how much plastic you actually use.
