I CHALLENGE YOU: go to the store,to do your weekly shopping,and don’t buy nothing that is wrapped in plastic!
That should be your eye-opening challenge.When a lot of people,including myself,still in denial,do believe,that we clutter our planet with plastic,only when we buy a bottle of water!
Different kinds of plastic can degrade at different times, but the average time for a plastic bottle to completely degrade is at least 450 years. It can even take some bottles 1000 years to biodegrade! That’s a long time for even the smallest bottle.
Now that you are aware,hopefully,you’ll think twice on your next shopping trip.
For me,going plastic free,is a slow process.I’m not throwing stuff on a whim,I’ll just purchase better products in the future.
The most difficult part that I already noticed,is buying food.Everything that you see at a regular store,is wrapped in plastic.So I will have to find some stores,that do embrace plastic free practices,like buying in bulk,using your own glass jar,or a cloth bag,to buy and bring it home.
I’ve always have with me a cotton bag,so I don’t take any plastic bags from the store.I do take water with me in a reusable bottle.
I do understand is a slow process,and not a perfect one.But I’ve already started my journey in 2016,and I don’t plan to stop.
I can’t wait to share with you some tips,and fully inspire you.
