Plastic Free July:the perfect time to jump start your eco-friendly journey 5 Week Zero Waste Challenge You see it all over the news- another animal washed ashore strangled by plastic, doom and gloom stories about climate change, and the refusal of many politicians to see this for what it is: a crisis.You've seen all of this, but you're still a little skeptical of zero waste because you think about the year's worth of trash in a jar. I'm here to tell you, that is impossible damn near impossible and relies heavily on privilege. If you can do that, great! Good for you. I'm over here, though, snacking on sunflower seeds and blending spinach that I got from the supermarket (in plastic) for my smoothies. Zero waste doesn't need to be all-consuming. Zero waste is, more than anything, a mindset shift- one that doesn't cost you any money whatsoever. It's taking a breath and thinking about our consumption habits. Seem overwhelming- no worries. I've gone through it alone, but you don't have to. Join me in my Zero Waste Challenge for Plastic Free July. Over the course of the month, we'll go over: How do you even start?Do I have to DIY everything? (spoiler: you don't!)Easy eco-swaps for both the kitchen and bathroom,And more! I'm ready to challenge myself! Remember- this challenge is all about improvement and awareness, not perfection. You'll use plastic, and that's fine. We just want to be more aware of what's going on in our lives around it. Let's do this!
