July: Plastic Free!

July 17, 2019

I no doubt have mentioned this laudible organization before, but it bears repeating that July has been designated a month to really focus on getting free of plastic, and the Plastic Pollution Coalition is here to help us with taking the baby steps, and then, eventually, the harder steps, we need to be done with this harmful substance. As they note, plastic is a substance the earth cannot digest, and we are well on our way to having more plastic in the ocean than fish at the rate we're going. In addition, babies are now being born plastic-polluted.

 

I cannot encourage everyone strongly enough to check out their website and take the challenge to become plastic-free. Humans lived for eons without it; we can too!

 

I know, I know, easy for me to say; I have been guilty of the mindlessness that allows me to forget to say 'no straw, please' when I sit down at a restaurant, and at this point, I can see we have a lot of work ahead of us, that may seem monumental. But we can reach out to lawmakers/policy drivers and eventually make the changes needed to become plastic-free.
