Are you doing the Plastic-Free July challenge? If so, are you finding it difficult or easy?
Here’s where I stand on the matter: It’s more difficult than I thought it would be.
Many of you know that my partner Ben (who I’ve now dubbed Eco Warrior Prince) and I decided to test the plastic-free waters and participate in the challenge to raise awareness of just how pervasive plastic is in our lives.
Only 15 days into the challenge and it has been an eye-opening experience to say the least. We are mindful of our eco footprint already so we can only imagine how ordinary people doing the challenge must be feeling!
While there have been some successes such as finding a local butcher (Ben eats meat) who has been accommodating of our plastic-free request and discovering certified organic glass bottled milk, the plastic-free lifestyle journey is not as easy as we had hoped.
Check out this 5 minute video to learn how we’re coping mid-way through Plastic-Free July:
We’d love to hear from you: If you’re doing the Plastic-Free July Challenge please leave a comment with details of your own journey. Let’s inspire more people to kick their plastic over-consumption habits to the curb!
