"My boyfriend and I have already been trying to reduce unnecessary waste. But after watching A Plastic Ocean, we were sure that we had to change our behaviour towards the use of plastic and reduce it to a minimum.⠀
The fact that we already buy in organic shops and at local farmers markets helps us a lot to eliminate plastic, but the main issues that I need to face in the upcoming weeks are hidden plastics, finding alternatives to conventional make-up, some veggies and other groceries that only come wrapped-up in plastic and of course our major weaknesses - snacks and sweets!⠀
How am I preparing? With heaps of produce and tote bags, DIY toothpaste, a bamboo toothbrush, a shampoo bar, soaps, DIY alternative dry shampoo... and there is still a lot more on the list to try out!"⠀
Our intern Manon's taking us along on her #PlasticFreeJuly journey next month. Who else is taking up the challenge?
