By 2025, it is estimated that there will be one pound of plastic for every three pounds of fish in the sea. It’s a scary statistic, but there’s something being done about it this month.
The new movement, plastic free July, is a cool way to remind everyone that their everyday practices have a huge effect on the welfare of the environment.
It’s vitally important that the public start to think about how they can start to reduce the amount of plastic they use on a daily basis and are given simple, effective methods which they can incorporate into their lives.
It’s unrealistic to ask someone to stop using their car and cycle everywhere they go. This is just never going to happen. However, ask someone to buy toilet roll wrapped in paper rather than plastic, they’re much more likely to make that change.
Small, easy adjustments will compound into profound, positive effects on the way you live on this planet.
So, please look into this month’s movement and try to make small changes (like using a bamboo toothbrush like me) and use #plasticfreejuly to spread the word and make a difference.
