If you're not familiar with this month's challenge, it's all about reducing our reliance on single-use plastic. We often don't even realize how much plastic waste we are generating, whether it be plastic bags when you run into the supermarket, plastic straws every time you grab a quick soft drink, a plastic water bottle or that item you just grabbed with the excessive plastic packaging... it all quickly adds up before you know it.
There are many things you can do to help you live plastic-free. I think one of the simplest things to start with is reusable bags. One thing I do in my own life is stock my truck with a few reuseable bags that way if I have an unexpected shopping trip or grocery run, I don't need to get any unnecessary single-use plastic bags. I absolutely love our Jungle Vine bags because on top of them being durable enough to use again and again, when the time comes (a long time coming btw) and they are ready to be recycled.. they are 100% biodegradable!
I know we are halfway through this challenge, but if you haven't started yet, I encourage you to just start now. It's always better late than never. I think anyone who is even more mindful of their single-use plastic is on to something great. We need to stop criticizing ourselves when we don't do things perfectly and start acknowledging the small steps we take every single day towards our goals... after all its the little changes we make that all add up.
