Plastic Free July
We saw a post on Instagram the other day and wanted to share it with you.
Join the challenge and ‘Choose To Refuse’ single-use plastic during July.
By encouraging people to be more aware of their plastic use, we can create a cleaner world for generations to come.
There are small changes you can make right now in your everyday life to make a big difference to our planet. And here at The Yoga Factory, we're here to help!
Always carry a reusable shopping bag with you, put one in your bag so on that quick pop to the shop you can say no to a 5p bag - saving the pennies and the planet
A really easy one we can start doing right now is to say no to plastic straws. If you can't live without a straw there are metal or bamboo reusable straws you can carry with you instead.
Carry a reusable coffee cup - contrary to belief are not recyclable due to their plastic lining AND save money on every cup of coffee you buy when you take in your reusable cup... WINNING!
Buy bars of soap and shampoo - cut down on unnecessary plastic waste while cutting down on nasty toxins and chemicals that come in most shower gels and shampoos.
Switch from plastic water bottles to carrying a reusable, fillable water bottle. There's even some that keep cold drinks cold and hot drinks hot, so you're killing two birds with one stone ;)
Avoid landfill waste
Reduce your eco foot-print
Protect the ocean
