SHE Plastic free
Plastic has its amazing uses. It's hard to imagine a world without it. But sweeping changes are needed by us all in order to avoid destruction to the planet and our bodies. Plastic has now been found on every beach in the world and by 2050, experts say there will be more plastic in the ocean than fish - especially if nothing changes.
New to the issue of plastic? Looking up your game? Looking for plastic-free product recommendations? This is a great place to be!
Here are some resources to help us all be #plasticfree whenever possible. If you take it one choice at a time, one day at time, the difference on your body and the planet can be incredible! (No pressure, no judgement, no perfectionism. Just celebrating every WIN!)
THE REAL PROBLEM WITH PLASTIC WATER BOTTLES
ARE REUSABLE SHOPPING BAGS MAKING YOU FAT?
WHAT'S THE FIRST STEP?
Walk along most beaches in the world and it quickly becomes obvious that there is an unprecedented level of plastic waste invading our oceans and shores. But there's even more less obvious impacts - including millions of micorfiber plastics washing off our clothing and rubbing off our shoes - and effects on our health and hormones.
The problem can seem too overwhelming. But the first step is just to CHANGE ONE THING. Get mindful of one item you want to start consciously saying "No" to whenever possible to remove it from your life.
if you want proof that small changes add up, look no further than the tiny plastic straw. Americans use 500 million disposable plastic straws EVERY DAY. (That's not even the rest of the WORLD!) Reusable stainless steel drinking straws are an eco-friendly way to help eliminate and the first change we recommend anyone make on their plastic-free journey.
