Belconnen Community Service is embracing Plastic Free July, and with a little preparation you can too!
The concept of going completely plastic free for an entire month can seem a little daunting. Once you start to notice how much plastic is in your life, it can be difficult to un-see it and you might start to feel overwhelmed by the prospect of removing it all.
But it’s not as difficult as you think. Yes, it will take some adjustments, and time to get used to, but a few simple swaps could see you significantly reduce your plastic consumption.
Simple ways to reduce plastic:
This might look like a long list but you don’t need to dive headfirst into them all. Start with one small step and go from there. Identify where most of your plastic comes from and see if there is a solution to reduce it. It’s going to take time, so go slowly and simply, and do what you can.
Where to buy in bulk:
Even some major supermarkets have a bulk aisle now, and you can often find bulk options at your local health food store. Maybe shopping in bulk is not an option for you, and that’s okay. You can still opt for recyclable packaging where possible and bring your own bags. Every step counts.
Plastic Free July is a chance to see where you can improve, and explore plastic alternatives.
