- #Plastic #pollution
We're all guilty of it. Consider every piece of plastic you've ever purchased, food wrapping, toothpaste tubes, product packaging, drinks bottles, bags.. the list is endless. Now consider that every single piece of plastic you've ever come across is still on this planet, somewhere.
Out of sight, out of mind.
Every day on Instagram many of us are guilty for only showing the beautiful side of nature and not the scars. Scars that we are responsible for. So I believe it's time we take some responsibility. There are many alternatives to plastic. But we are so USED to plastic that we're often blind to our use of it. And it's very easy to develop a sense of apathy when it comes to the plastic problem we have created as people.
To quote a great woman - "You cannot get through a single day without having an impact on the world around you. What you do makes a difference, and you have to decide what kind of difference you want to make." -Jane Goodall
Dear friends and followers, as I struggle to attempt #plasticfree
July, I urge you to give it a go too. It's never too late.
Start with small changes. #startwith1thing
search for plastic alternatives, RE-use, fix or repurpose. BE that 'difficult person' and insist on avoiding plastic. Because every small decision we make can make a big impact somewhere in this world, somewhere hidden under the sea. 🦈🐋🐬🐢🐟🐠🦑
