Plastic Free July 2017


Living by the sea, I see first hand how plastic pollution is making our ocean sick - plastic bottles and all kinds of packing are being spewed onto our beaches everyday.  So, Plastic Free July is a great way to challenge myself to reduce plastic consumption even more, while also taking an opportunity to speak out and highlight issues/solutions via social media too. Here are some of my posts - hope they give you some new ideas and inspiration... xo

…you might say this is the last straw - my final post for #PlasticFreeJuly...

Skip a straw. Save a turtle. Say no to#singleuseplastics. Save our seas. Speak out for the ocean. Save ourselves. It’s that simple.

Because, if you’re not already deeply concerned about plastic pollution, you haven’t been paying attention. Seriously, this is the last straw. xo
