Did you know that every single piece of plastic ever produced still remains somewhere on earth today?
Before Ben and Brooke decided to take some time away from their Slow Home Experiments, they had considered making July the month of living plastic free, to coincide with Plastic Free July. And while they’re not running an official experiment this month, in today’s hostful episode they decide to take the Plastic Free July challenge anyway. After all, it’s an area both of them can afford to improve on, and there’s nothing like an outside challenge to motivate.
In today’s episode they talk about the challenge itself, as well as the areas they think they’ll do OK in, the areas that will challenge them (cheese!) and some of the changes they’ve already made over the past year.
There’s a lot of practical tips for anyone hoping to adopt a plastic-free lifestyle, as well as a whole lot of recognition that it’s not an easy shift to make.
Head over to the blog to see a full list of the changes they’ve already made, as well as the changes they’ll be working on during July, as well as links to websites, products and resources mentioned in this episode.
