Excitement is in the air as I am getting ready (or not) to take part in this year #plasticchallenge organised by the Marine Conservation society.
First things first let's have a look at what is it and how you can take part:
Please register to take part on the marine conservation website: www.mcsuk.org
You will join a revolutionary movement and receive info!
So how am I preparing? (am I even preparing?)
- I am NOT buying plastic things in advance to avoid buying them in June (that would be cheating...)
- I am, on the other hand, planning to do my shopping at the market and researching where will I find everyday life items (hello yogurt for breakfast... ) in plastic-free containers (glass jar anyone?). The mcs has a useful tip page (click here).
- The MCS also has a shop for many plastic-free needs (although i haven't bought anything from it yet, so i cannot comment on delivery etc. But seems like a good place to start from if you have nothing in terms of eco shops nearby!)
- I am prepared to learn and open my eyes and I know it will be tough, very tough, and i might need to swap a few things. And I am already a pretty conscious shopper...
I believe that if as many people as possible will take the plastic challenge, not only overall plastic consumption over the month of June will be reduced but it will open our eyes and make us even more responsible in the following months!
So ARE YOU READY for the challenge?
T-1! Let's start tomorrow !
I will update you half way through to see how it going!
And more updates on my twitter as well!
Comment with any questions and ideas!
