Plastic-Free July is the month to try a better way. A time to give the oceans a chance. A time to be rid of the mess of plastic in our environment and join the communities that are having fun while showing us the way to trash reduction.
One ton of plastic bags equals 11 barrels of oil. Scientists predict that by 2050 there will be more plastic in the oceans than fish. Meantime, turtles, whales, fish and birds are choking on the plastic we use to transport our groceries.
And there are brilliant alternatives. Communities are making their own re-useable bags. Clever companies are offering bio-degradable starch bags, containers and party dishes. Let’s get rid of plastic at every opportunity and give Nature a Chance.
