I walked on the beach here in Australia yesterday morning after the farmers’ markets; it was wild! I’ve never seen the water so high, and I wouldn’t swim in that ocean if you paid me money; it was thrashing, and whirling.
Still, I pounded my way up and down for 45 minutes, as I’m beginning training for a 4-day hike… but that’s another post (and hence the fairly ugly new boots I’m breaking in, and old shorts- sorry ‘H’, I know you don’t really like them. *grins)
The point is, I began to pick up bits of litter/plastic. I always do, but this time, perhaps because of the storms and rain we’ve just had here, there was much more.
Which reminded me of this fantastically-informative, well-laid out, beautifully-photographed blog I like to follow called The Zero-Waste Chef.
Whose recent post was called Go Plastic-Free in 2018 (or Close to It). Please check it out, and let yourself be inspired.
Let’s do it together! What ways do you think you could easily reduce your plastic consumption? Here’s my top 3:
- Take my own shopping bags to the supermarket
- Use beeswax wraps instead of plastic wrap over your food (remember that post I did HERE about how easy it was? It truly was)
- Use bamboo toothbrushes- did you know that every toothbrush ever used EVER is still in existence?
