The truth about ocean pollution
Do you think you could go a whole month without using single use plastic?
Did you know that 100,000 marine animals die from plastic pollution in our oceans each year?
Think about that for a while, let it sink in….. 100,000 innocent marine animals that mistakenly eat plastic instead of their real food. Plastic that has come from us on land somehow at some point.
How can you guarantee that the litter you see on the street as you walk to work won’t end up in our oceans when most likely it will.
I know you probably won’t pick up every piece of rubbish you see on the ground all day every day. You have places to be, people to see, things to do. I get it.. your busy.
How would you feel about changing the way you see and use single use plastics instead? How would you feel about learning about how each choice you make on a daily basis can either positively affect or negatively affect our oceans and environment.
How would you feel if I told you, you can make a positive impact and a healthier future for your kids just by making a few simple changes that won’t break the bank or crush your unique style?
I know that I have all the right information to keep you motivated and inspired this July so you can ditch the single use plastics with ease and know you have done all you can to create a clean planet for your children.

Let me tell you a bit more about Plastic free July, what is it? And what does it mean for you?
Plastic free July was founded in 2011 by a group of legends in Perth, WA. Since then it has become a global event with thousands of planet loving peeps joining in the challenge to create a better planet for our future generations. Its aim is to raise awareness of the amount of plastic in our lives by encouraging people to eliminate the use of single-use plastic during July each year.
The Challenge is pretty simple. Attempt to refuse single-use plastic during July. “Single-use” means anything that is intended to be used once and then thrown away. For example…plastic shopping bags, plastic cups, straws, plastic bottles and plastic packaging.
If refusing ALL single-use plastic sounds too daunting you can do the TOP 4 challenge instead, this challenge means refusing plastic bags, bottles, takeaway coffee cups and straws.
• Have a go at refusing single-use plastic during July.
• It is a challenge, not a competition. Don’t worry about being perfect, try your best and have fun doing it!
• Collect any unavoidable single-use plastic you buy. Keep it in a bag and share it with us at the end of the challenge.
• It’s up to you regarding how long you participate. You might decide to go plastic-free for a day, a week, a month or longer! However long you choose will still make a contribution.You can register for the challenge HERE or just following along with the Tips you will receive from me.
