Today! Is a CHALLENGE!
Today! We're going to try to avoid all plastic.
I'm not talking about your shampoo bottle (Sigh of relief). I'm talking about avoiding plastic shopping bags, plastic water bottles, plastic cutlery at restaurants, etc. for just ONE day. BYO is the best thing to do here and if you can't avoid it - notice that - notice what plastics cannot be avoided and why.
Plastics are a huge pollution problem not only for our environment but also for our body. (PSA for the day: DON'T HEAT YOUR FOOD IN PLASTIC) Plastics can leach chemicals that mimic estrogens in our body leading to a whole host of health issues including cancer (google xenoestrogen if you are interested in learning more).
After one day take stock of how reliant we are on plastic. And see what you can do to reduce your dependence for your personal health and the planet's.
See you tomorrow!
