to #breakfreefromplastic! This month we're challenging ourselves to use less plastic β™³. Karen’s goals are to use glass jars for bulk purchases, to bring her own reusable produce bags and coffee mug while out shopping, and to pack lunch in a metal food container. Stephanie will try to bring her own bags to the farmers market and only use her refillable water bottle. How will you limit plastic usage?
Plus, they are super useful to help us learn the best way to store all kinds of food (without and plastic!). Don't forget, if you are looking for some great plastic free food storage containers, we have a roundup on the site with some of our favs. Thanks for creating @ecowithem_ and for sharing @mamavation πŸ’š #becausehealth #foodstorage #plasticfree #masonjars #zerowaste #foodwastefeast #useitall #Repost @mamavation ・・・ July is #plasticfree month!🌎 On the heels of both @starbucks and @hyatt banning straws, let’s celebrate!! πŸŽ‰πŸŽ‰ I’ve been pondering how to get rid of more plastic in our lives and I wanted to share with you this image from @ecowithem_.

That's because over time plastic breaks into smaller pieces we call microplastics. These pieces can be so small that they get through our water filtration systems or fish think they look like food. That means we as humans are then drinking or eating them, too. So, not only does plastic litter make our beautiful waterways look pretty junky, but it's harming our health. Every time we remember to bring a reusable bags or bottle instead of getting a plastic one, we are making a difference in our own health the health of future generations. #plasticfreejuly #becausehealth #reducereuserecycle #reusablestraw #reusablebags #reusablebottle #byo #stopsucking #microplastic #plasticfree #Repost @mindfullychic_ with ・・・ Mindful Monday ✨ Day 16 #PlasticFreeJuly | Yes it's shocking isn't it? In addition to the obvious that means every toothbrush your parents, grandparent, everyone you know (almost) has ever used back until the 1940s is still here! 😳 Stop for a second & think about all the extra plastic in your life now... your phone cover, in the kitchen, the pen on your desk, the car dashboard - even for most people the toilet seat! We can't escape it & it's getting worse. We can change it, but we have to start taking positive actions.
You know, those random slips of paper that end up crumpled at the bottom of your bag that are really only helpful if you need to get rid of that peice of gum you've been chewing on for two hours. Well, the easiest thing you can do is just say "nope, I don't need a receipt" next time you are checking out. By not touching it, you're lowering the amount of BPA you come in contact with in a day. Yep, #BPA, that stuff that you don't want in your water bottle or canned food, is also covering receipts. Saying no to receipts, and asking brands like @Target to switch to BPA free recitps, is greatly improving your health.
