Plastic Free July 2013


I am a little partial to the odd info-graphic. Are you? This one helps me to see what life might be like without plastic. I am certain my life would be better but right now the task of implementing a plastic detox would be enormous.

It is Plastic Free July 2013. Did you know? Not me, not until today. But maybe I can make a difference in the last few days of the month and refuse plastic bags, cups and other disposable items.

 Think about it. Why would you make something that you’re going to use for a few minutes out of a material that’s basically going to last forever, and you’re just going to throw it away. What’s up with that?  Jeb Berrier, Bagit Movie

  1. Have you read “Moby Duck” by Donovan Hohn? It was one of my favourite reads for last year…and this book more than anything else has convinced me to change my ways with regards to plastic. It's a great, entertaining and educational read.

  2. Irony of all ironies!!! I so loved the chart that I printed it out then found myself putting it in a plastic pocket to protect it when I stick it up in the kitchen!! At least I didn't plastify it and the pocket is reusable. 'Sigh!' [Charlie Brown styl]
