Plastic Free July is a global movement to reduce plastic waste. Encourage your family each week to reduce or refuse 1 single-use plastic item. Little ones love to be involved too. Turn this month and each month after into a learning opportunity. Every small change makes a difference and adds up.
Try choosing a reusable container over a ziploc bag or an apple or orange instead of an individually packaged snack. Bring canvas totes into not only the grocery store but also Target or your local hardware store. These little changes become good habits and make your kids feel empowered and inspired to do good.
Some of our staff favorite swaps to reduce single use plastic use are:
ChicoBag produce bags to replace plastic at grocery stores for loose veggie/fruit bins.
- Coming soon: The Bumbleride Upcycled Tote! (pictured) Rather than sending fabric overstock to the landfill, we chose to make something sustainable and practical. Our new tote is made from excess 100% rPET fabric (post-consumer recycled plastic water bottles) that would have ended up in a landfill twice, but instead will hold your beach toys or farmers market haul. Available this fall.
Klean Kanteen reusable water bottles to reduce need for plastic bottles on the go.
Wean Green glass food storage to help reduce food waste and keep safe in non-toxic materials.
- Shop your local farmer's market to purchase fresh, local, loose packaged fruit and vegetables. Find a San Diego farmer's market near you.
- Bulk Bins at Grocery or Refill Stores - Search for them in your area to purchase laundry or cleaning supplies along with dry foods like nuts and dried fruits. Don't forget your own containers.
