It’s almost Plastic-Free July time! As an environmental blogger, I have lots of things planned and I can’t wait to share them with you all ๐Ÿฅฐ This year instead of only giving out tips, I have created a Plastic-Free July challenge for everyone to join in with.

What is Plastic-Free July?

Plastic-Free July is an initiative to reduce the consumption of plastic. It started out in Western Australia and has now spread to a worldwide campaign! In 2020, 326 million people took part in over 177 countries across the world – that in itself is amazing ๐Ÿ’š

Introducing my Plastic-Free July challenge

This year, I’m super excited to announce that I’ve created a calendar full of daily challenges for Plastic-Free July! I brainstormed lots of ideas but ultimately, I wanted it to be doable for everyone. There’s no point in creating a calendar of daily plastic-free challenges if they aren’t financially possible.

The first daily challenge is to create your own plastic-free challenge for the month. For me, I have decided to switch to a more sustainable deodrant (review coming soon), but the challenge could be anything. It could be to go entirely plastic-free for the month, to make a sustainable swap, read more about plastic pollution, make more of an effort to do more litter pics. Literally anything to do with plastic!

For the whole of July, I’m going to be posting daily on Instagram with each challenge. I have even created a hashtag – #plasticfreejulycalendar and if you post a picture or a story with the hashtag, I will share it on my story! I want this to be fun whilst also making a difference ๐ŸŒ

Could this get any better? I’m glad you asked โœจ

If you subscribe to my newsletter, you can have FULL access to my freebie library launching tomorrow, included will be a checklist to accompany this calendar!

Are you going to be joining in with my challenge? Let me know in the comments <3

Best wishes, Cx
