I’m stoked to have teamed up with Global Wake Cup for their 1 Day Plastic Free Challenge! The idea is pretty clear, challenge yourself to go one day, just one day, without using any single use plastic. Can you do it? There are some helpful tips on the cotton tote pictured above….
If you want to find out more about the challenge, head on over to their dedicated website page: HERE and make sure you follow them on Insta: @globalWAKEcup and use the hashtag #1dayplasticfree when doing your challenge!
There is also a just giving page set up with The Marine Conservation Society where you can donate the cost of your daily coffee if you like. These guys do sooooo much work with our oceans and coastlines, check out their site if you’re not familiar with them.
You know my story, I don’t go anywhere with out my reusable water bottle (and for the whole family), my travel coffee cup, I now use metal straws in my smoothies, I take carrier bags with me everywhere and keep some in the car. And the best thing we ever did was invest in a proper coffee machine.. it was £150, however, we no longer spend upwards of £6 a day on coffee between myself and my husband (potentially £186 per month), AND we make it at home in the morning in our travel cups.. so even easier to avoid a disposable coffee cup.
My hardest plastic challenge is to do with the weekly food shop. Some of you might have seen in my insta stories that I’m testing out different supermarkets for price and plastic. My aim is to find one that offers the most products without packaging and recyclable packaging AND affordable. I will blog about my findings so far (when I can!). So far I’ve done Aldi, Sainsbury’s, Morrisons and Tescos. I am on a mission to cut our waste as a family and be more mindful of what we use.
