New Year, New Habits? Join us to make this year the year to ditch single-use plastic.

As 2023 draws to a close, I thought I'd use this week's blog to encourage us all to go a step further with our new year's resolution than the usual exercise more or eat better. Why not think beyond ourselves and think about the planet? There's so many ways that we can reduce our plastic consumption - let's make 2024 our year to give single use plastic the boot!
  • Get Schooled: Plastic 101
Before anything else, you need to get schooled. And Google is your friend here. Look up the impact of plastic on our environment, check out those jaw-dropping stats, and get to know the life cycle of plastic. Trust me; a bit of knowledge is the secret sauce to sparking change.
  • Reality Check: What's Your Plastic Scene?
Now, let's take stock of your daily plastic habits. Notice those single-use culprits like water bottles, coffee cups, and food wrappers? Identifying them is the first step. It's like a game of plastic hide-and-seek, but way more rewarding and once you start making yourself aware of your own plastic consumption you will inevitably start thinking about alternatives.
  • Be a Reuse Rockstar: Swap Out the Plastic Drama
Let's make the swap! Say hello to reusable water bottles, coffee cups, and shopping bags. They're like the VIP pass to the eco-friendly club. And hey, ditch those plastic containers for snazzy glass or stainless steel ones. Your lunch will thank you, and so will the planet.
  • Plastic Be Gone: Just Say No
Time to channel your inner eco-warrior! Politely decline those plastic straws, pick products with less packaging, and be the champion of eco-friendly alternatives. It's like a game of "No, thanks, I'm saving the planet today."
  • Eco-Friendly Shopping: Use Your Power as a Buyer
Let's talk business—eco-business, that is. Support companies that champion sustainability. Look for products with minimal packaging, go for bulk options, and give a virtual high-five to businesses making the green switch. Your wallet is your ballot; use it wisely.
  • DIY Vibes: Get Crafty to Cut the Waste
Who knew being green could be so fun? Try your hand at some DIY projects. Whip up your cleaning concoctions, trade those paper napkins for reusable ones, and give plastic wrap the boot with some nifty homemade beeswax wraps. Trust me; your inner artist will thank you.
  • Spread the Word: Shout it From the Rooftops
Sharing is caring, right? Let your squad in on your plastic-busting mission. Spread the word on social media, chat about it over brunch, and be the eco-guru your friends didn't know they needed. We're in this together!
Here's to a plastic-free, eco-friendly 2024—let's make it the best year yet!
Soapy hugs,
Emma xx
