The challenge is to switch 2 plastic items you use to more sustainable materials (glass, stainless steel, wood, aluminum, etc.) in 2 days.
WHY? Because most people are unaware that plastic is a huge issue, not just to our planet, but our health. Plastic will NEVER break down. 2oz. of plastic will ALWAYS be 2oz. of plastic & can only be recycled or upcycled so many times. When plastic is used for food or skin care containers, there are health concerns because plastic can leech, especially when warmed up. BPA is not the only harmful chemical in plastic, it's just one that has come to the public's attention.
Here are some ideas to help you get started:
- plastic cups to reusable glass or stainless steel containers
- plastic hampers to wooden baskets
- plastic baskets or bins to wicker storage containers
- plastic disposable diapers to cloth diapers
- plastic grocery bags to reusable totes
