Sorry this post is a little late today...as you can see, the blog's had a little bit of a redesign! Hope you like it!
An easy plastic-free switch to make is your toothbrush. If you think your toothbrush might need replacing during Plastic Free July, try one made from bamboo!
My husband and I like the ones from Brush With Bamboo. I like how transparent the company is about the materials it uses. The handle is made from bamboo, and while the bristles are not compostable, they are made from a safer plant-based plastic.
If you aren't familiar with Plastic Free July, take a look at this post. Basically, it's a month-long challenge to reduce the amount of disposable plastic you use. It's a great starting point if you just want to give cutting out disposable plastic a try.
My first Plastic Free July was in 2013(!), and this month I'd like to highlight some of the things I do to reduce my plastic use, and some struggles. Many things are part of my routine at this point (buying in bulk, refusing plastic silverware, etc.), but I am not perfect, and I always find this challenge to be a good time to refocus and look at what trash I am actually producing.
