Plastic Free July Day 11

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.
