If you haven’t already, there’s no better time to start your sustainable-living journey than next month – Plastic-free July. And we’re here to help you get started with a fantastic giveaway. But more details on that in a minute. Stay with me.
We all know the perils to the planet posed by single-use plastic, it’s choking the life within our oceans, which will have hugely detrimental ramifications for the whole planet – and ultimately to humanity.
This July, make “choose to refuse” your motto. Plastic bottles, bags and takeaway containers, which we use for a few minutes, are designed to last forever, but we can’t afford to place this burden on Mother Earth any more.
It’s known that, until this point, the Earth has been able to regulate its climate and environment through natural destruction and regeneration. But now we are in a geological age where human activity is driving climate and environmental change rather than nature. It’s called the Anthropocene.
It’s not all bad news though, awareness is spreading. According to the Plastic Free July website, more than six out of 10 of us are already refusing plastic shopping bags, avoiding pre-packed fruit and veg, picking up other people’s litter and avoiding buying bottled water.
To support Plastic-free July, we are giving one winner the chance to begin or help continue their everyday plastic-free living journey with a prize pack worth more that $200. All you have to do is:
1) Follow @kalai_collective on Instagram and find the plastic-free July giveaway on our wall.
2) Repost it on your wall to share it with your friends, with the hashtag #kalaiplasticfreejuly.
The competition closes midnight July 6, 2018. Good luck and, remember – “choose to refuse”!
