We have all by now heard how bad plastics are for the environment and we know that we should all try a bit harder to reduce our plastic use but it is easier said than done and it can sometimes feel rather overwhelming, can’t it ?
That’s why we have launched the Eliminate 10 Challenge, to help encourage more people get reducing their plastic waste.
Let’s all do it together, start making positive changes by eliminating just 10 plastic items from our daily lives.
What 10 plastic items will you eliminate ( or reduce dramatically ) from your life ?
This is how to join the challenge:
1, Like this post.
2, Share this post. The more people join us, the better !
3, Leave a comment under the post with your pledge ( I will no longer buy …… ) .
Tag #eliminate10 and @zerowastewiltshire on your own Facebook/Instagram post with your pledge.
Let’s see how many people we can get to #eliminate10 with us. Go !
I’ll start, shall I ?
I will no longer buy:
- Single Use Plastic Bottles
- Plastic Straws
- Plastic Wrapped Broccoli
- Plastic Tooth Brushes
- Single Use Plastic Cutlery
- Cling Film
- Plastic Toys and Gifts
- Plastic Wrapped Sandwiches
- Single Use Plastic Bags
- Plastic Bottles of Hair and Beauty Products
It takes a long time to change our habits, so be patient with yourself.
Once you have achieved 10, you can go on to the next 10 and so on and before you know it, you are solidly on the journey of becoming plastic free. Hurray !
Don’t forget to tag @zerowastewiltshire and #eliminate10, every time you make a new pledge, so we can help cheering you on.
