The 3'R have changed into the 5R's. Refuse, reduce, reuse, recycle and raise awareness. My occasional blogs are a small contribution to helping raise awareness about plastic consumption. It's a journey down a long and twisty road, not a quick zip down a super highway.
The cool thing is once you start to raise your awareness- you find yourself making small but significant steps. Each week I find myself making better choices and feeling proud of the progress I have made.
Here are some great places to check out to raise your plastic awareness a bit higher.
Plastic Pollution Coalition - this is such a great site for info and tips, I love it! And they have lots of great graphics to share.
Snapshots of Simplicity- this is a reflective page with thoughtful posts including "What's in my Grocery Bag" and "Hanging Out With Seagulls".
Justgrabbits encourages folks to grab some trash, take a snap and post. Here is your chance to find out about trash all over the globe.
Plastic Free Mermaid-Kate Nelson is an Australian mermaid with lots of tips to switch out the plastic.
And finally on Pinterest
Monterey Bay Aquarium has an idea board for plastic free living.
