It started as a simple conversation with my kids about how plastic is killing the turtles, followed by a frantic 30 minutes going through every cupboard in the house looking for the evil turtle killers in our home. I’ve spoken to a fair few people since then and so far, absolutely everyone has a desire to cut down on plastic, even if they’ve not done anything about it.
Going plastic free – or at least cutting down on the plastic we really really don’t need – shouldn’t be so hard. It also shouldn’t feel quite so “out there”. There is a reputation for anything vaguely “eco” that it really only works if you’re dressed in hemp cloth and preferably living an organic, vegan lifestyle. Don’t get me wrong, full respect from me for all those hemp wearing vegans, (and I genuinely mean that) but it really just isn’t me. I’ve tried cutting down on meat – I never do very well. But this, this I’m doing, I’m cutting down on plastic.
More than that, my mission is to make it easier for others to do the same. I’ll say again
IT SHOULD NOT BE THIS HARD.
And that’s my goal, to simplify the switch from plastic to non-plastic alternatives for everyone. Wish me luck…..
