While we were planning this healthy and sustainable practice, we encountered a pleasant surprise. The dates we delivered our new bottles to their owners coincided with #PlasticFreeJuly, a movement born in Australia and spread to different countries in a few years.
Plastic Free July is an organization that aims to discourage consumers around the world from single-use plastic items as much as possible. Although plastic plays an important role in our everyday lives with its practicality and accessibility, the organisation delivers the message that we can reduce our burden on nature by adopting habits such as using water bottles.
You may have already adopted greener choices such as using a tote bag for shopping and not asking for single-use plastic cutlery in your food deliveries. If you want to improve your lifestyle towards a more sustainable approach, you can find suggestions to reduce the use of plastic in your home and workplace at plasticfreejuly.org.
