June 5th is World Environment Day!

Let's Beat Plastic Pollution.  If you can't reuse it, refuse it!

Here are a few simple ways we can all help eliminate plastics and reduce our carbon footprint by saying no to single use plastics and replacing them with reusable options. It takes a little extra effort at first but soon becomes a way of life.

For me, saying no to plastic shopping bags was the easiest place to start. I carry bags in my vehicle and purse at all times. Next on my list is refusing plastic beverage bottles and disposable coffee cups. This is proving to be a little more challenging but "A journey of a thousand miles starts with a single step." 

 

 

The European Commission Proposes a ban on single use plastics.
