Can you go plastic-free for a whole month? Let's find out! (Quiz)

Plastic-free July is here. Let's see if you're prepared to take on the challenge!

Suitable for eco-friendly veterans and zero-waste living enthusiasts alike, the plastic-free July challenge will allow you to do your part in fighting against plastic pollution while having a bit of fun at the same time. And, at the end of the day, that's what it's all about! Protecting the environment shouldn't feel like a chore, because, well … it isn't! Our world and its safety are of incredible importance – not only because we've got nowhere else to go (even though that should give most of those who prefer to sit on the side-lines and watch from afar something to think about), but also because this pollution is entirely our fault! 

Plastics are cheap and easy to use, but, at the end of the day, it's our planet that has to pay the price for our convenience! Well, no more! It's time we took a stand against this and maybe – just maybe –some of the bystanders will finally join in! 

What is Plastic Free July

Plastic Free July is a global initiative, headed by the Plastic Free Foundation.  Over the two short years since its conception, the foundation has managed to win a multitude of environmental awards, as well as stir the hearts of millions of people across the globe. Last year's Plastic Free July reached over 120 million people from 177 different countries, making significant environmental gains. The participants in 2018's Plastic Free July reported an average of 7.6% decrease in household waste production (about 76kg) and 5.6% decrease in the usage of disposable packaging (about 28kg). This amounts to roughly 490 million kg of plastic waste per year! 

What you can do to help

As with most eco-friendly initiatives, the best way to help out is by introducing changes in your lifestyle. The greener (and cleaner) you live, the smaller your carbon footprint will get, and the less damage you'll cause to the environment. And, for most of you, this is more than enough. However, if you happen to be a zero-waste veteran and your household is entirely plastic-free, there's something else you can do – help others out! The plastic problem got out of hand simply because of people's lack of understanding. As we noted above, plastic products are, after all, very convenient – they're cheap, lightweight and easy to use. And, if you didn't know the things that you do, if you weren't, at one point or another, exposed to the information that you've seen or read, chances are that you'd also be happily consuming plastic items in your day-to-day life! So, get out there and spread the knowledge!
