Hello! Have you accepted the Plastic-Free July challenge yet? Are you asking yourself what the hell is Plastic-Free July?
Well, since 2011 people around the globe have been celebrating Plastic-Free July as a month to raise awareness about plastic pollution (YUCK) *and* to challenge ourselves to use less plastic.
It’s my first Plastic-Free July and I’m. So. Excited. (!!!)
Okay, but here’s the deal: I just recently started my green living journey. Which means I’m not ready to go completely plastic-free. Like, at all.
But guess what? Plastic-Free July is for everybody, including all of us newbies and/or slackers.

Plastic-Free July is going to be so much fun, you guys.
We’re going to take the Top Four pledge (or maybe give up plastic completely??), and we’re going to do our part to save the planet.
