Did you know that an estimated 14 BILLION pounds of garbage is dumped into the ocean annually, 80% of which is some form of plastic?! This plastic is killing off marine life and polluting a once healthy, thriving ecosystem.
Plastic-Free July is a global movement created by the Plastic Free Foundation to reduce plastic pollution worldwide. For the entire month of July, participants pledge to refuse single-use plastics and use more sustainable alternatives instead. Looking for a way to support and create awareness for this movement, we are happy to announce that we have launched a Plastic-Free July Giveaway on our Instagram with some pretty amazing sustainable brands. Our giveaway includes the Fractal Yoga Top and Leggings from Wolven Threads, Bamboo toothbrush, cotton facial rounds, tote bag, loofah scrubber, shampoo and conditioner bar from the Zero Waste Store, a Black Obsidian Water Bottle by Glacce, Crystal Grid Gemstone Palette Eyeshadow from Aether Beauty Co, Reusable Grocery Bag by Chico Bag, Rose Gold Razor by Bareaya, and our Water Bottle Bag in Poppy Pinatex. As part of our giveaway, we asked our customers to share how they’re planning to be plastic-free this month and we were so impressed with their answers that we wanted to share a few here.
