Plastic Free July is a global movement that helps millions of people be part of the solution to plastic pollution – so we can have cleaner streets, oceans, and beautiful communities. It all started as a campaign launched in 2011 by Plastic Free Foundation, in local government in Western Australia, and is now one of the most influential environmental campaigns in the world. Millions of people across the globe take part every year, with many committing to reducing plastic pollution far beyond the month of July.
Our mission as a zero waste shop is to help reduce plastic consumption as much as possible and this type of initiative contributes to raising awareness among those who have not yet joined this good cause, but also to remind ourselves that the battle against plastic reduction it's from day to day.
Where to start? At Little Plant Pantry we help you to implement small changes that will lead you to achieve a more sustainable life. For example, you can start by using dishwashing soap bar instead of buying the liquid version that comes in a plastic bottle. Or maybe you can save the plastic containers that you already have and refill them with the cleaning products that we have in our cleaning station. And, as you already know, you can always come to our store with your own containers, bags or jars and refill them with goodies, avoiding buying those same products in plastic packages, whose degradation takes centuries!
Remember our motto: recycle, reuse, refill. That's the key! Are you ready for the challenge?
