World Environment Day is Tuesday 5th June, let’s raise awareness.
How to play the World Environment Day Tag
The major issue of plastic pollution has been gaining much awareness lately, thanks to numerous documentaries and high profile campaigns. Have you seen our post about plastic pollution and doing your bit? As we wake up to the level of destruction to our planet caused by single- use plastics, people are increasingly switching to reusables. Hooray! Join us in this global game of tag by sharing photos of your reusables to help #beatplasticpollution Let’s play!
All games have rules These ones are very simple…
1. Take a photo of between 1- 3 reusable items that you personally have switched to, in order to help tackle plastic pollution.
2. Caption your photo with a short message to raise awareness.
3. Also include your top tip for beating plastic pollution.
4. Share your photo and caption, along with your top tip, tagging at least three other people.
5. Please also link back to me in your blog post and tag me on social media, thank you!

My Top Tip
Start small and make simple changes. Every little bit helps – from stopping using straws to switching out handwash and shower gel in plastic bottles and using soap instead (like we are), each household that does this will make a difference. And of course, recycle any plastic you do use. This photo quote says it all for us:

Tomorrow is World Environment Day. We’ve been tagged by @freddiesmummyuk to share our tips for reducing plastic pollution.

We’ve started using bars of soap instead of handwash and shower gel in plastic containers. We are also re-using carrier bags of course (preferably cotton rather than plastic), and re-using drinks bottles. Simple things.
What switches have you made to help #BeatPlasticPollution? Show me your reusables!
