At Albatross Designs, we are committed to eliminating plastic from our day-to-day.
Similar to Earth Month, Plastic Free July is a yearly reminder to be more mindful of the impacts of plastic waste. Because, while we may all be familiar with that harrowing video of a sea turtle with a plastic straw stuck in its nose, the reality is that the plastic pollution problem extends far beyond plastic refuse. Plastic Free July is an opportunity to take time to learn more about the connection between plastic and environmental harm.
Plastic Free July also presents a personal challenge for us all to look within and strive to reduce our usage of single-use plastics, as well as share solutions and suggestions with each other on how to do so. As a green design company, we feel that it is our job to disseminate as much information about sustainable solutions as possible. After all, the more awareness is spread of eco-friendly and plastic-free options, the more accessible these options become.
To help us in this mission, we've created a challenge for the month of July called the 31 Day Plastic Reduction Challenge! This challenge encourages people to engage in Plastic Free July by presenting a single, small step for each day this month. We know that going plastic-free cold turkey can feel overwhelming. Instead, we’ve broken it down into daily steps that will help make the transition to plastic-free living more manageable and accessible. And by the end of the month, you'll be amazed at how many plastic-free swaps you've made!
We welcome you to join us in celebrating Plastic Free July and taking on the 31 Day Plastic Reduction Challenge:
