We are an ordinary family, in an ordinary house, in ordinary suburbia. We are busy working parents with rarely any time, let alone sanity. What can we mere mortals do to help prevent there really being more plastic than fish in the sea by the time our six-year-old is in her thirties?
These are the very simple steps we have taken so far, when our journey to un-plasticking our lives started just earlier this year. We have honestly hardly noticed the impact on our lives, or even our pockets, but the impact on our bin has been astonishing.
Thank you for taking a look.
