Alright, so if you’ve been following Ecoholique you know that i’ve been struggling to minimise my plastic usage. My friend Pemba suggested we do a challenge. I’m taking the challenge myself, and challenging two of my friends. Feel free to do the same.
So What Does the Contest Entail:
Everyone who takes up the challenge must not buy or discard anything made from plastic or packaged in plastic for the next seven days.
How To Play:
- TAKE THE CHALLENGE
- POST ON YOUR SOCIALS WITH HASHTAG #7DAYS0PLASTIC
- NOMINATE 2 FRIENDS
- IF YOU FAIL TO AVOID PLASTIC ALTOGETHER, TAKE A PICTURE OF THE PLASTIC TRASH YOU CREATED OVER THE SEVEN DAYS AND POST WITH HASHTAG #7DAYS0PLASTIC
Why am I doing this?
I went plastic free a few days ago for a 6 day trip, just to try it out. I faced some serious challenges. It made me realise how dependent i am on plastic. So i thought it would be interesting for other people to try it out as well. Perhaps it will generate some conversation on how to reduce our dependency, and look for alternatives.
