    I feel like as the month went on I started to become increasingly Aware of all the plastic stuff around me. Like spidey-sense but…for plastic. Plastic tingle. Helps my inner environmental superhero avoid plastic. Plastic Free July’s been a fantastic learning experience, and here’s hoping all your inner environmental superheroes have a stronger plastic tingle now too.  :)  Spread the plastic-free power far and wide as you carry on your quests, friends. Instill a little awareness wherever you go, whether you be working or shopping or plotting world domination.

  • Lily the Awesome 7/24/2019 11:17 PM
