Today globally on March 11th 2019 I’m kicking off this 1 Day No Single Use Plastic Challenge together with one of my favorite companies out there, GlobalWAKEcup
They are a outstanding enviroment friendly company who sell bags and cups that doesn’t cost or harm the earth. The biggest problem they try to make a change to is the use of plastics. Each year 100 billion single-use coffee cups end up as landfill and that’s why their reusable WAKE products are made from sustainable, recyclable materials like farmed bamboo, stainless steel and double-walled glass. Aren’t that just AMAZING?
A LOT of the plastic we humans use ends up in the oceans where it contribute to destroying the marine life and kills tens of thousands of marine animals each year. This is something that needs to change, not next week, month or year. We talk about NOW. To make a change, GlobalWAKEcup are partners with The Marine Conservation Society in the UK.
The ChallengeAre you ready to help reducing the plastic consumption?
Can you go 24 hours without purchasing or using any single-use coffee cups, water bottles, food packaging, straws or single-use bags?
You can take the challenge on any day this year and by sharing the campaign message, your success stories, zero waste tips and (please be honest!) any epic fails with your network of followers, you’ll be letting your friends but also big businesses and government institutions know that we want to end our throwaway culture now!
