The Realistic Plastic Pledge

Posted by Hillary Miller on

So who here likes single use plastic?

Nope. Me neither.  It’s unnecessary, harmful and really rather unpleasant.

I started trying to tackle my own use of single use plastic back in 2018 with the likes of reusable cups and bottles, but the more I thought about it the more angry I got with the waste I was creating.

So my Realistic Plastic Pledge began. In September 2018 I started my journey by doing a review of my bathroom and counted up a whopping 27 items I use regularly which have unnecessary plastic in them. One year on I’ve eliminated the majority of these and my bathroom is a nicer place to be. 

The whole point of my Pledge was to be REALISTIC so I’ve aimed to replace items with easy to use products of a similar cost. 

Switch and Ditch is the result of my pledge.
