I just discovered the writing of Alix Walker – Stylist Magazine on Twitter. Beyond her delightful weaving of words she shared in an article called, “The Ultimate Guide on How to Quit Plastic,” was an astute comparison to the drop in popularity of smoking and similar trend beginning for plastic. She states, “Plastic has become our newest source of shame.” Finally, and yay!
The quote that almost made me hop out of my chair and cheer was this from Will McCallum, author of How To Give Up Plastic and head of oceans at Greenpeace UK, “It’s unprecedented for an environmental issue to be having a reaction on [the current] scale. Blue Planet II was undoubtedly the tipping point; in China alone it was downloaded 180 million times.”
Be sure to read her entire article. The 20 suggestions for minimizing plastic use are inspiring and easy to implement. Every choice matters. ONE + TOGETHER = HOPE!
Our hope at Blue Life Publications is that we can harness this intention to change habits around plastic use, especially single-use plastic. By connecting millions of people practicing “Blue Life” journal writing with cues and structured support new habits become easier to sustain.
Will McCallum nailed it again, “It’s about inspiring people to become part of the solution.”
YES! That’s what we are all about. Join the tribe today and save 25% on a pre-launch copy of your Blue Life Journal. See the Table of Contents below.
