It’s World Environment Day today, and the focus is on how to beat plastic pollution. Plastic is around us everywhere in our daily lives as consumers – plastic drinks bottles, plastic bags, food containers, cling film, coffee cups. And as parents we probably come across it even more than the average individual. Think of the extra food we need to buy, baby wipes, nappies, straws for drinks, balloons, party bags, plastic toys, cartons of milk. When we go travelling or exploring, the logistics of getting out there as a family often outshadow the need to cut back on plastic. We go for speed and ease over sustainability. In this post, we look at easy ways to beat plastic pollution and adventure responsibly.
