Although plastic is a versatile material with many uses, it is also concerning because it presents health risks, contributes to litter and pollution, and is challenging to dispose of. Some of the most common and problematic plastic items we deal with every day come in the form of packaging and single-use plastics. Since these items are used for a short period of time and then discarded, they contribute significantly to the increasing amount of plastic waste.

Be part of the solution by joining the Plastic-Free Challenge. Together, our actions can help protect water, address climate change, improve our health, and create a plastic-free world.

Remember that developing low-waste habits is a gradual process. Start by browsing the actions within each category, and select actions that make sense for you and your family. In this challenge, you can select up to five daily actions and five one-time actions.

    I learned that even though I have lots of good habits in place there is still a lot I can learn. I learned to enjoy the challenge of looking for ways to go plastic free. And I learned that there are still limits to what I can access easily for my business to help me remove more plastic items from our use.
