Have you seen the video of the man who decided to wear the trash he generated over a 30-day period? As we approach the end of Plastic Free July, we have a similar suggestion: Save, somewhere in your house, all the plastic waste (whether recyclable or not) you generate for an entire month.
Throwing our waste into a recycling or a trash bin allows us to ignore the impact of our consumption habits: Everything disappears as if by magic. In contrast, accumulating it all in one place can help us visualize our contribution to the plastic crisis and encourage us to make greater changes.
And, if you want to inspire others, you could also make a video of your experience!
