Let me just preface with the fact that I am by no means a fashion blogger. I am an artist, and this blog's sole reason for existence is to share my thoughts for inspiration and some behind the scenes of life in general...
You may have already seen the catalog, or some of these photos on social media, but I wanted to just brag on the brand a little in this blog, because I had such a fantastic time working with Vineyard Vines in all aspects. They really made a lifelong customer out of me. (This post is not paid for, or an Ad in anyway... though maybe I should have tried that angle... ha ha, oh well).
I didn't know there was a plastic- free July when I decided to set out on a plastic-free June. I just knew that World Oceans Day and my birthday were in June and I wanted to make a bigger difference this year. I am going to participate in both, and needed some direction!
The more I researched, the more I realized that I didn't want to reinvent the wheel with this blog post. There are so many great ones out there, and I'd rather just make a jumping off point to those, and all the useful products that I've found. I am just trying to figure out how to go plastic-free for a month, or two, or more, to the best of my ability. I know it is going to look different for each person, but the categories will be pretty much the same. I decided it's easiest just to give you a set of links, so that when you're ready to find alternatives in one area, you have someplace to go for reference.
Remember that going plastic or waste free is about reducing, so don't think that you need to buy a bunch of stuff to do this. For example, I will not throw away my shampoo before it's all gone, even though it might not be gone this month. I will, however, choose something from my new list of resources when it has run out, to avoid plastic consumption for the next shampoo purchase.
