At Urthly Organics, we are vocal about our commitment to the planet over profit. This includes reducing all single-use plastic from packaging and distribution materials. With our focus on reducing waste, Plastic-Free July is an exciting time of the year for increasing awareness on how others can follow suit.
While switching away from plastic sounds good in theory, the reality is a lot more difficult. Where do you start? What do you look out for? Is it expensive? How do I find alternatives to what I usually buy? These are all concerns that can arise. And with plastic such a common aspect of daily life, avoidance can be a confusing process.
To help start or improve your journey, we have put together 5 tips to help you cut out excess plastic, as well as suggest some UO alternatives to single-use products.
