Join us and make a SPLASH!
Quit all single-use plastics for the month of July. Sign up with us to complete the #STMplasticfreejuly challenge. Throughout the month we will be holding GIVEAWAYS and CHALLENGES with awesome sparkly plastic tips. WHOO! Those who do an exceptional job will win a Mermaid glass water bottle who complete this Mermaid Plastic Free for the Sea Adventure!
GIVEAWAYS: Throughout the month we will be giving away BAGS, SHIRTS, STICKERS, NECKLACES, BOTTLES, ARTWORK, LEGGINGS (made out of up-cycled water bottles) and more! We will be sending information about each giveaway through emails and on our social media accounts.
The challenge is quite simple. Attempt to refuse single-use plastic during July. "Single-use" includes plastic shopping bags, plastic cups, straws, plastic packaging...basically anything that's intended only to be used once and then discarded. Remember it's not going to be easy! It's a challenge, not a competition so do not worry about being perfect.
Collect any unavoidable single-use plastic you buy. Keep it in a dilemma bag and share it with us at the end of the challenge. Best shares we will add to our blog!
Pledge to be "Plastic Free for the Sea" and receive your Mermaid tips, discounts, and giveaway information by Friday July 5.
Refuse to use single-use plastic for July!
