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, (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!
