Staying hydrated inside and out is so important, especially during summer! But this should not come at the cost of the health of our planet. After all, caring for our planet is caring for ourselves!
Plastic Free July is a global movement to dramatically reduce plastic use this July and beyond. At this rate, the amount of single use plastics ending up in oceans will outweigh fish by 2050.
To help protect our precious oceans, we’re proud to support our friends at Tap, a mobile app allowing users to find nearby places to refill their water bottle.
This zero waste network for drinking water will ultimately reduce the amount of single-use plastic bottles ending up in oceans. Water is everywhere and Tap connects people to it in the most environmentally friendly way possible.
Download the app on iOS and Android to find Refill Stations near you!
You can also join Tap this Saturday July 21st for their Global #PlasticFreeJuly Beach Cleanup in Venice Beach, 10am - 12pm. RSVP Here or find a Beach Cleanup Near You!!
If you can't make it this weekend, don't worry. Here are 4 ways you can dramatically reduce your plastic use:
- Carry a reusable water bottle. Over 1 million plastic bottles are purchased every minute. Yeah, that's a lot. By simply carrying and refilling your own, you can make a HUGE impact!!
- Skip the plastic straw. 500 million straws are used daily in the United States alone. Opt instead for using eco-friendly alternatives like steel or paper!
- Say no to plastic bags! Each year, an estimated 1 trillion plastic bags are consumed. It's easy to bring your own reusable shopping bags and help reduce this massive number.
