Take the Challenge to Absolutely Refuse Single-use Plastic
or at least pick a few items and begin your journey product by product. Millions of people are joining together in the month of July during Plastic Free Month to be apart of the solution to plastic solution. The Earth is literally begging us for cleaner streets, oceans, and brighter communities clear of greenhouse emissions. Will you be a part of our mission to a Plastic Free July?
In combination with PlasticFreeJuly.org, Wilco Wellness would like to encourage you to shop local for solutions. Check out some of our favorite spots in Williamson County:
- Sanctuary Holistic Kitchen – From pet food to tea; Robin has you ready for any occasion. Almost all the items are in re-usable containers and you can receive a discount if you bring them back. Just ask Robin what qualifies.
- Farm to table restaurants bring in their ingredients from local farms; cutting back on transportation emissions and unnecessary packaging.
- Farmers markets are delighted when you bring your own bags. Reduce the amount of plastic that ends up in landfills and oceans by shopping responsibly.
If you cannot shop locally, know that we have partnered with EarthHero to make finding sustainable solutions easy. Two of our favorites: – I admit, I use to be a 1-gallon ziplock bag fanatic- are BioBag Compostable and resealable sandwich bags. For the kiddos at home, this kids arts and crafts busy box is fun and educational. Visit the sustainable shop online for more of our favorite things like zero waste floss and Stasher Silicone Bag.
Be on the lookout for daily switches you can make. Convenient and low-cost options coming at you!
