7GA Personal Climate Action Center Action of the Week!
There is so much work to do to heal our planet that it can feel overwhelming to determine where to start. That’s why 7th Generation Advisors launched the Personal Climate Action Center, a new initiative designed to encourage people to take individual action against climate change.
Tomorrow is July 1 and did you know that July is Plastic Free July? The challenge is to start to eliminate single use plastic for the month of July as much as you can. One great way to do this is by choosing a laundry detergent that doesn’t come in a plastic bottle.
A few of us at 7th Generation Advisors have started using Tru Earth laundry strips to avoid the single use laundry plastic bottle. Since the detergent comes in the form of strips, no plastic bottle is used—instead they come in a small envelope that is great to travel with as well. This eliminates the plastic bottle from potentially ending up in our landfills or oceans. In addition, it’s lightweight which results in less transportation pollution. 94% less transportation pollution to be exact!
Tru Earth estimates that if everyone switched to laundry strips, one billion plastic bottles would be eliminated; 700 million plastic bottles would be kept out of landfills; and enough truck fuel would be saved that is equivalent to taking 27 million cars off the road for the day.
So what a great way to participate in Plastic Free July—start using Tru Earth laundry detergent strips! Even better, Tru Earth is having a sale July 1 – 7 AND Tru Earth is giving 7th Generation Advisors 20% back for each purchase made through this link.
