Go Plastic Free with These Sustainable Businesses
Updated: Dec 1, 2022
This July, we are thrilled to be included in Elate's Plastic Free database of businesses to help support your sustainable goals. We've shared their blog post below with permission. Check out their original blog post here and go plastic-free with these sustainable businesses.
Beginning in 2017, Plastic Free July has acted as a movement to inspire folks around the world to pay attention to their personal plastic consumption during the month of July and beyond.
We believe that every sustainable switch, no matter how small, makes a positive impact. By supporting eco-conscious brands like the ones below, you can help reduce your personal plastic consumption all year round.
