PLASTIC FREE JULY MONTH LONG CAMPAIGN!

by Rebecca Veksler on June 30, 2021

July isn't just any month. It's Plastic Free July, which means we get use power as a brand to create as much awareness and thought around the mindset of eradicating single use plastics from our life! As the founder of SoL Cups, my entire mission and vision to be a platform for inspiration and education! To empower consumers to make more conscious decisions when it comes to the brands they purchase from! That's why I created such a special, high quality glassware range of reusable products, to completely diminish the need to produce plastic all together! Life is just better without it!  

Plastic free July is so important to us as we face a crisis of single-use plastic production and consumption. Production of virgin plastic is forecast to increase globally by 30% over the next 5 years for which we have limited solutions for its end of life, where today most of it ends up not recycled, in landfill or our oceans.

Here are some fun facts for you SoLmates! 

* Plastic is made from fossil fuels.

* Because the world is cutting back on coal, oil and gas, the big FF companies are turning to plastics to save them their bottom lines. What do you know, the big FF companies are now spruiking that production of single-use plastics is set to grow 30% in the next five years. They are PROUD that plastics will account for 20% of oil consumption by 2050 and consume 15% of the Earth’s overall carbon budget.

* Plastic production produces methane. Which is 80 times more heating of the climate than C02 in a two decade period.

* We ingest a credit card-sized amount of plastic each week via our food and water.

* And, I kid you not, plastic (and other endocrinal disrupting chemicals) ingestion is causing penises to shrink and sperm to decline dramatically (look it up!).

So in saying all of that, for the entire month ahead I will be joining forces with some impeccable brands, thought leaders and inspiring humans to talk all things sustainability, health, business and how we can all inspire each other to be better humans during this vital awareness month of Plastic Free July!
