Reducing Waste Advice For September
Each month Tammi, our clean ocean campaigner, brings you a new and interesting advice to reduce waste & help protect the ocean in your everyday life. Here is tip number 9 for 2021:
Avast Ye Scallywags!
What do you think? I've got what it takes to be a pirate right? You best be practicing your pirate speech ready for Talk Like A Pirate day next week! Dust off your pirate hat and boots and get ready for a full day of grunting, grog and booty.
Enough of that, onto the this months tip for reducing waste at home. Last month I encouraged you to take the big step and switch to a Stainless Steel Safety Razor and if you did make that switch last month I would love to hear about your experiences with a new safety razor. Email me at email@example.com.
This month I want to encourage you to get the most out of your recycling, be it at home or work. Many of us are already committed to recycling as much as possible, we use the terracycling schemes that are available as well as the basics - glass, cans, plastic and paper. But what about your work, friends, family, it's time to call for more actions, though we may not be able to recycle our way out of the plastic pollution problem, recycling is still an important way to get the most out of the resources we use. Recycling is often peoples first introduction into the world of reducing waste and using resources responsibly and from there the next steps begin to seem less and less daunting.
We have recently added these Recycling Bags to our store and you can get 10% off with the code RECYCLE at the checkout.
What's on September 2021 - Ocean Helper
Thanks to your support in August we were able to donate over $80 to Surfers Against Sewage to help support their fight against plastic pollution and sewage in the ocean. In September we are excited to be supporting Project Seagrass for the first time, they are working to research, educate and restore seagrass meadows, tirelessly working on seagrass conservation is incredibly important in the battle against climate change.
This month we are focusing on Seagrass as an incredibly important habitat within the ocean. You can learn more about Seagrass in our last blog piece here.
Coming up this month we have the annual International Coastal Clean Up Day on the 18th, we'll be sending you an email closer to the time on what to look out for when you are at your local clean up. The following day on the 19th it is Talk Like A Pirate Day, that's one that everyone here at Ocean Helper is very excited about and we are sure you are too!
Rounding up the month we are celebrating Lobster Day on September 25th, around the world many will be celebrating eating lobster but we'll be taking a different angle on the day...
