My #plasticfreejuly was ruined on the 1st of July.
I still have my braces and it involves a LOT of single use plastic. Special plastic toothbrush. Special small plastic tooth brushes to clean under your braces. Special plastic floss threaders. Plastic holds the metal onto your teeth to make the braces work in the first place. Retainer? Made out of plastic (at least mine has glitter in it??!!?????).
PLASTIC. PLASTIC. PLASTIC.
They come off next week! And my teeth will be looking straight and beautiful again, to the detriment of Mother Earth.
So I’ll need to make some other lifestyle changes to make up for it! Stay tuned for the next edition of #plasticfreejuly, where I’ll share how I’m turning the house into a 100%-new-plastic-bag free zone!
leave a tip in my tip jar!
