A SUSTAINABLE LIVING BLOG
Welcome! I'm a Mummy of 3 with a passion for reducing plastic usage and helping others to do the same. I set up Plastic Conscious Mama to help share tips on how you can begin your journey by making small affordable swaps, one a time. I found that in just 6 months, I managed to drastically reduce my family's plastic footprint, without breaking the bank. Some swaps are more costly than others, but almost every single one will save you money in the long run and more importantly will propel you towards leading a more sustainable lifestyle.
I am a realist and know from experience that starting out can be daunting and overwhelming. As a busy mum, I know how hard the parental juggle is. For this reason, I talk about being plastic conscious instead of zero-waste. Life, whether you are a parent or not, is often a crazy rollercoaster and perfection is not always achievable, so I decided to swap out one plastic product at a time with the simple aim of being better each time. This approach worked for me and is how my journey continues to be successful. We don't need any more pressure in our lives, but we DO need to reduce our appetite for plastic if we want to save our planet and make it a better place for future generations.
Whether you are just beginning your plastic conscious journey, or have been on it for a while, it's great to welcome you to the Plastic Conscious Mama club!
