It’s Plastic Free July: What you can do to go plastic free?

ROAR challenges everyone to go plastic free this month to demonstrate that yes, it can be done in small baby steps to completely cold turkey…we know some people are better positioned to go plastic free than others…to just minimizing the plastic you use in your daily life. It can be as simple as going from a single use coffee cup to a reusable mug, to bringing your own utensils to a picnic or switching from plastic straws to reusable ones.

July is a month to challenge yourself to go plastic free by taking the Plastic Free July® challenge.

Plastic Free July® is a key initiative of the Plastic Free Foundation that challenges people globally to go plastic free throughout the month of July with the hope that some of those individuals going completely plastic free from now on.

We know it is hard to go completely plastic free, but ROAR encourages the community to try this challenge out for a month and see if you can weave most of the principles of it into your daily life.

Take the challenge to go plastic free this month or for longer at PlasticFreeJuly.org. https://www.plasticfreejuly.org/take-the-challenge/

Global Warming’s Six Americas in 2020

Today, the Alarmed (26%) outnumber the Dismissive (7%) nearly 4 to 1. More than half (54%) of Americans are either Alarmed or Concerned, while the Doubtful and Dismissive are only 18% of the population. However, because conservative media organizations prominently feature Dismissive politicians, pundits and industry officials, most Americans overestimate the prevalence of Dismissive beliefs among other Americans.
