138 Some of my biggest challenges this Plastic Free July with Mariska Nell

We are in July!! July for me usually means Plastic Free July and making sure I change some of my own habits during the month. This year I had a few items that I have not yet found great alternatives for and decided I will take them on for the month and see if I can go without having to purchase cheese, milk, cream or yoghurt packaged in single-use plastic. Halfway through the month and I had already been a failure, but for sure learning out of this.

During this episode, I share with you my struggles and some solutions that I have found. I also share with you some tips that can help you with your own Plastic Free July journey.

About the author, Mariska

Hi and welcome! My name is Mariska. I am originally from South Africa, but now call the world my home. I am an artist, designer, environmentalist, podcast host and speaker.

I started the Mama Earth Talk podcast in 2018 to share some of the things that I learned about just how easy it can be to reduce your impact on the environment. This then quickly grew into a forum that showcases the amazing things that many people are doing to make the planet better, and further into a source of hope and inspiration for many. A few of the amazing guests include Zero Waste Queen, Bea Johnson, Claude Silver, Kathryn Kellogg and zero waste chef Max La Manna.

If you do not already I urge you to follow me and my journey on social media (@designbymariska), and to refuse, reduce, reuse, recycle and rot your own waste using the handy tips I post!
