    Plastic is everywhere in our daily lives and the need to reduce it is immediate to our future environment, especially the oceans.  I'm now more aware of my daily use and how I can change that use with new habits made over the past 31 days.

    It's definitely a challenge to use less plastic but with raising awareness it will become a habit long after this July competition ends, which is the goal.
