From food packaging and clothing, to pipes and hospital equipment, plastic is a part of our daily lives. To help counteract the negative effects of ubiquitous plastic use, it is helpful to reduce or eliminate our dependence on single-use plastic such as water bottles, grocery bags, and straws. As part of their commitment to care for our common home, Catholic Rural Life challenges us to make the month of July Plastic Free. Participants are challenged to avoid single-use plastic products, including shopping bags, cups, straws, and packaging.
