Plastic Free July

Mindy O’Brien, Coordinator, Voice of Irish Concern for the Environment (VOICE), talks to Noel McGuinness about Plastic Free July. She explains that every July VOICE takes part in this international movement that challenges us to live our daily lives without plastic. This sort of challenge shows us both the ubiquity of plastic in our everyday lives but also how many alternatives there are when we are forced to look.  Some easy wins include refillable washing up liquid, using soap instead of bodywash and buying loose where possible.
