10. Apps To Guide You This Plastic Free July
Download My Little Plastic Footprint, create an account, and monitor your plastic-free diet. It gives you a to-do list for Plastic Free July and the visuals are so engaging to make sure you reach your plastic goals. Plus, you can calculate your plastic index and compare it to your country’s statistics. Talk about a useful app!
It also has so many quizzes to make you an expert on this movement and drive change in your community. Trust me, they’re really addictive.
Beat The Micro Bead is a quick way to find if a cosmetic product is harmful. Scan the ingredient list to detect microplastics and sign the petition for the EU to ban microplastics in cosmetics. Both apps were developed by the Plastic Soup Foundation, where you can donate to make sure their efforts are amplified.
