It's Plastic Free July! And we want you to join us in reducing plastic waste in our environment.

As we all know plastic waste is past a tipping point. Now, more than ever, we are faced with the plastic dilemma: where do we put it all? This month, let's think in terms more like: how can I lessen the amount of plastic I use (that is, how can I reduce my plastic footprint?) Let's band together to dramatically reduce plastic waste this month!

There may be times when plastic is straight up unavoidable and we get it but here at Live Green Toronto we are all about providing environmental options that suit your lifestyle.

In the table below (after the jump) we've listed common, everyday plastics items and suggested alternatives – we've even linked to some of our Live Green Perks member businesses that may offer you discounts on the items.*
