  • Mamatoyz: Plastic Free July Ideas for Children

    Every July, the month is dedicated to educating more people about plastic waste and providing ideas and inspiration for changes that reduce the amount of plastic we all use. Plastic consumption is not a new topic of conversation and this awareness month has been growing every year. The detrimental consequences of plastic to the environment has been a growing concern for many years and the future of our world relies on us all making efforts to make a difference with our consumption.

Here’s everything you need to know and some ideas to get your children involved with the conversation about plastic waste!
