THE STORY:

WELCOME TO OUR #PLASTICSWEARJAR CHALLENGE! 


EACH YEAR, THE AVERAGE AMERICAN USES 167 DISPOSABLE WATER BOTTLES AND THE AVERAGE AMERICAN FAMILY CONSUMES ALMOST 1,500 SHOPPING BAGS. ONLY 23% OF PLASTICS GET RECYCLED IN THE US. THIS IS A MAJOR PROBLEM FOR OUR WILDLIFE, OUR OCEANS AND OUR ENVIRONMENT, SO WE CREATED THE #PLASTICSWEARJAR CHALLENGE, IN AN EFFORT TO START MAKING SOME CHANGES. 


OBJECTIVE: TO BRING AWARENESS TO THE AMOUNT OF SINGLE-USE PLASTICS PURCHASED AND USED IN OUR DAILY LIVES BY CREATING ACCOUNTABILITY. 


FOR PURPOSES OF THIS CHALLENGE, A “SWEAR” IS EACH TIME YOU USE OR PURCHASE A SINGLE-USE PLASTIC ITEM (SEE THE LIST BELOW FOR COMMONLY USED SINGLE-USE PLASTICS)


RULES: 

1. DESIGNATE A CONTAINER AS YOUR #PLASTICSWEARJAR AND DECORATE IT SO THAT ITS OBVIOUS WHAT ITS FOR; 

2. KEEP TRACK OF ALL OF YOUR “SWEARS” EACH DAY (ON YOUR PHONE, IOU’S OR WHATEVER WORKS);

3. FOR EACH "SWEAR", PLACE $1 (OR WHATEVER FEELS FAIR) INTO THE JAR;
4. LET US KNOW YOU'RE PARTICIPATING BY SHARING A PHOTO WITH YOUR CHALLENGE AND TAG @CHANGINGTIDESFOUNDATION & #PLASTICSWEARJAR FOR YOUR CHANCE TO BE FEATURED AND WIN SOME OF OUR ECO-FRIENDLY GOODIES.

AT THE END OF THE 7 DAYS, YOU HAVE THE OPTION TO DONATE THE FUNDS TO CHANGING TIDES FOUNDATION VIA OUR #PLASTICSWEARJAR FUNDRAISER PAGE HERE, WHICH WILL BE USED TO BENEFIT OUR ENVIRONMENTAL INITIATIVES.

 
BE HONEST! THIS WON’T WORK UNLESS WE HOLD OURSELVES ACCOUNTABLE. 


REMEMBER, THIS ISN'T ABOUT BEING PERFECT, IT'S ABOUT AWARENESS.


YOU ALSO HAVE OPTION TO PURCHASE A DISCOUNTED PRODUCT BUNDLE OR SHOP OUR INDIVIDUAL ECO-FRIENDLY ITEMS TO JUMPSTART YOUR SUCCESS ON THE #PLASTICSWEARJAR CHALLENGE.


OTHER TIPS AND IDEAS:

-USE YOUR PHONE, A NOTE PAD OR IOU'S TO KEEP TRACK OF YOUR "SWEARS"!

-GET YOUR HOUSEHOLD (FAMILY/ROOMMATES/KIDS) TO PARTICIPATE!

-GET THIS GOING AT WORK AND INVITE YOUR OFFICE TO PARTICIPATE!
