We love trees! Even though National Tree Day has been cancelled due to coronavirus, you can still learn about how planting trees can help protect our environment. Join other students across Australia to plant a tree at home and enjoy some puzzles and games all about TREES! https://treeday.planetark.org/toolkit/
What goes up must come down. Balloons and other party items are often single use and end up in our waterways or remain in the environment forever. Plastic Free July has some great tips to switch out your single-use plastic party decorations: 
- Swapping glitter for confetti made out of dried leaves.
- Choosing paper lolly bags by sourcing treats from the bulk food store, or make gifts of crayons, chalk, seeds, plants, second hand books, and homemade playdough.
- Disposable cups / plates / cutlery are easily replaced by reusable items borrowed from neighbours or friends. People who  have a lot of parties often invest in reusable bamboo sets. 
- Choosing  to refuse single-use plastic water bottles can be as simple as filling a water jug or dispenser from the tap.
- Opting for paper straws or reusable ones made from metal, glass, or bamboo. 
Some of us have found ourselves with a little bit more time on our hands due to coronavirus isolation. Have you learnt to make anything from scratch? Although more time consuming, making things such as pasta or bread means you can avoid a lot of the plastic packaging the ingredients come in! #PlasticFreeJuly
What are your favourite #plasticfree bathroom hacks? Our bathrooms have the potential for so much plastic. This #PlasticFreeJuly try swapping out one of these products to a more sustainable option.
Liquid soap --> try a bar of soap 
Plastic toothbrush --> try a bamboo brush 
Toothpaste --> try toothpaste tablets 
Toothfloss --> try a biodegradable floss that often comes in a glass or recycled packaging
Razor blades - try a reusable blade 
Shampoor/conditioner --> swop to a bar version or try refilling your old bottles at a bulk goods store
These days buying groceries seems less of a chore and more of an excuse to leave the house. One great way to reduce your plastic waste when shopping is by using reusable produce bags and containers. If it's not possible, try buying in bulk (or the largest container available) - you'll not only be reducing your waste, your back pocket will also thank you. What other tips do you have for reducing plastic waste when heading to the shops? #PlasticFreeJuly
