Your Plastic-Free Journey Begins Today!

Share this:

Welcome to Plastic-Free July! Don’t worry if you didn’t plan on making some changes this month. I’ve got you covered.⁠

Whether you’re consciously following #plasticfreejuly or just want to reduce (or be aware of) the amount of plastic you use, consume, and buy, you can join the journey at any point. ⁠

I’m going to be posting content to guide you wherever you are, and I encourage you to ask questions, provide resources, or support someone else — either here or on Instagram or Facebook.

FIVE TIPS TO GET STARTED! Watch this short video that provides the foundation for living with intention and compassion: ⁠

1. Take a look at where you’re at (and start there). ⁠
2. Have fun with it. Gamify it!⁠
3. Create an intention — what do you want to bring to this experience? What do you want to take away from it?⁠
4. The journey isn’t about buying all new plastic-free things.⁠
5. Value / use what you already have. ⁠

About Colleen

Hello, and welcome. I’m Colleen, aka The Joyful Vegan, and I’m here to give you the tools and resources you need to eat, cook, travel, and live compassionately and healthfully. 

Donating = Loving

For over twenty years, my work and podcast have remained free (and ad-free) and vibrant thanks to support from listeners, followers, and readers. I have no staff, no interns, and no assistant. What you see (and hear and watch) is a one-woman labor of love that is also my life and my livelihood. If this labor has impacted your life in the past year (or the past decades), please consider aiding its sustenance by becoming a patron or by making a one-time donation. Your support makes all the difference.
