I was on the radio for Plastic Free July!
When I spoke at the Plastic Free July launch back in April (I wrote about it here) about my experience of Plastic Free July in 2012, I was also asked to record a brief interview with radio station RTR FM.
Well, this week my interview was aired!
Quite exciting, as I’ve never been on the radio before.
I have no idea how to add media files to the blog – or if it’s even possible – so I’m just going to share the link. If you’re interested, click here to hear the Understorey Plastic Free July programme recorded by RTR FM.
i enjoyed listening to the radio interview on plastic free it made me more aware of the problems plastic causes and i will try harder not to use plastic
Yay! Plastic is rubbish!
Exciting! (Though for me it would be nerve-wracking as well). I’m afraid I will only make it through the first half of the month with the challenge, as I will probably have to be making an unplanned trip to the USA, and will not be in a position to control a lot of the choices made. But I’m going to keep on it as much as possible, anyway!
It’s great that you’ve committed to the first half of the month! Travelling can be one of the hardest things to do plastic-free, I know. I remember being given a plastic cup on a flight, and I handed it back, but because I’d “cross-contaminated it” the Steward told me he’d have to chuck it in the bin anyway. Grrr! But aside from reducing plastic consumption, Plastic Free July is also a great exercise in realising how much of an issue plastic has become. It really opens your eyes, I think.
My main goal was to make myself even more aware of the plastic dilemma, even though we were already pretty careful. The main problem area will be staying in my parents’ home, where much is out of my control!
Great interview! Thanks for sharing.
