How to Play

The major issue of plastic pollution has been gaining much awareness lately, thanks to numerous documentaries and high profile campaigns. As we wake up to the level of destruction to our planet caused by single- use plastics, people are increasingly switching to reusables. Hooray! Join us in this global game of tag by sharing photos of your reusables to help #beatplasticpollution Let’s play!

All games have rules 😉 These ones are very simple…

1. Take a photo of between 1- 3 reusable items that you personally have switched to, in order to help tackle plastic pollution.

2. Caption your photo with a short message to raise awareness.

3. Also include your top tip for beating plastic pollution.

4. Share your photo and caption, along with your top tip, tagging at least three other people.

My Top Tip

Switch out one single-use plastic at a time. It feels less overwhelming then!

Here’s my photo…

A zip sandwich bag to avoid cling film, a bamboo straw because I don’t suck and plastic straws do! Plus a bamboo toothpaste… ok, so plastic toothbrushes are not technically a single-use plastic, but these are far more sustainable! What switches have you made to help #BeatPlasticPollution? Show me your reusables!

Introducing 100 Days of Home Ed #LoveHomeEd

A fellow home educator has set up this brilliant idea of a 100 day photo challenge, starting tomorrow (6/2/17), for everyone to share our home ed adventures. To take part, simply use the hashtags #100DaysofHomeEd and #LoveHomeEd to share your home ed photos on the social media channels of your choice. 

#100daysofhomeed, #LoveHomeEd, home education, hashtag, photo challenge, guest post, interview, Q and A, Living Life Our Way

Feeling inspired by this challenge, I have decided to host a daily Q & A series with home educators. It will be great to read about a variety of home educating families and celebrate the diversity within our community. If possible, I aim to run this series for the full length of the photo challenge; so hopefully I will share a guest post daily for the next 100 days! Therefore if you home educate and would like to take part, please get in touch with me asap at livinglifeourway@outlook.com Thank you!

Lastly, if you have a blog post about your home ed adventures, please feel free to share it on the linky below so that we can all have a read! This linky will be open for the next 100 days too. 

Happy home edding!
