Today marks the first day of Plastic Free July - a global movement to reduce plastic pollution.
Everyone is encouraged to get involved, even if it's just making a few small changes to your purchases or routine. It's not about a handful of people doing plastic-free perfectly, it's about millions of people around the world doing it imperfectly - and it works!
Will you be joining the challenge this month?

Hi Wellington! This week we're investigating where to buy the best cheese scones in our city and we'd love your help.
Please let us know your recommendations in the comments below - tell us where and why the scones are the best - and our intrepid reporter is going to sample your top five choices. You'll be able to read all about it in this Saturday's Dominion Post.
Champion netball coach Yvette McCausland-Durie will be back at the helm of the Central Pulse next year after being confirmed as the replacement for Gail Parata.
McCausland-Durie took the Pulse to four consecutive ANZ Premiership finals and won back-to-back championships before stepping down at the end of the 2020 season as the daily commute from Palmerston North to Wellington took its toll.
Hi neighbours and beyond
I'm all for speed humps and pedestrian crossings especially near schools.
Buttt... I'm really struggling with the new combined crossing/bump on Britomart Street by Berhampore school. It is so harsh that I'm nearly at a stand still to get over it and even then it's still harsh on my car. I've nearly stalled and get weird looks from kids doing the patrol as they wave me through.
Does anyone else have similar thoughts about it?
I would like to propose to the council that they smooth the harsh edges but they will laugh at me if I'm the only one.
Looking forward to your thoughts
