So… I bet you were thinking that now that we are in August my incessant blogging about Plastic Free July would stop? I apologise but it is set to continue for just a smidge longer… though on a different medium this time at least!
On Friday I was emailed by a lovely fellow named Peter Barr, kindly congratulating me on my month of being Plastic Free. What makes this email particularly blog-worthy though is that Peter Barr is the morning presenter on RTR FM (92.1fm) – an independent radio station here in Perth. Much to my surprise (and horror) he has invited me into the Breakfast With Barr studio to chat about the experience and (hopefully) inspire a few people to rethink their plastic habits.
I am ridiculously nervous about the whole affair and shortly after reading the email seriously considered running for the hills… naked and screaming. It just seemed like the right thing to do. But sanity prevailed (this time at least) and I reminded myself that the reason I created this blog in the first place was to start conversations about our habits, create a bit of an online community of information sharing, perhaps offer easy solutions and maybe even (if I really tried hard enough) encourage people to give these little changes a go in their own lives. So I decided that I really had to face my fear of public speaking and jump in.
Every man, through fear, mugs his aspirations a dozen times a day.
The interview was held Tuesday, 7th August 2012 as 8:30am WST on 92.1FM.
