Plastic Free July
We always try to encourage people towards zero-waste options but if there is a time to get started on your journey, the time is now. For the duration of July, people from all over the world are taking part in Plastic Free July.
But, what is Plastic Free July, you ask?
Plastic Free July is a movement where millions get involved in being a part the solution to plastic pollution. The goal is to create cleaner streets, oceans and communities. And the great thing is, anyone can get involved. What’s not to love?
There’s various different way in which you can come on board this July – Plastic Free July is asking people to take the challenge for a day, a week, the month or more. What’s great is that for those dabbling in the idea of reducing their usage of single use plastics, you can choose how you get to do so too; whether it be by avoiding single use plastic packaging, targeting takeaway items such as cups, bottles and bags or by going completely plastic free.
