Plastic Free July

Plastic Free July is a global movement that helps millions of people be part of the solution to plastic pollution. Plastic Free July isn’t about a handful of people doing zero-waste perfectly, it is about millions of people doing zero-waste imperfectly. Even by eliminating one type of plastic from your daily routine, you can make a difference.

 

How you can take part in the challenge

  • Start by heading over to www.plasticfreejuly.org to take the Pesky Plastics Quiz and understand your current use of single-use plastic
  • Once you have identified which plastics you can #choosetorefuse from your daily life, join the challenge and make a plastic free July pledge
