Be part of plastic pollution solution

You’re invited to be part of the solution to plastic pollution by joining a global movement to reduce plastic waste this month.

Plastic Free July® is a key initiative of the Plastic Free Foundation, a not-for-profit organization dedicated to reducing plastic pollution.

Its suggestions for avoiding single-use plastic packaging include targeting the takeaway items that could end up in the ocean or go completely plastic free. Choose to refuse single-use cups by taking your own reusable cup or by dining in. Refuse plastic packaging by making your own snacks, cake or bread. Avoid plastic wrap by storing leftovers in reusable containers. Choose the length of your commitment: one day, one week, one month, always.

The Plastic Free Foundation was established in 2017 to support the Plastic Free July campaign, which began in 2011. Its mission is to see a world free of plastic waste by encouraging individuals, businesses and governments to reduce their reliance on single-use plastics. The Plastic Free July movement has reportedly inspired more than 100 million participants in 190 countries.
