Plastic Free July (July)

Plastic Free July (July)

This July, we’re calling for all global citizens to collectively address one of our greatest environmental challenges, plastic waste. Join our global movement to #choosetorefuse by signing up to the Plastic Free July challenge here: plasticfreejuly.org/

 

The challenge is quite simple...attempt to refuse single-use plastic during July.

Plastic Free July aims to raise awareness of the problems and amount of single-use disposable plastic in our lives and challenges people to do something about it. You can sign up for a day, a week or the whole month and try to refuse ALL single-use plastic or try the TOP 4: plastic bags, water bottles, takeaway coffee cups and straws.

By 2050 its estimated there will be more plastic than fish in the world's oceans. Most comes from land and was once in our hands. Refuse single-use plastic and together lets keep our oceans clean. Join over 40,000 people, schools and organisations from 90 countries and let those same hands be part of the solution
