Plastic Free July, a campaign that started in Australia but has now gained traction world-wide, challenges people to think about the plastic they use in their lives and take action to reduce it.
This year, we’re celebrating the 10th anniversary of the movement towards a world without plastic waste!
Will you join us by taking on the challenge?
Why we think it’s important to cut down on plastic use:
- Plastic is made from non-renewable fossil fuels
- Plastic can take up to 1000 years to breakdown, and never fully degrades, remaining in the environment as microplastics
- Plastic bags, bottles, packaging, and straws are the most commonly littered items (cigarette butts holding the first place)
- Plastic ends up in our waterways, polluting our drinking water, harming marine life, and building up in our bodies
