Plastic Free July has grown from a handful of participants in Western Australia in 2011, through to millions of participants across more than 150 countries worldwide today. By encouraging people to be more aware of their plastic use, we can create a cleaner world for generations to come. Part of this involves supporting behaviour change and helping others habitually #choosetorefuse shopping bags, straws, takeaway containers and coffee cups – just to name a few.
Join the challenge and ‘Choose To Refuse’ single-use plastic during July. Imagine a world without plastic waste. That’s our mission – to build a global movement that dramatically reduces plastic use and improves recycling, worldwide.
Will you join us and give up single-use plastic this July?
More than 6 out of 10 of us are already refusing plastic shopping bags, avoiding pre-packed fruit and veg, picking up other people’s litter and avoiding buying bottled water. Choosing to be part of the solution, you can act by:
- Avoiding products in plastic packaging (choose alternatives)
- Reducing where possible (opt for refills, remember your reusable shopping bags)
- Refusing plastics that escape as litter (e.g. straws, takeaway cups, utensils, balloons)
- Recycling what cannot be avoided
Join over two million people world-wide stepping up in Plastic Free July in 2018. Click here to choose what you will refuse.
