Plastic Free July 2021
First, let’s talk about Plastic Free July. The movement began in 2011 as an initiative by the Plastic Free Foundation. Since then, more than 326 million participants from 177 countries have participated in the Plastic Free July challenge!
The best part? The “challenge” can be adapted to suit your needs and lifestyle. If it’s your first Plastic Free July, you might be interested in targeting the Top 4 Takeaway Items (single-use bags, bottles, straws and coffee cups).
If you’re already comfortable with this, you can move onto some of the trickier swaps — like the ones we’ve outlined in this blog. If you’re already a plastic-free expert (good for you!), you might be interested in spreading the word about Plastic Free July by organising events and sharing ideas. It’s really up to you!
