What is it
Plastic Free July (PFJ) aims to raise awareness of the amount of unneeded plastic in our lives by encouraging people to eliminate the use of single-use plastic during July each year.
Single-use includes plastic shopping bags, plastic cups, straws, plastic packaging. Basically anything that is intended only to be used once and then sent to landfill. If refusing ALL single use plastic sounds too daunting this time, try the TOP 4 challenge (straws, plastic bags, plastic bottles & coffee cups).
Joining the challenge is quite simple...choose to refuse single-use plastic during July.
Plastic Free July aims to raise awareness of the problems with single-use disposable plastic and challenges people to do something about it.
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.
