Plastic Free July

Plastic Free July® is a global movement that helps millions of people be part of the solution to plastic pollution – so we can have cleaner streets, oceans, and beautiful communities.

Plastic Free July® is not just about avoiding plastic for a month; it's about forming lasting habits that lead to significant environmental change. By participating, individuals can discover new ways to reduce their plastic consumption and inspire others to do the same.

Here are some simple steps to get started:

  1. Bring Your Own Bags and Containers: One of the easiest ways to reduce plastic use is by bringing reusable bags and containers for shopping and takeout. This small change can significantly reduce the number of single-use plastics we consume.

  2. Choose Plastic-Free Alternatives: Opt for products made from materials like glass, metal, or sustainable wood. Many everyday items, from water bottles to toothbrushes, are available in plastic-free forms.

  3. Support Local and Sustainable Businesses: Many businesses in our community are committed to reducing plastic waste. Supporting these businesses not only helps the environment but also strengthens our local economy.

  4. Educate and Advocate: Share your journey with friends and family. Educating others about the impact of plastic pollution and the benefits of reducing plastic use can create a ripple effect of positive change.

By taking part in Plastic Free July®, we can collectively reduce our plastic footprint and contribute to a healthier planet. This movement reminds us that every small action counts and that together, we can make a significant difference.

Let's embrace this challenge and show the world that our community is committed to sustainability. Join us in making this July plastic-free and inspire a lifelong commitment to protecting our environment.
