In Australia we throw away 1 million tonnes of plastic waste to landfill each year! While many types of plastic food and beverage packaging can be recycled it’s still obviously preferable to avoid the use altogether if possible. And that’s what ‘Plastic Free July’ is all about.
The challenge is quite simple.
Attempt to refuse single-use plastic during July. “Single-use” includes plastic shopping bags, plastic cups, straws, plastic packaging…basically anything that’s intended only to be used once and then discarded. If refusing ALL single-use plastic sounds too daunting this time, try the TOP 4 challenge (plastic bags, bottles, takeaway coffee cups & straws).
