Plastic Free July is an annual campaign, which takes place every year. This movement encourages people to reduce their plastic consumption so we can improve our oceans, have cleaner communities, conserve natural resources and protect our wildlife.
- Carry a reusable bottle.
- Avoid excessive food packaging. Why not look for loose fruit and veg?
- Say no to disposable plastic cutlery. Why not carry your own cutlery in your bag?
- Use refill stations. We are seeing a rise in zero waste shopping which means you can bring your own container from home and weigh the goods you want to buy. From pasta, oats, spices, detergents, the list goes on!
