Plastic Free July is a global movement that challenges people to reduce their single-use plastic consumption for the month of July. Since its launch in 2011, Plastic Free July has inspired millions of people to make changes in their everyday lives, and has helped to reduce millions of tons of plastic waste from entering our oceans and landfills.
If you're looking for ways to reduce your plastic footprint, Plastic Free July is a great place to start. Here are a few simple tips to help you get started:
Bring your own reusable bags when you go shopping. This is one of the easiest ways to reduce your plastic consumption.
Say no to straws. Straws are a major source of plastic pollution, and they're completely unnecessary.
Use a reusable water bottle. Instead of buying bottled water, invest in a reusable water bottle that you can refill throughout the day.
Avoid single-use food containers. When you're ordering food to go, ask for your food to be put in reusable containers. Did you know that we offer a discount to people who re-use their salad bowls and bring their own coffee cups?
Buy zer waste. When you buy zero waste products, you can reduce the amount of packaging that you use and buy JUST what you need.
Compost food scraps. Composting is a great way to reduce the amount of food waste that ends up in landfills.
Recycle whenever possible. Even if you're trying to reduce your plastic consumption, recycling is still important.
These are just a few simple tips to help you reduce your plastic footprint. By making small changes in your everyday life, you can make a big difference.
In addition to these tips, there are a number of other things you can do to celebrate Plastic Free July. You can:
