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.
Businesses get involved in Plastic Free July to help staff and customers choose alternatives to single-use plastics and to support a wider movement to reduce plastic waste across the community.
You can take the plastic free challenge as a business for a day, a week, a month or even as the start of a permanent change. Success depends upon clear communication with staff and customers about what you’re doing, so they know to bring their own bag, mug, container, etc.
