For the month of July, people around the world are set to go plastic free to help reduce plastic pollution as part of the global movement, Plastic Free July.

Started by a small local government team in Western Australia in 2011, Plastic Free July (PFJ) is now one of the most influential environmental campaigns in the world.

Millions of people across the globe take part every year, with many committing to reducing plastic pollution far beyond the month of July.

According to the PFJ charity participation in the initiative results in:

  • a reduction in household waste and recycling by 15kg per person per year (3.5% less waste)
  • global reduction of 2.1 billion tonnes of waste and recycling including 300 million kgs of plastic consumption
  • 86% of people making changes that become habits/a way of life
  • since its launch, Plastic Free July has reduced global demand by 2.3% of all bottled water, 3.1% of all fruit and vegetable packaging, and 4.0% of all plastic straws

So, whether it’s ditching pre-packaged fruit and vegetables, or ensuring you always have a reusable drinks bottle with you, there are many ways to make a difference as part of plastic free July.
