Plastic Free July

This July, millions of participants will take steps to end plastic pollution by choosing to refuse single-use plastic. Every step makes a big difference and you can spread awareness so that others can get involved too!👬

How can I help

Small steps are important! Try avoiding bottled water, refusing pre-packaged produce, choosing reusable coffee cups and sharing the challenge with family and friends. Plus, it shows businesses and governments they need to make a change too!🌎

What else can I do?

You don’t have to do everything but choosing just one thing to refuse in July can make a difference.

  • Take the challenge and get tips and stories of other participants
  • Do the PFJ quiz to decide on what you could refuse
  • Take your first step or challenge yourself with multiple items!

Make a difference

Plastic Free July’s 140 million participants make a big difference by stopping around 300 million kg of plastic polluting the world each year. Spread the word and join the movement to help protect our environment! 💚
