Plastic Free July
Are you happy to commit to making one small change across July and take the Plastic Free July challenge?
Plastic Free July is a global movement that helps millions of people be part of the plastic free solution to plastic pollution - so we have cleaner streets, oceans, and beautiful communities.
You can be part of Plastic Free July by choosing to refuse single use plastic…
Together we can make a difference and be a part of the solution.
🔊 You can also download our special Plastic Free July Podcast featuring Richard Thompson from the University of Plymouth, who's a researcher on plastic pollution. Other guests include Plymouth City Councillor Sue Dann, the cabinet member for the environment, Jackie Young from Environment Plymouth and El Clarke from Clean Our Patch.
Here are some tips on how you can help:
Bring a reusable coffee cup or dine-in at your local café
Find plastic-free alternatives, such as paper bags when buying fruit & veg
Use reusable shopping bags, or cotton jute bags
Avoid using plastic straws, stirrers and ear buds
Use a reusable water bottle instead of buying single use plastic ones
Avoid plastic trays used for meat, fish and deli items... Take tupperware to the butchers!
Swap liquid soap for bar soaps
Buy a bamboo toothbrush instead of a plastic one
