Plastic free July


Plastic Free July began with humble beginings in Perth in 2011 and has grown from a handful of participants, to millions of people taking part in more than 150 countries worldwide.

The challenge is to refuse all single-use plastic during July.

What is single use plastic ?

Single-use plastic items include plastic shopping bags, plastic cups, straws, plastic packaging — anything that’s intended to only be used only once and then discarded.

Change in behaviour

The Plastic Free July campaign raises the awareness of our growing plastic waste problem by encouraging and supporting behaviour change.

By helping people to avoid single-use / disposable plastic through educating the general public and highlighting the cause.

It’s not however, just about changing our own behaviour but about also sharing solutions and being part of a wider movement for long term change.

Community groups, businesses, schools and other organisations can all participate in Plastic Free July and join the global

#breakfreefromplastic movement.


In our home alot of the changes have occured long before July. We love nature and I feel it’s our obligation to model the behaviour we want our children to follow.

We use reusable bottles and I rushed out to buy myself a refillable mug to take with me so as not to use disposables.

I’ve made an effort to start shopping for products that have less packaging and recycle most of our trash.

We don’t buy what we dont need and donate items we can’t use anymore to organisations that can use them.


As much as the highlight for reducing our plastic footprints on the Earth is in July I do believe we need to model a lifestyle that our children will be proud to follow and that allows our world to sustain us a little longer.

🐾I’d love to hear what you and your family are doing for plastic free July
