Plastic Free July is on ! Take the opportunity to embrace a more eco-friendly life style.

The objective of the Plastic Free July challenge is to refuse plastic during the month of July. It was created by the western Metropolitan regional Council in Australia in 2011, it was implement to educate people of the importance of reusing.
Since this campaign was introduced back in 2011 plastic free challenges have been organised every July. Today you can join this campaign to discover more about the impact of plastic and all the other cleaner alternatives available to you.

This is not competition, but it is a great way to discover the amount of plastic that we consume and what we can do to cut down on it.

You can commit to a day, a week or a month and try to avoid the top 4 : straws, plastic bottles, plastic bags & coffee cup lids or every plastic!
