Simply eliminating single use plastic is the most challenging pledge of Plastic Free July. It has a deceptively simple premise - just avoid using single-use plastic throughout the month.
Avoiding single use plastic is perhaps one of the biggest and most powerful actions we can take to make a sustainable future possible. It means getting organise, changing the way we make purchasing decisions and making different choices when it comes to everyday tasks.
Instead of getting your usual disposable take away box, bring your own container and cutlery, or choose food with packaging that's recyclable - pizza anyone?
Throwing a party? Ditch the straws or buy paper ones.
