Plastic Free July 2023

Small steps make a big impact!

We're partnering with Plastic Free Foundation to encourage small steps to make a big impact in reducing our local and global plastic waste.
Plastic Free July® is recognised globally as an annual month of global change, where individuals, businesses and governments come together to take action to reduce plastic waste. By sharing ideas, positive actions and stories of change, Plastic Free July helps people and organisations “choose to refuse” single-use plastic everyday.
Join us, along with millions of people worldwide, in this year's Challenge to reduce our plastic waste.
Take the Challenge
Simply choose one small change in your plastics use this July and receive weekly emails to keep motivated during the challenge.
Each small step we take to become plastic free can make a big difference towards:

It can be as easy as picking one single-use plastic item to avoid or swap for a reusable alternative.
