5 EASY TIPS TO ELIMINATE SINGLE-USE PLASTICS THIS JULY

Eliminating single-use plastics from your life can seem daunting, but with these simple tips, you can make a significant impact while participating in Plastic Free July.

TIP #1 – SIGN UP FOR THE PLASTIC FREE JULY CHALLENGE

Make sure you sign up to take the Plastic Free July Challenge! You can pledge to reduce single-use plastics for a day, a week, the entire month of July or from now on.

By taking the pledge, you join a global community committed to eliminating single-use plastics, gaining access to valuable resources and practical tips to
support your journey throughout the month. There’s also loads of ideas on their website to help get you started!

TIP #2 – OPT FOR REUSABLE BAGS AND CONTAINERS

Say no to the top four most prolific single-use plastics – plastic bags, water bottles, takeaway coffee cups and plastic straws.

Invest in high-quality reusable bags, water bottles, coffee cups and containers, and carry these wherever you go!

TIP #3 – SHOP SMART

Opt for products with minimal or plastic-free packaging. Support local farmers markets and bulk stores where you can bring your own containers.

TIP #4 – COOK AT HOME INSTEAD OF BUYING TAKEAWAY

Preparing meals at home instead of buying takeaway can significantly reduce plastic waste. Takeaway food often comes in plastic containers, with plastic cutlery and bags. By cooking at home, you avoid these single-use items and can store leftovers in reusable containers, further minimizing plastic use.

TIP #5 – EDUCATE AND INVOLVE OTHERS

Share your journey on social media to inspire others and spread awareness about the impact of plastic pollution (use the hashtag #PlasticFreeJuly). Encourage friends and family to join the Plastic Free July challenge and create your own community of plastic eliminators! Work together, share ideas and hold each other accountable!

JOIN THE MOVEMENT FOR A PLASTIC-FREE FUTURE

Participating in Plastic Free July is a powerful way to make a difference in the fight against plastic pollution. By incorporating simple changes like bringing your own reusables, shopping smart, cooking at home and educating others, you can significantly reduce your plastic footprint. Remember, this challenge is about setting realistic, achievable goals for yourself!
