Plastic-Free July

While it is common knowledge that plastic is harmful for the environment, many people do not realize the full extent of how damaging plastic pollution is. Did you know that every minute of every day, a truckload of plastic is dumped into the ocean (World Economic Forum)? 

Though plastic pollution might seem like a daunting problem to face, the Plastic Free Foundation is encouraging every individual to get involved and do their part during the month of July and beyond. Plastic Free July is a global movement by the Plastic Free Foundation to end plastic waste by sharing various plastic-free alternatives and other resources. Over 100 million people take part in this challenge to find ways to reduce single-use plastic waste in all corners of their life. This campaign also offers fun quizzes, toolkits, testimonials, and local events to get people as involved as possible. With over 100,000 people following this movement on Instagram, Plastic Free July is making huge strides to raise awareness on plastic waste. 

Plastic Free July provides ideas for reducing waste at school, home, work, and beyond. Click here to take part in this challenge today!
