Seventh edition of Plastic Free July

Amsterdam/Australia, 1 July 2018 A small and local initiative to live without plastic during the month of July has developed into a worldwide movement with 2 million people in 159 countries. The number of participants has doubled every year. And 90% of the participants continue to less use plastic. Organisations and companies can also participate in Plastic Free July. At the moment, 2000 companies are already participating. Plastic Free July is a big success and the inspiration for the May Plastic Free initiative in Belgium.

Plastic Free July is an independent not-for-profit foundation, whose vision is a world without plastic waste. It is a global grassroots movement that aims for the dramatic reduction of plastic use and to improve the recycling of the plastics that are still used.

Everybody can get involved in the challenge; just go to the site of Plastic Free July. A toolbox, with ideas and examples to reduce your plastic use, is also available on this website. Because reducing your plastic consumption is much easier than you think.
