Plastic Free July – simple rules

The Challenge

The challenge is quite simple. Attempt to refuse single-use plastic during July.

“Single-use” includes plastic shopping bags, plastic cups, straws, plastic packaging…basically anything that’s intended only to be used once and then discarded. If refusing ALL single-use plastic sounds too daunting this time, try the TOP 4 challenge (straws, plastic bags, plastic bottles &coffee cup lids).

The rules

1.Attempt to refuse single-use plastic during July.

2.Remember it’s not going to be easy! It is a challenge, not a competition so don’t worry about being perfect.

3.Collect any unavoidable single-use plastic you buy. Keep in a dilemma bag and share it with us at the end of the challenge.

4.It’s up to you regarding how long you participate. You might decide to go plastic-free for a day, a week, a month or longer! However long you choose will still make a contribution.
