Hi Plastic Free July-ers
Welcome to Plastic Free July 2020! It's day 1, and we hope you’re as excited as we are to make a global impact by choosing to refuse single-use plastic this month.
We know that Covid-19 is making things trickier than it might have been in previous years. So this is a gentle reminder not to let the things you can't do get you down. There are plenty of swaps that you can try inside the home, even if it's harder when you're out and about. We are not expecting you to be perfect. The trying is the important bit! And it goes without saying, please don't risk your health.
Don't forget, you're part of a movement with 250 million other people, and whatever you can do is going to have an impact. Collectively, all of our efforts are added together - your actions count.
By making small changes to your everyday habits, you can make a huge difference. Here are some things to think about to help reduce single-use plastic:
Once you choose one single-use plastic to avoid, you’ll quickly discover the other plastics in your life that you can start cutting out, too. We have plenty of ideas on our 'things you can do' page on our website, if you're stuck for ideas.
