Plastic free July challenge 2018

5 things you can do to encourage others to join in

  • Encourage your family and friends to get involved. Share what you’ve learned about reducing single-use plastics and encourage them to join with you.

  • Encourage your workplace, school or group to get involved – you could hold an art exhibition of objects made from recycled materials, or do local clean ups or hold a community event.
  • Encourage your local café or favourite restaurant to provide a discount for those bringing recyclable cups and containers
  • Promote recycling at work or in your school by setting up or requesting recycling bins for organic (kitchen) waste, glass, paper, plastics, e-waste including batteries and phones.
  • Share your achievements and challenges on social media with the hashtags #PlasticFreeJuly #ChooseToRefuse #PlasticFree #SayNoToPlastic #BeatPlasticPolution #Rethink.
