Plastic Free July: take the challenge or make a change

Plastics are a major cause of litter and pollution, especially in our waterways and oceans. The Plastic Free July initiative started in Western Australia and is now catching on worldwide, with more than 1 million people making a positive change last year.

Take the challenge or make a change in whatever way you can to avoid or reduce single use plastic, for this month or forever!

Say ‘no thanks’ to plastic shopping bags, single use water bottles, plastic straws, plastic food wrap and take away coffee cups and lids.

Bring your own reusable shopping bags or choose a box. Refill your drink bottle. Buy and store food in reusable or compostable containers. Choose to refuse plastic straws or use metal or paper alternatives.

And remember… you can often recycle what can’t be avoided. Plastic recycling in Tasmania includes via your kerbside recycling bin and your Waste Transfer Station for some plastics such as milk and soft drink bottles and margarine containers. There are also soft plastic collection bins in major supermarkets and even printer cartridge recycling via Planet Ark.

 

Take the Plastic Free July challenge at www.plasticfreejuly.org or simply make a change at home, at work or at school in whatever way possible.
