We’re fighting climate change and plastic pollution by cutting down on single-use plastics for Plastic Free July.
As part of Mia’s TAKE2 pledge to fight climate change, our team is signing up for Plastic Free July. Plastic Free July is a global movement whereby individuals and businesses resolve to eschew single-use plastics to fight plastic pollution.
Disposable coffee cups? Pre-packaged fruit and vegetables? (Pre-packaged just about anything…) Cut them out!
Many/most of us are diligently using keep cups and reusable produce bags, but there’s always more we can do. The aim of Plastic Free July is to push ourselves a bit more for one month to see what new alternative choices we can make. Like frequenting local bulk food stores, asking for paper bags at the bakery, adopting reusable wraps instead of cling film, trying out solid shampoo bars… (The list really does go on.)
There are so many ways we can make a difference as individuals, and we hope Plastic Free July will inspire us to develop a few new habits we can sustain into the future.
We’d also like to encourage others to check out the Plastic Free July website and perhaps sign-up. It’s free for individuals and the only commitment is cutting down or eliminating single-use plastics from your everyday life.
If you haven’t previously considered Sustainability Victoria’s TAKE2 Pledge, why not give it some more thought? TAKE2 is Victoria’s collective climate change program supporting individuals, government, business and other organisations to help our state achieve net zero emissions by 2050. See the TAKE2 website or our March news item for further information.
