We’ve all heard about the massive impact of single-use plastics – not only on ocean life, but in our local environments too.
Plastic-free July challenges us to go a whole month without single-use plastic. Are you up for the challenge?
Take the 'Pesky Plastics' quiz to see where you can make changes and discover alternatives to many of the single-use plastics we use every day.
For our part, we’ve got rid of plastic cutlery in our restaurants, we’re phasing out disposable coffee cups at our coffee shops, and we’ve replaced disposable plastic cups with beakers.
If you want to reduce how much plastic you use, try targeting the top 4 single-use plastics: bags, bottles, straws and coffee cups.
There are many simple changes we can all make: follow the Waste Aware Facebook page for tips and ideas throughout July.
