The ‘Plastic Free July’ Challenge: Five ways you can reduce plastic waste this month

Plastic Free July® is a global initiative to reduce plastic pollution, driven by an Australian charity! The campaign has grown from humble beginnings in 2011 to inspire more than 100 million participants in 190 countries. Those who take on the challenge can choose to refuse or reduce single-use plastics during the month of July, with many going on to form new lifestyle habits that last a lifetime.

The decision to fly single-use plastic free was a clever bid to raise awareness around pollution, a smart move by the air carrier giant.
