Have You Heard About Plastic Free July?

Have You Heard About Plastic Free July?

Plastic Free July is a key initiative of the Plastic Free Foundation that allows them to work towards a world free of plastic waste. The campaign has been running since 2011 and continues to deliver significant effects on reducing global waste. If you’re looking to reduce your carbon footprint, this could be a good opportunity.

In 2021, an estimated 140 million people from 190 countries took part in Plastic Free July. Participants reduced their non-recoverable (landfill) waste by 1.2 million tonnes and recyclable waste by 0.9 million tonnes, including plastic consumption by 0.3 million tonnes. 

Over the eleven years of the campaign, 87% of those that have taken part have made at least one lasting change. Across the last three years this is a waste reduction by 15kg per person per year (3.5% less waste). Participants are ahead of the global sustainability trend, being 13% more likely to adopt plastic waste avoidance behaviourFor the 2022 campaign, there are 155 events plannedincluding workshops, clean-ups, movie screenings and online forums across six continents.
