Plastic Free July

Plastic Free July aims to raise awareness of the amount of single-use disposable plastic in our lives and challenges people to do something about it. You can sign up for a day, a week or the whole month and try to refuse ALL single-use plastic or try the TOP 4: plastic bags, water bottles, takeaway coffee cups and straws.

Join thousands of people from over 70 countries saying NO to single-use plastic this July. Take personal action and get involved locally. The Ecology Center in Berkeley, California is hosting a series of events for the community to take action and get tips on reducing plastic waste.
