Could you live without plastic for an entire month?
Sign up for Plastic Free July and challenge yourself to refuse plastic for the next 30 days.
To participate in Plastic Free July, commit to avoiding all single-use plastic products for the month of July as best you can. Keep whatever you do use in a "dilemma bag".
Eliminating plastic from your life is not an easy task! Disposable plastic products, from straws to water bottles to plastic bag, are all around us. We now produce 260 million tons of plastic annually. In fact, by 2050 there will be more plastic than fish in the ocean. We’ve also seen pictures of marine life suffocating from plastic—100,000 marine mammals and one million seabirds are killed from plastic in the ocean every year. As a result, plastic is choking marine life, our waterways and our bodies.
But your actions can make a difference.
This July, do your part to say NO to single-use plastic products.
Sign up today and make a commitment to refuse plastic for one day, one week, or the entire month. We'll be in touch with weekly updates to help you along the way.
We'd LOVE to see your plastic-free (or plastic-fail) photos. Tag any picture of you and your plastic free solution with:
#storyofstuff and #plasticfreejuly.
We'll be featuring your photos throughout the month.
