Plastic Free July 2020: Join the Challenge!
We are in July, which means it's PLASTIC FREE JULY again!
2020 is the 10th edition. It’s so exciting to see this movement growing every year. In 2019, over 250 million people from 177 countries pledged to reduce plastic waste in July: organizers evaluated that participants collectively prevented 825 million kgs of plastic waste.
Let's raise the bar in 2020, join the new challenge!
Here’s how to get ready:
1- Go to Plastic Free July website and take the pledge
2- Get inspired by other people’s stories on the page “What others do”.
3- Print their Action Picker page and choose what you’re going to do next.
