Fillgood.co "Plastic Free July" Pledge

If we reach 200 lbs of reduced plastic packaging by July 31st (as of June 30th our plastic meter indicated 132 lbs), we will donate 10% of our July profits to one organization dedicated to raising awareness about plastic pollution.

200 lbs of plastic = 7000 plastic water bottles, that's a lot of plastic!!

You will be able to follow our progress on our 1st page every day.

We'll choose the organization as soon as the challenge ends. Anybody will have the possibility to vote for its favorite one, among this list :

Thank you for posting this!
Even though our family try to do some of it, all along the year this increases our awareness about this issue and encourage us to be more creative with how to do so.
By the way, I really like your website: it’s informative but also lively and fun!!!

Will tell my whole family and will stick to it as well.

For the profits, you can donate to some initiatives that are cleaning our oceans from platic waste, such as the ocean cleanup project.

All the best ans thank you

Taking the challenge! Focusing on using only water bottles and mugs/ non plastic silverwares/ plates and refill products for soap/laundry/dishwasher.

I love that you (we!) are doing this. Small plastic bottles are the absolute worst – I hope they soon go the way of litter and indoor smoking.
