Plastic Free July 2017


Plastic Free July 2017

Joining the challenge is quite simple...choose to refuse single-use plastic during July.

Plastic Free July aims to raise awareness of the problems with single-use disposable plastic and challenges people to do something about it.

​You'll be joining a millions of people world-wide from 130 countries in making a difference.

A problem..
​The plastic bottles bags and takeaway containers that we use just for a few minutes use a material that is designed to last forever.

These plastics:
Melbourne break up not break down - becoming permanent pollution
Melbourne are mostly downcycled (made into low grade product for just one more use) or sent to landfill
Melbourne 'escape' from bins trucks events etc. to become 'accidental litter'
Melbourne end up in waterways and the ocean - where scientists predict there will be more tonnes of plastic than tonnes of fish by 2050
Melbourne transfer to the food chain - carrying pollutants with them
Melbourne increase our eco-footprint - plastic manufacturing consumes 6% of the world's fossil fuels

Every bit of plastic ever made still exists and in the first 10 years of this century the world economy produced more plastic than the entire 1900's!

With solutions..
​​More than 6 out of 10 of us are already refusing plastic shopping bags avoiding pre-packed fruit and veg picking up other people's litter and avoiding buying bottled water.

Choosing to be part of the solution you can act by:

Melbourne Avoiding products in plastic packaging (choose alternatives)
Melbourne Reducing where possible (opt for refills remember your reusable
shopping bags)
Melbourne Refusing plastics that escape as litter (e.g. straws takeaway cups utensils balloons)
Melbourne Recycling what cannot be avoided
