Plastic Free July 2019! How are you going?

Posted by Julie Jones on

PLASTIC FREE JULY – How’s the Challenge Going for you?? This July, we’ve been calling for all DIA Club Members to collectively address one of our greatest environmental challenges, plastic waste. Join our global movement to #choosetorefuse by signing up to the Plastic Free July see challenge here: plasticfreejuly.org/ (all the challenge details are here) Why Plastic Free July? Apart from the small amount of plastic which is incinerated, every piece of plastic ever made still exists on earth! And more plastic was produced in the first 10 years of this century than the entire last century… Australians send 1 million tonnes of plastic to landfill each year. Do your part to make a change… How it works: Attempt to buy no plastic packaging in July. You can choose to participate for a 1 day, 1 week or 1 month. This year we are also offering the TOP FOUR challenge (avoid water bottles, straws, plastic bags and takeaway coffee cups). Remember its not going to be easy, but its a challenge, not a competition so don't worry about being perfect.
