If your business is looking for ways to get involved in Plastic-Free July 2022, here are a few ideas to get you started.
What is Plastic-Free July?
Plastic-Free July is a global movement that aims to reduce the amount of plastic waste created each year. The challenge is to avoid using any single-use plastics for the month of July. This includes items such as straws, plastic bags, water bottles, and coffee cups. Instead, participants are encouraged to use reusable alternatives or forego these items altogether.
There are many benefits to taking part in Plastic-Free July. For businesses, it’s a great way to show customers that you’re committed to sustainability and reducing your environmental impact. It can also help you save money by avoiding the need to purchase disposable plastics. And finally, it helps raise awareness about the issue of plastic pollution and encourages people to make long-term changes in their consumption habits.
