Plastic Free July is an initiative of the Plastic Free foundation. This initiative allows individuals to work toward their goal of a world free of plastic waste. Started more than a decade ago, and year-on-year the results have been phenomenal.
The main aim of this global movement is to reduce plastic pollution. In turn, our environment, the ocean and the communities we live in can be cleaner. There are many ways individuals can partake in #PlasticFreeJuly:
Here are some interesting statistics about the participants of Plastic Free July: Their household waste is reduced & recycled by 15kg per person per year resulting in 3.5% less waste.
The reality is that every bit you do makes an active difference for the environment, so whether you are ditching a takeaway coffee cup by bringing a reusable or finding plastic-free alternatives when doing grocery shopping, your choice added to the vision of seeing the world free of plastic waste.
At Ecoserv Group we have taken the pledge to minimize the use of single-use plastic within our offices both in the UK and South Africa as well as on our client’s sites. We will continue to drive our vision of reducing waste and building a cleaner greener environment for our employees and clients.
“Be the change you wish to see in the world.”
