Plastic Free July

Plastic Free July is a global movement helping people to be part of the solution to plastic pollution.

Businesses can help staff and customers to choose the alternatives to single-use plastics and support a wider movement to reduce plastic waste across the community. This can include using reusable alternatives, such as reusable water bottles and coffee cups.

It’s important to have your staff on board with changes as well. Train them to be able to communicate the move away from single-use plastics, including:

  • Why the business is plastic free.
  • Alternatives to single-use plastic that your business has decided to use.
  • What goes in which bin and why.

The Plastic Free Foundation has a range of resources for businesses.
