Plastic Free July

Plastic Free July aligns with the Plastic Wise Program, part of the joint Council-community Towards Environmental Leadership program. Plastic Wise aims to reduce the use and distribution of plastic, and raise awareness of its harmful effects.

Here are five tips to help reduce plastic waste during Plastic Free July:

  • Take your own shopping bag
  • Take your own cup
  • Carry a reusable water bottle
  • Say no to disposable straws and cutlery
  • Skip plastic produce bags

The Plastic Wise Program highlights community projects and initiatives that help reduce plastic pollution. It includes Plastic Bag Free Torquay  – a local group aiming to stop the free distribution of single use plastic bags in Torquay and beyond.
