Celebrate Plastic Free July

Plastic Free July is a global movement advocates for solutions to single-use plastic consumption and helps to promote small changes we can make in our daily lives to reduce our plastic footprint. While switching to single-use plastic alternatives might seem like an inconsequential change, everyone working together to reduce their plastic usage can make a huge difference.

We know that avoiding plastic entirely is not always feasible. However, we can take care to avoid or reuse certain plastics that cannot be recycled easily. Taking a little extra time and effort to sort and clean plastic recyclables can make a huge difference in avoiding plastic contamination. Ensuring that our everyday plastics are clean, actually helps divert them from our local landfills and increases their chances of having a second life!

Plastic recycling can be very confusing, but with this quick guide, you can recycle with more confidence and help keep our watersheds, oceans, and communities healthy. You are part of the solution to plastic pollution!
