Plastic Free July

Join the challenge and choose to refuse single-use plastic during Plastic Free July.

Plastic Free July is a global yearly challenge encouraging people to give up single-use plastic during the month of July.

This year the ACT government is calling on the community to get involved and reduce our single-use plastic habits. By taking part, you’ll be joining over 2 million people from 150 countries in making a difference.

The great thing about Plastic Free July is that you can choose a challenge that works for you.

Host a plastic free morning tea, attend a plastic free living workshop or choose to refuse plastic shopping bags, straws and takeaway containers.
