Plastic Free July

  • Wednesday July 18, 2018

Choose To Refuse!

Do you have what it takes to take on the challenge? Come on, give it a go! 

Plastic Free July is a global yearly challenge where millions of people give up single use plastic. The purpose of this challenge is to raise awareness on how much single use plastic we are using on a day to day basis & helps us try and find more alternatives that are better for our environment and sea life! 

‘Single use’ plastic includes; plastic shopping bags, plastic cups, straws, coffee cup lids and plastic packaging – Anything that is used once only and then thrown away. For those of you like us that love your everyday takeaway coffee… don’t worry, you don’t have to give it up! Simply take your own alternative ‘metal’ cup to your daily café and ask them to fill this instead.

Ministry for the Environment statistics estimate that New Zealanders send approximately 200,000 tonnes of plastic to landfill every year, roughly half of which is packaging. And that’s not the worst of it! All these single use items no matter what has happened with them, still exist somewhere on our earth, so let’s try our best to bring this number down.


The guidelines for the challenge are:

  1. Attempt to refuse single-use plastic during July.
  2. Remember it’s not going to be easy! It is a challenge, not a competition, so don’t worry about being perfect.
  3. Collect any unavoidable single-use plastic you buy. Keep it in a dilemma bag and share it with us at the end of the challenge.
  4. It’s up to you regarding how long you participate. You might decide to go plastic-free for a day, a week, a month or longer! However long you choose, it will still make a contributio n.  

If you’re participating we’d be very interested to see how you  go!  Contact us through our details below and let us know what the hardest thing for you to give up was.
