Plastic Free July: Make Small Changes, Make a Difference!
Plastic Free July is a personal challenge that aligns with a global movement dedicated to reducing plastic waste. By choosing to refuse single-use plastics, we can collectively contribute to a cleaner and healthier environment.
At Hillside Environmental Services, we're here to provide you with the information you need to make a difference. Let's dive into practical tips that can help you on your journey:
Choose Unpackaged Products
Say no to plastic-wrapped products. Opt for loose produce, refillable containers, or package-free options. By supporting businesses offering sustainable alternatives, you contribute to a plastic free future.
Embrace DIY Solutions
Reduce reliance on plastic-packaged items by making your own baked goods and cleaning products. Discover the joy of creating homemade alternatives and reducing plastic waste in your everyday life.
Bring Your Reusable Bags
When you go shopping, don't forget to bring your trusty reusable bags. Stylish and eco-friendly, they help eliminate the need for single-use plastic bags and make a statement for a greener planet.
Support Local Farmers Markets
Connect with your community and enjoy fresh produce at local farmer's markets. By choosing local, you reduce the demand for plastic packaging commonly found in supermarkets.
Plastic Free July Everywhere
Your impact goes beyond your home. Spread the Plastic-Free July spirit:
Engage your family members in Plastic Free July. Teach them about the importance of reducing plastic waste and involve them in making sustainable choices.
Inspire your fellow students, teachers, and staff to join the movement: Organise workshops, presentations, and creative projects to raise awareness about plastic pollution and encourage sustainable practices.
Share the Plastic Free July initiative with your colleagues and management. Propose changes such as using reusable water bottles, avoiding disposable utensils, and minimising plastic packaging in the workplace.
In the Community
Collaborate with local businesses, cafes, and restaurants to promote Plastic Free July. Encourage them to adopt sustainable practices like offering plastic free alternatives and implementing recycling programs.
Plastic Free July is your opportunity to make a positive change. Hillside Environmental Services is here to provide you with practical tips and empower you to reduce single-use plastics.
