Every piece of plastic which has ever been produced still exists on Earth somewhere. Australians alone send 1 million tonnes of plastic waste to landfill each year. To help us refuse single-use plastic, Plastic Free July is here to help!
The event was started as a local initiative in Perth by the Western Metropolitan Regional Council (WMRC), developed by a group called Earth Carers. It has now expanded across Australia and the world!
Members of over 15 Victorian environmental organisations have come together to take on the challenge of reducing their plastic use. Participants represent the likes of Australian Youth Climate Coalition (AYCC), CERES Environment Park, Cool Australia, EarthWatch, Farm School, Gould League, Kids Teaching Kids, OASES, Planet Savers, Royal Botanic Gardens Melbourne and the Victorian Association of Environmental Education.
