This year, Plastic Free July NZ is focusing on simple swaps, to build on many of the things we all learned during the recent lockdown.
During the month, Council’s social media channels will be sharing tips, bright ideas and competitions to help you find ways of swapping out plastic for more sustainable alternatives.
Whether it’s committing to use a reusable coffee cup, or finding alternatives to cling film for storing food, whatever change you decide to make, large or small, helps everyone be part of reducing plastic in our lives.
With the recent changes to kerbside recycling this is also a great opportunity to work out how you can reduce the amount of plastic you need to recycle
Plastic Free July NZ is coordinated by Wasteminz, supported by local government across New Zealand. For more information check out the Plastic Free July Aotearoa Facebook page.
