Plastic Free July is a global initiative set up by the Plastic Free Foundation in 2011 to educate and encourage people to cut down on their plastic consumption through habit changes and community building. With 326 million participants worldwide in 190 countries, Plastic-Free July hopes individuals continue these positive habits beyond a single month.

To participate in the Plastic-Free July challenge, all you really have to do is make a commitment to use less plastic during the month of July.
