So yeah, July’s over. But who said Plastic Free July should stop in July?
If you made it through the month of July without plastics, yay you! You rock! Give yourself a pat on the back.
If you didn’t, don’t worry. It’s a step-by-step thing. You’d do better next time.
The big question is…What happens after July? Should you stop?

No! Don’t stop!

We’re taking the plastic free thing beyond July. We still have a long way to go in saving our planet from drowning in plastics. So, you shouldn’t just stop living without plastics after July. You should continue. Take the challenge to the next month and all through the year if you can.

And if you’re new to the challenge, it’s not too late. You can start your plastic free challenge today. It doesn’t matter what month you’re starting. All that matters is, you’re eliminating plastic and saving the planet. That’s it!

So, how do you begin?

Simple. Just eliminate. Get rid of it. Ditch the plastic!

Here’s a quick summary/reminder:

– Bring your own reusable bag, straw, cup, cutlery and plate.

– Refill your favourite products if refilling is available in your location.
