Take the pledge to refuse single-use cups

Plastic Free supporters are joining with local MPs, Senators, Mayors, CEOs and celebrities taking a small step and committing to refusing single-use cups this July. Taking part in Plastic Free July and sharing your pledge publicly is a great way to show leadership and inspire others to join in. Together we can make a difference and stop billions of single-use cups ending up in landfill or as litter each year.

How to Get Involved

It’s your choice, simply bring, borrow or stay. Pledge to refuse single-use cups. By sharing your pledge on social media others can see how simple it is to take a step towards ending plastic pollution.

Consider contacting your local elected official and sharing the campaign with them by asking them to join with you in taking the pledge and choosing reusable cups.

Check your impact by using the Keep Cup calculator to find out the big difference your small step will make.

Think about it. Why would you make something that you’re going to use for a few minutes out of a material that’s basically going to last forever, and you’re just going to throw it away. What’s up with that?
