Take the Plastic Free Pledge this July

Join participants around the world taking a small step by pledging to refuse either single-use cups, plastic drink bottles or plastic food wrap this July. Committing to take a Plastic Free Pledge and sharing it publicly is a great way to show leadership and inspire others. Together we can make a difference and stop billions of single-use plastic items ending up in landfill or litter each year.

How to Get Involved

It’s your choice, simply choose your item, download the pledge card, take a photo and share on social media so others can be inspired to take a step towards ending plastic pollution. Some people take a photo just holding a pledge card and others invite a group to join in and hold up their reusable alternative to single-use plastic. Rather than focusing on the plastic pollution problem this campaign is a great way to visually share solutions in a visual way and inspire others.

Including #PlasticFreePledge and tagging @PlasticFreeJuly on social posts helps spread the word.

Consider sharing the campaign with your local elected official or workplace or community leader and inviting them to join you in taking the pledge and choosing reusable alternatives.

To share your pledge photo please email your (landscape) photo to info@plasticfreejuly.org

  • I’m choosing to [Bring my own cup/bring my own bottle/use reusable containers instead of wrap] this July. Every [takeaway cup/takeaway bottle/plastic wrap] I avoid makes a difference by reducing landfill. By being more resourceful (and less wasteful), together we can make a real difference #PlasticFreePledge.

We’re pledging to refuse single-use plastic

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?
