We encourage participants to use what they have, buy second hand and support local businesses. If you prefer to purchase reusable items online, consider the range of approved retailers that Plastic Free July has officially partnered with. These retailers support our Foundation and align with our values.
We use an affiliate link with Onya Life, a local brand we’ve been using for years. Buying through this link supports our work as a not-for-profit organisation to bring about behaviour change and work towards a world without plastic.
For me, saying goodbye to plastic bags REALLY happened when I stopped saying 'it's okay this one time'. I started doing hilarious things like carrying six avocados in my handbag or wrapping all my shopping up in my gym towel.
