Plastic Free July

Did you know that the average person in the UK consumes 150 plastic water bottles a year? That’s over three a week!


Manufacturing these bottles is energy-intensive, relying on fossil fuels and contributing to greenhouse gas emissions. Additionally, the resulting plastic poses a significant environmental threat due to its inability to biodegrade. Single-use plastic can persist in the environment for up to 450 years, potentially releasing harmful chemicals into the soil and water, which is known to cause health issues in humans and wildlife.


Plastic waste also wreaks havoc on marine ecosystems, ensnaring and poisoning sea life. As these bottles break down, they generate microplastics that infiltrate the food chain, potentially affecting human health.


Unfortunately, we can’t recycle our way out of the problem. Recycling rates for plastic bottles are disappointingly low, with many ending up in landfills or as litter due to contamination or inadequate recycling systems.


Moreover, the recycling habit perpetuates waste and pollution as new bottles are continuously produced to meet demand. But you can break this pattern by significantly reducing your plastic consumption.


Plastic Free July is a movement aimed at reducing plastic pollution. It’s an excellent opportunity to reassess your habits and adopt more sustainable alternatives. Whether you’re looking for simple and quick changes or more significant adjustments to challenge yourself, you can find helpful suggestions here.
