Plastic Free July 2021
Plastic Free July is a movement that started in Australia in 2011 by Rebecca Prinze Ruiz who wanted to start a simple community initiative to help her friends and coworkers reduce plastic. Ten years on it’s grown into a global movement that inspired an estimated 326 million participants in 177 countries.
