Plastic Free July is a global yearly challenge where millions of people give up single use plastic during the month of July. It aims to raise awareness of the amount of single-use disposable plastic items in our lives and challenges people to do something about it.
On top of this, July 3rd is Plastic Bag Free Day – a perfect day to use a reusable bag! Shoppers worldwide are using approximately 500 billion single-use plastic bags per year. This translates to about a million bags every minute across the globe, or 150 bags a year for every person on earth. And the number is rising.
Here at DevelopmentAid, we celebrate #InternationalPlasticBagFreeDay with personalized reusable bags, which are also 100% biodegradable.
We #BeatPlasticPollution by promoting better alternatives. What do you do to #BreakFreeFromPlastic?
