Join millions of people reducing their plastic waste.

Plastic Free July is a global movement that helps millions of people be part of the solution to plastic pollution – so we can have cleaner streets, oceans, and beautiful communities. Will you be part of Plastic Free July by choosing to refuse single-use plastics? Register below and take the pledge.

After six years Plastic Free July outgrew its home and we setup the Plastic Free Foundation Ltd as an independent, not-for-profit charity in 2017 to better support participants and grow the campaign.

Over the last 5 years, participants have collectively avoided 10 billion kgs of waste, including 1.4 billion kgs of plastic – more than the world’s biggest cleanup efforts combined

The campaign has inspired 223 million behaviour changes and 87% of participants make changes that become habits, setting a benchmark for behaviour change best practice. An average reduction of 18 kg in waste and recycling per person per year has been achieved, meaning an incredible 4.1% decrease in waste generation.
