The Plastic Problem
Plastic has become an integral part of our lives, but its overuse and mismanagement have led to severe environmental consequences. From single-use plastic bottles and bags to disposable cutlery and food packaging, the ubiquity of plastic has created a mounting crisis. Plastic waste contaminates our oceans, harms marine life, pollutes the soil, and poses a significant threat to ecosystems worldwide.
Plastic Free July as a Catalyst for Change
Plastic Free July, initiated in 2011, has grown into a global movement that inspires millions of people to take action against plastic pollution. This month-long challenge encourages participants to refuse single-use plastics, find sustainable alternatives, and promote a plastic-free lifestyle.
