Plastic-Free July

Plastic-Free July

Plastic Free July has just arrived, offering a perfect opportunity to reconsider our plastic consumption habits. At EcoPackables, we’re passionate about helping you make sustainable choices, especially when it comes to your packaging needs. This article will help you prepare for Plastic Free July, providing tips and solutions to reduce plastic use in your business.

What is Plastic Free July?

Plastic Free July is a global movement encouraging individuals and businesses to reduce their plastic consumption for a month. The goal is to raise awareness about the environmental impact of plastic and inspire long-term changes. By participating, you can contribute to reducing plastic pollution and promoting a more sustainable future.

Why Go Plastic-Free?

Reducing plastic use is crucial due to its significant environmental impact. Plastic pollution harms wildlife, pollutes oceans, and contributes to climate change. Additionally, decreasing plastic consumption can reduce exposure to harmful chemicals found in some plastics. Choosing plastic-free options supports a circular economy and reduces the demand for new plastic production.

How to go Plastic Free

Start by reviewing your business’s plastic use, particularly in packaging and shipping. Set achievable targets for reducing plastic, and switch to eco-friendly packaging solutions like kraft paper mailers, recycled cardboard boxes, or glassine bags. Educate your team about Plastic Free July, encourage their participation, and partner with suppliers who offer sustainable alternatives.
