Each year a good number of British bloggers sign up for Plastic Free July.

“What” you cry “Live plastic free? for all of July?”

Not quite! It’s all about cutting one use plastic – bottles, bags that kind of thing. However definitions of one use plastic can vary.
The aim is to cut your consumption of one use plastic, for one month; how much you choose to cut is up to  you – read my take.

A bit of history

Plastic Free July started in 2011 in Australia  in 2013 it went global. They have a great website and are all round good eggs.

It’s really important to link up with U.K. based plastivists who will be sharing throughout the month. While some solutions like solid shampoo from Lush can be accessed UK wide, many are local.

  1. Hooray – welcome aboard. Whatever you do it’s all less plastic which is a huge achievement. We are tweeting about it join us at #pfjuk

  2. You’ve inspired me! Have just signed up to Plastic Free July to really try to curb my use of plastics. Not sure how well I’ll do but will definitely try my best…

  3. Not sure I am either! Lets see how it goes! I used to make freezer jam -needs less sugar. Needs a freezer obv.

  4. Good for you for giving up glass-jar food! Not sure if I’m that strong! I’ll have to find some organic strawberries at the farmers market to make my own jam 🙂
