New Zealand’s Plastic Free July campaign is building on its wins of July 2019 with simple swaps to reduce single-use plastic and hard-to-recycle soft plastic.
In 2019, 257,802 New Zealanders took part in Plastic Free July Aotearoa to refuse single use plastic. We also saw the government ban single use plastic shopping bags, the two main NZ supermarket chains encouraging the use of reusable containers for their meat and deli products in store, and reusable cup swap schemes by Ideal Cup and Again and Again expanding around the country.
So, what’s left to do? A lot, in fact.
Plastic Free July 2020 campaigners urge Kiwis to reassess how much single use plastic they still consume and make some simple swaps:
Solid Waste Manager Kitty Waghorn is keen to see residents get behind the initiative, to realise that there are alternatives to using plastic.
“Our District has some excellent plastic free initiatives and many businesses show support by accepting reusable food containers and coffee cups, and some have banned plastic straws. The focus of Plastic Free July is on simple ideas that generate big reductions in single-use plastics. Every Kiwi can do something small that makes a massive impact on the environment,” says Kitty.
