Plastic Free July

Plastic Free July reusables

Will you take the challenge?

All too often we see plastic ending up in our waterways which is harming our native wildlife. Plastic from bags, cigarettes, straws, fishing tackle etc. pose serious threats to animals like platypuses, turtles and birds who can ingest it or get tangled in plastic bags and killed.

HOW YOU CAN HELP:

  1. Take up the Plastic Free July challenge - Try going plastic free for a day, a week or a month! Even try just avoiding the top four single use plastic products. Our friends at Horsham Urban Landcare have some excellent ideas on easy ways to cut back on plastic.
  2. Enjoy our waterways responsibly: Take all rubbish with you including fishing line and hooks - the only thing you leave behind should be footprints!
  3. Be an environmental champion: If you do see plastic by our waterways, pick it up and dispose of it properly - our furry animal friends will thank you for it!
