This is Plastic-free July! There is information on this initiative and great hints for reducing plastic use at Plastic-free July, whether you are a bit of a novice at cutting out plastics or are looking to tackle the more difficult challenges.
You can also sign up for a weekly email with tips and tricks.
Let’s see what we can all do to reduce or eliminate single-use plastic. Don’t be daunted by the size of the challenge – every single time you refuse a disposable cup or a bag you are helping. Then you can just increase your commitment one piece at a time.
If you have made any changes, why not tell us what you have done and how easy/difficult it was by adding comments to this post – or by emailing ECRF.Sustainability@ed.ac.uk.
