Take up the challenge - can you go without plastic for the month of July? Or even for a week or a day?
Plastic Free July is a global movement - join in and see how much you can reduce single-use plastic waste everyday at home, work, school and even at your local cafe.
Check out the ideas and resources on www.plasticfreejuly.org and share your successes on Mahurangi Wastebusters fb page.
And for the first time ever there's going to be a New Zealand wide launch party! It’s a chance to connect up with other people around the country who are taking part in the challenge, learn some new tips and tricks to go plastic free and meet Rebecca Prince Ruis the founder of Plastic Free July. Rebecca started the challenge 10 years ago in Perth Australia with 30 friends taking part. Last year in New Zealand over 250,000 people took part in the challenge.
The virtual launch party will be held on Wednesday 24th June from 7pm- 8.30pm using Zoom. We will also be having an awesome line up of NZ presenters
