A month without single-use plastic? Why you oughta join Plastic free July
Environmental activists are encouraging people around the world to ditch plastic use for a month.
Plastic free July encourages people to refuse single-use plastic items for the entire month in order to raise awareness about plastic pollution.
The campaign is designed to encourage consumers to refuse single-use plastics such as straws, takeaway coffee cups and 'disposable' shopping bags.
Two environmental advocates explain why the movement is important and describe their own green initiatives.
