Plastic.  Made from oil, a single-use plastic straw is essentially millions of years in the making, only to be used for 5 minutes before being discarded. Even more alarming is the fact that a million tonnes of plastic waste is sent to landfill in Australia every year.

Plastic Free July started as a local initiative in Perth, Western Australia and has grown into a global initiative.

The challenge is quite simple: attempt to consume no single-use plastic during July.

Single-use plastic is anything that is intended to be used once then thrown away. If all single-use plastic sounds a bit daunting, just try the “big four” single-use plastic items:     plastic bags, plastic cups, straws and plastic bottles.
