Plastic Free July!

Say NO to single use plastic! Take the challenge.

July is here! It's a great time to look at how we can avoid single-use plastics. Studies suggest that inaction on single-use plastics can results in more plastic than fish in the ocean by 2050.

The UNSW Sustainability team in collaboration with other departments and faculties are running a campaign to encourage the UNSW community to take strong action on reducing plastic pollution in recognition of the Plastic Free July campaign 2018.

As part of the global campaign, retailers across campus are participating in this initiative to reduce single-use plastic items, including plastic bags, straws and disposable cups.

How to get involved?

1. Refuse   2. Reuse   3. Recycle
