Plastic Free July -
Take the Challenge!
The NH Network Plastics Working Group and the Ten Towns Leaders are working together on this global movement that helps millions of people be part of the solution to plastic pollution. Will you be part of Plastic Free July by choosing to refuse single-use plastics?
Many ideas and actions for Plastic Free July can be found in our toolkit: Start here!
Did you know? In the US, Senators announced a resolution to mark July 2022 as ‘Plastic Pollution Action Month’ and California introduced laws to reduce plastic, increase recycling and shift the economic burden of waste disposal to plastic producers and packagers.
