Plastic Free July has grown from a humble office initiative in Perth to a global movement with over 100 million participants in 190 countries taking part in the annual challenge.
Council is promoting the Plastic Free July global movement by organising events and urging the community to be part of our ongoing campaign 'Swap this for that!' by taking the pledge.
As well as providing education and initiatives for the community, Council has developed Swap for Good, a program to support and empower businesses in moving away from single-use plastics.
