Plastic Free July: will you join us?

1 Month, 1 goal: Go plastic free

Join us for #plasticfreejuly. A month of awareness where people are asked to make a change and stop using single-use plastic items. 

Cutting single-use plastics can be surprisingly challenging but there are easy alternatives. This July we’ll be showing you that a plastic free lifestyle can be fun AND easy! As well as giving you the chance to win some of our favourite plastic free bathroom goodies to get you started! 

Why go plastic free?

We use single-use plastics for just about everything, from cleaning our teeth (dental floss and toothbrushes) and showering, to buying and storing our food and other products. It is durable and lightweight, but it’s these properties that allow it to persist in the environment for hundreds to thousands of years. 

Plastic Free July isn't all about living completely plastic-free - in this day and age that would be pretty near impossible, but it is about going single-use plastic free. And it’s about reducing your plastic footprint in all sorts of ways.

What you can expect from us

We’ll be focusing on how you can go plastic free with your health and beauty routine.

Week 1: How to break the plastic habit (and replace it with a new one) 

Week 2: Inspiration: 7 amazing people who prove that living plastic free is possible

Week 3: Challenge Yourself: How to go plastic free with your health and beauty routine

Week 4: Challenge Businesses: Now you’ve beaten your own plastic habit, let’s go change the world! A guide to how you can effect change on a wider scale.

How can you get involved?

Step out of your comfort zone

We’ll be sharing lots of simple switches you can make to go plastic free with your health and beauty choices this July. As well as some ways that you can really challenge yourself to help you take the next step in your journey.  

Sign up to our newsletter to hints, tips and challenges throughout the month. No spam, just plastic-free living.

 Become an everyday activist

One of the biggest ways we can make a change and rid the world of unnecessary plastic is to get vocal with the businesses and brands we shop with. Voting with your wallet is one of the most impactful ways that we can beat plastic pollution.

See something that you think unnecessarily comes in plastic? Write to the brand or company and tell them about the change you would like to see. Throughout July we’ll be providing you with templates and advice on how to approach brands to really get their attention.

Share Your Journey

Let’s do this together. Share your plastic free swaps on social media under #plasticfreejuly. We’d love it if you tagged us too @acalaonline so that we can see how amazing you guys are!   

And of course, don’t forget to follow @acalaonline on Instagram and Facebook. This is where the giveaways will take place.
