ALEC urges our members and supporters to get involved in Plastic Free July. Single-use plastic is an overwhelming challenge of the modern world. Humans produce over 300 million tons of plastic every year, much of it designed for single use. The top five sources of single use plastic are plastic bags, plastic bottles, plastic containers, plastic takeaway cups and plastic straws.
Plastic Free July is an international movement, which encourages people to participate by refusing single-use plastics for the month of July.
ALEC will be holding public education stalls on single use plastics for two of the July Todd Mall Markets, and is working towards a local campaign against single use plastics. If you are interested in being involved in the local campaign email [email protected]
