Plastic Free July 2021


Hobsons Bay City Council is stepping up its involvement in Plastic Free July by taking on the "Council Challenge". As a partner, our goal is to encourage residents to reduce plastic use and connect homes, workplaces, schools and business to spread solutions to plastic pollution. 

Hobsons Bay is supporting our community to choose to refuse single-use plastics directly, and doing our part to alleviate the recycling crisis, reducing landfill waste, and mitigating the effects of climate change.

The Plastic Free July challenge provides resources and ideas to help participants (and millions of others around the world) reduce single-use plastic waste every day at home, work, school, and in the community. 

How to get involved (for free!) in six easy steps:

  1. Register for the challenge. Participants receive weekly tips to help them to keep motivated, and enjoy stories from others around the world who are reducing plastic in their lives
  2. Take the Pesky Plastics Quiz to find some popular ideas to reduce plastic waste
