Plastic Free July

All month long we’ll be bringing you sales, education, and challenges in honor of ZeroWasteStore’s 4th birthday and Plastic Free July! 

Plastic Free July helped divert 2.1 million tonnes of waste and recycling just in 2021 alone.

A message from one of our founders:

Transitioning to a zero waste lifestyle takes dedication and commitment, and it doesn’t just happen overnight. For anyone who's new to the movement, the thought of living zero waste can feel a bit overwhelming.

We are here to let you know that there’s no “right way” to be zero waste. The idea is to do your best to reduce your individual footprint. The most important thing you can do is continuously ask yourself, “How can I be better?” and then just commit to doing that. No one is perfect. The good thing about going zero waste is that you don’t have to be! 

Zero waste can mean different things to different people, so you should be fueled by what you care about most. For example, do you despise seeing trash along your local river shore? Are you concerned about sea turtles that may consume plastic litter floating in the ocean? Are you worried that bee species have continuously declined due to pesticide use? Have you decided to go vegan to help save the animals and our environment? Is ensuring that your child will have a healthy, thriving planet to grow up in important to you?

There are so many reasons to take greater care of the environment. What’s yours?

July is a big month for us here at ZeroWasteStore!

It’s our birthday month AND it’s Plastic Free July. We’re joining 100 million+ people around the world working towards reducing their reliance and use of single use plastic during July! 

Plastic Free July helped divert 2.1 million tonnes of waste and recycling just in 2021 alone. As a company dedicated to providing zero waste and sustainable products to everyone, this is a global movement ZWS is very proud and excited to take part in.

We’re hosting our own challenge that everyone here at ZeroWasteStore will be participating in, and we hope you will be too! You can choose to join for one item during the week, try the whole week, or go big for the entire month!
