Plastic Free July

This July, let us serve Mother Earth by saying no to single-use plastics.
 

“Nature is in essence Divinity itself. All this is Divine. All this is God. So, tread softly, move reverentially, utilise gratefully.” 

 

Sri Sathya Sai, 15 October 1966

Plastic pollution is a pressing environmental issue, with Australians consuming on average 130 kilograms of plastic per person each year. While plastic is a convenient and versatile material, most plastic products are designed to be used once, before being discarded. Sadly, less than 12% of plastic is recycled, and the remainder ends up in landfill, or worse, polluting our oceans and other ecosystems for hundreds of years before breaking down into microplastics. 

 

Plastic-Free July is an environmental initiative that helps us to take action on plastic pollution.  We encourage members and devotees to take part in this challenge by remembering the Five Rs: 

 

  • REFUSE to purchase plastic products

  • REDUCE reliance on plastic through Ceiling on Desires

  • REUSE, repurpose and repair existing items

  • RETHINK consumption habits

  • RECYCLE a final resort! 

 

For ideas on how to get started, see our weekly Plastic-Free challenges. By minimising our use of single-use plastics, we can help ensure a cleaner, healthier future for our ecosystems and communities.
