Get Involved in Plastic Free July
Date25 June 2019
The City of Rockingham is excited to be participating in Plastic Free July, with residents encouraged to take part in a wide range of events the City is hosting to tackle issues surrounding single use plastics.
Plastic Free July is a global movement that focuses on getting people to reduce their consumption of single use plastic waste in all facets of life. Whether it’s at home, work, school or even a local café or shop, participants are encouraged to use compostable or reusable alternatives.
City of Rockingham Mayor Barry Sammels said Plastic Free July offered residents the opportunity to make important lifestyle changes that would benefit the environment.
As a City that is home to an abundance of amazing natural assets including 37 km of breathtaking coastline and stunning wildlife, it’s vital we take every step we can to preserve the environment that we are fortunate to call home,” Mayor Sammels said.
“The City recently adopted a strong policy on single use plastics and balloons, so taking part in Plastic Free July is another positive step in the right direction.
“There will be a range of exciting events and workshops taking place across the City throughout July and I encourage all residents to get involved and learn about the great alternatives that can become new habits forever.”
