The Plastic Free Pledge is an effective way you, as an individual, can have a definite and lasting impact on the environment by reducing plastic waste from your day to day lives, as little or as much as you want. You can opt for ditching single use plastic bottles or perhaps you’d like to say no to all of those single use plastic bags? Be as creative as you like and remember no pledge is too small, every reduction of plastic being consumed will have an impact on our environment.
