Plastic Free July is a global movement that helps millions of people be part of the solution to plastic pollution – so we can have cleaner streets, oceans, and beautiful communities. So what are you waiting for? Join Pirani and millions of other people working to reduce our waste this July!
Are you going to be part of the change?
We have made it easy for you to remember to show up sustainably this month by making some fun phone wallpapers! Click on our Plastic Free July phone wallpapers below and download them so you can help spread awareness this July & have as a daily reminder to go plastic-free!
Here are some more easy changes you can do this July and year round to reduce your waste and #partysustainably:
Think Reusable, Not Disposable.
Unfortunately, most BBQ “essentials” actually aren’t good for the environment. So, instead of buying paper plates and plastic products, bring out your reusables and party on! We make it super easy to #partysustainably with our reusable insulated tumbler. They come in 7 different colors, are dishwasher safe, keep your drinks ice cold for 12 hours or hot up to 6 hours, and are easily stackable! With benefits like that, why would you even think about using disposables?
Scale down your meat consumption!
Fill your grill with more veggie skewers and meat alternatives instead. According to a study this month in the journal Scientific Reports, if everyone in the country reduced their consumption of beef, pork, and poultry by a quarter and substituted plant proteins, we’d save about 82 million metric tons of greenhouse gas emissions per year. That is a big difference if we decide to all work together and make small changes!
If you just can’t imagine a BBQ without actual hamburgers and hot dogs, it’s worth shopping around for unpackaged meats from a local butcher or a deli-counter. Be sure to grab your reusable container when you go shopping & help reduce those pesky polystyrene trays that most meat products come in.
Enjoy the show!
Fireworks emit high levels of lead and toxins and most of the time come wrapped in plastic, so we really need to be mindful of them this holiday. We know that fireworks are a holiday staple so instead of purchasing your own, watch your neighborhoods display or catch a viewing of a show on tv.
Let’s remind ourselves to never discount the power of one. We can make a monumental difference together when each person plays a small role.
