EARTHDAY.ORG Commits to Plastic Free July for Third Straight Year

United Together for Plastic Free Future

Washington, D.C. (July 1, 2023)- EARTHDAY.ORG, the global organizer of Earth Day and lead recruiter to the environmental movement worldwide, has announced their commitment to participate in Plastic-Free July for the third straight year. EARTHDAY.ORG is embracing the spirit of Plastic-Free July to show their unwavering dedication to ending plastic pollution.

“Participating in Plastic-Free July is not only an essential step towards creating a cleaner and healthier planet, but also a catalyst for embracing a plastic-free lifestyle,” said Aidan Charron, EARTHDAY.ORG’s End of Plastics Campaign Coordinator. “By committing to reducing our plastic consumption and embracing sustainable alternatives, we can pave the way for a future free from plastic pollution and safeguard the well-being of our ecosystems for generations to come.”

Since 2019, EARTHDAY.ORG’s End Plastic Pollution campaign has been at the forefront of tackling arguably the most urgent environmental challenge of our time. Plastic pollution has reached alarming levels, causing widespread damage to our ecosystems, wildlife, and human health. With a mission to combat this crisis, the campaign uses a holistic approach year-round to raise awareness and mobilize communities, governments, and individuals to take decisive action in reducing plastic waste by recognizing the interconnectedness of plastic pollution with other environmental issues, such as climate change and biodiversity loss.
