Poll: Will you be joining the Plastic Free July challenge?

Simone Borgstede from Wellington City Council

Today marks the first day of Plastic Free July - a global movement to reduce plastic pollution.
Everyone is encouraged to get involved, even if it's just making a few small changes to your purchases or routine. It's not about a handful of people doing plastic-free perfectly, it's about millions of people around the world doing it imperfectly - and it works!
Will you be joining the challenge this month?
