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!

To support local businesses, we'd like to dedicate Plastic-Free July to showcasing local businesses taking responsibility and doing their bit to reduce single-use plastic, and then have an awesome party to celebrate them!

But... we need your help finding identifying them. From now until midnight Sunday 26 July we want you to point out your local plastic-free superheroes.

So…
- if your local takeout swapped out plastic containers for home compostable ones, we want to hear about it!
- if you know of an awesome cafe refusing to use single-use cups, we want to hear about it!
- if your online orders (food, drink and otherwise) arrive free of plastic - we want to hear about it!

Even if your local food joint provides incentives for you to BYO containers, you know it - we want to hear about it!

Free Dishwasher

Christopher from Brooklyn

F&P Nautilus. I've had this for a number of years now and it's been brilliant - but it does need new door springs, which you can get and fit pretty easily. And a new latch (the door still stays shut but not for a wash, you need a child-proof clasp or something to keep it shut when … View moreF&P Nautilus. I've had this for a number of years now and it's been brilliant - but it does need new door springs, which you can get and fit pretty easily. And a new latch (the door still stays shut but not for a wash, you need a child-proof clasp or something to keep it shut when operating which I've been doing for some time). Apart from that it works perfectly and cleans really well. But we've just got a new one.

No traders please, a needy household only. I'm up 40 steps so you'll need two people, but it's not that heavy, maybe 50kg.

Cheers.
