The BRITA Plastic-free Challenge
At BRITA, we’re committed to promoting sustainable, eco-friendly practices and lifestyles. That's why we're inviting you to help us celebrate Plastic-free July, this summer!
In nearly all of our daily lives we will use something that is made from single-use plastic, whether that is shopping bags, take-away coffee cups, toothbrushes and even some tea bags. The list is almost endless.
The issue is that single use plastic items, many of which are only used for a few minutes before being thrown away, can last a lifetime in landfill sites, in river, or oceans, polluting the environment and endangering wildlife. For example, an everyday single-use plastic water bottle takes, on average, 450 years to biodegrade. That’s why we should all do as much as we can to reduce, reuse and recycle.
So, how can we reduce the amount of single use plastics we use and try go plastic-free for July?
