At Human and Hope, it is no lie that we are here to help our project partners to protect the future of Cambodia. The funds we raise help educate the young generations of this beautiful country to continue to develop the nation. One other way to improve their future is by going plastic free in July (and forever).
What is the Plastic Free July movement and how can you work to be more environmentally friendly? Well, we are here to educate you on how you can make a difference not just for Cambodia but for the world!
What is “Plastic Free July”?
The Plastic Free movement happens in July where millions of people take part to help with the plastic pollution. The aim of the Plastic Free July is to make the streets cleaner, safer oceans and beautiful communities.
The Plastic Free movement works to provide resources and ideas to help people reduce single-use plastic waste everyday in the home, work, school and local restaurants.
The Plastic Free month of July, since it began has inspired over 250 million people in 177 countries to make small changes in their day to day life to help improve not only the use of one time use plastics, but to improve the environment as a whole.
