The UC San Diego Library Joins the Plastic-Free Challenge for a Month

 

 

Plastic Free July Exhibit
#choosetorefuse
July 1-31, 2018 
Geisel Lobby, East Wing 

The Library’s Sustainability Committee invites you to reduce your plastic consumption for the month of July!  Plastic is ubiquitous in packaging and convenience products, and going plastic-free can be surprisingly challenging but there are alternatives. Here are some steps that you can take each day to reduce your consumption of plastic:

  •  Refuse plastic straws by choosing no straw at all or substituting a glass or steel one.
  • Skip the bottled water by carrying your own refillable one.
  • Consider eliminating other types of plastic from your life such as plastic plates, plastic wrap, utensils and to-go boxes. Get creative and share your ideas!

Plastic Free July started in 2011 in Australia, and it has quickly become a global movement. The Library put together a modest display near Audrey’s Café. Please check it out and join us on this adventure. Sign up for the challenge.
