Join SAVE THE MERMAIDS for Plastic Free July to make a SPLASH!
Quit all single-use plastics for the month of July! Sign up with us at www.savethemermaids.org/plasticfreejuly to be a part of this challenge. Throughout the month we will be giving away amazing Mermaid and Merman swag for all the active participants in Plastic Free July! Prizes throughout the month will include TEEKI pants, made from up-cycled plastic water bottles, Save the Mermaids shirts, stickers, necklaces, a swim suit for your summer collection, artwork, and more! We cannot wait to inspire each other as a community and help spread awareness for our beautiful Oceans worldwide. At the end of the month, those who send us a writeup of their challenges, triumphs, and experiences this month will be featured on our blog and gifted a FREE Save the Mermaids glass water bottle!
The challenge is quite simple. Attempt to refuse single-use plastics during July. “Single-Use” includes plastic shopping bags, plastic cups, straws, plastic packaging, wrappers… basically anything that’s intended only to be used once and then discarded. Remember it’s not going to be easy! It’s a challenge, not a competition so do not work on being perfect. The goal is to learn together and aspire to create change!
Collect any unavoidable single-use plastic you buy. Keep it in a dilemma bag and share it with us at the end of the challenge. Best shares we will also be adding to our blog at the end of the month!
Pledge to be “Plastic Free for the Sea” at www.savethemermaids.org/plasticfreejuly by Sunday July 3 to receive your Starter Package and be in the run for goodies all month!
Refuse to use single-use plastic throughout the month.
Post to your social media throughout the month (minimum once a week) with your motivational tips, and challenges you have found. Make sure to tag @save_the_mermaids
so we can watch your progress!
