International Plastic Bag Free Day - 03 July.

Every year on July 3rd, International Plastic Bag Free Day encourages people to cut down on the use of plastic bags.

Most people only use a plastic bag one time, then throw it away. Single-use plastic bags have motivated some cities to ban them altogether. 

Despite these regulations, plastic bags continue to be a massive problem for our planet. Each year, 8 million metric tons of plastic end up in the ocean harming fish and wildlife. When plastic enters the food chain, it can also harm human health.

Zero Waste Europe established International Plastic Bag Free Day in 2009. In recent years, the day has become part of the Break Free From Plastic movement. This campaign brings together an international movement of plastic pollution fighters. As of 2020, the movement has grown to nearly 6,500 individuals and over 2,400 organizations.
