Swan residents can learn how to cut down on plastics for Plastic Free July

Residents in the City of Swan will take part in a plastic-free event next month to help the environment.

The month-long event is a partnership between the Eastern Metropolitan Regional Council, the City of Swan, Mundaring in Transition, Hills Sustainability Group and Earth Carers.

The Plastic Free July Pledge encourages residents to avoid all single-use plastic items for a day, a week or all of July.

Eastern Metropolitan Regional Council chief executive Peter Schneider said it was great to see so many groups coming together to achieve a better outcome for the environment.

“By working together, these groups are able to provide a diverse range of informative workshops and activities that will appeal to a range of people,” he said.

“It’s important to recognise that different approaches will work for different people and by collaborating we can ensure that everyone understands what they can do to reduce single-use plastic consumed every day.”
