Take the pledge and support Lithgow’s Plastic Free July morning tea Wednesday 17th July at the Lithgow Library.

Did you know; Australians use 1.3 million tonnes of plastic each year!

Plastic Free July is a global movement that helps millions of people be part of the solution to plastic pollution – so we can have cleaner streets, oceans, and beautiful communities. 

To celebrate Plastic Free July, Lithgow Council will be holding a plastic free morning tea at Lithgow Library on Wednesday 17 July 2019 commencing at 10.30am. 

Councillor Cassandra Coleman said “Most of us are aware that plastic will survive in the environment for hundreds of years. Rather than biodegrading, plastic photodegrades, breaking down into smaller and smaller pieces. Plastic is also lightweight and moisture resistant, meaning it can float easily in air and water, and travel long distances. To celebrate Plastic Free July and encourage people to Choose to Refuse single use plastic, Council would like to invite the community to Morning Tea.  Please come along and do your part in reducing single use plastics.”

The best way to limit creating plastic waste is to prevent using it in the first place; avoid, reduce, reuse and recycle!

If you can’t make to morning tea and you would like to pledge your support online visit Plastic Free July or Councils website.
