July is upon us and we are proud to say that we (Good Change) are participating and supporting the Plastic Free July movement. This global movement helps millions of people be part of the solution to plastic pollution – so we can have cleaner streets, oceans, and beautiful communities.

For the month of July we will be running a series of giveaways graciously provided for by NZ businesses who are firm believers in an eco-friendly lifestyle. Be sure to follow us on Instagram to JOIN IN on the fun.

We are also participating in the Plastic Free July Challenge where we post daily TIPS on how we can reduce and eventually eliminate our plastic usage. Best part is – this wouldn’t involve major changes and / or spending on your part. Join us on Instagram and Facebook and be part of the solution.
