Plastic Free July: Take the challenge

Last year, the CQUniversity Sustainability team launched the Ditch the Disposables campaign with a clear aim to reduce single-use plastics.

CQUniversity is not only working hard to educate staff and students on the harmful impacts of single-use plastic but also aims to lead by example. The University has embarked on a long-term sustainability journey and is working with particular areas to demonstrate its commitment to the environment.

Join the global movement of Plastic Free July!  Be a part of the solution to plastic pollution – so we can have cleaner streets, oceans, and beautiful communities.

Will you be part of Plastic Free July by choosing to refuse single-use plastics?

About the Challenge

Plastic Free July provides resources and ideas to help you (and millions of others around the world) reduce single-use plastic waste every day at home, work, school, and even at your local café. The movement has inspired over 250 million participants in 177 countries.
