Plastic Free July® is a vital initiative of the Plastic Free Foundation. It allows them to work towards their vision of seeing a world free of plastic waste. From humble beginnings in 2011, the award-winning Plastic Free July campaign is the result of years of hard work.

It is a global movement that helps millions of people be part of the solution to plastic pollution – the aim is to have cleaner streets, oceans, and beautiful communities. You can sign up and take part by refusing to use single-use plastics.

Everyone can participate, including individuals, workplaces, businesses, local government, schools and communities. There are loads of great ideas and tips on their website, so have a look here.

Once you’ve got through July, keep going and building on what you’ve already achieved.

At Meraki Cacao, being sustainable is so important to us. We’re not perfect, but we try our best and will continue to improve to be as sustainable as possible. We promise never to use single-use plastics for packaging our bars. All our packaging is recyclable, and our labels are printed on recycled paper using vegetable-based inks.
