Keep Australia Beautiful: Australia’s 7-Day Plastic Pledge

Australia’s 7-Day Plastic Pledge |16-22 August, 2021

Our beautiful country needs help to protect its biodiversity. Plastic that ends up in nature can take up to 500 years to decompose and can harm animals that ingest it.

This year, we’re putting plastic in the spotlight as we pledge to refuse plastic to prevent it from becoming litter.


Make a pledge: Choose what plastic item you’re giving up for the week and commit!

Lead by example: Swap out your single-use plastic item with eco-friendly alternatives.

Spread the word! Share how you’re ditching plastic and tell your friends about it.
