#GoPlasticFree in July

Once again, July marks the Marine Conservation Society’s official Plastic Challenge month #GoPlasticFree. A month where they challenge the nation to stop using single-use plastic. Read all about it here: Marine Conservation Society.  Now, for the second year in a row, Cityscape Recruitment are jumping in again!

Cityscape Recruitment are challenging themselves to have no single-use plastic in the office for the whole of July. We are in week two and what a challenge it has been so far. You would think having done it before, it would be easy and however, it still is extremely difficult! We have even been successful in influencing one of our third-party food delivery companies to #GoPlasticFree this month – they weren’t allowed to deliver anything in single use plastic. No single use plastic means no plastic drinks bottles (unless they are the reusable kind), no plastic shopping bags, no coffee cooler cups, no takeaway coffees (they have plastic lids!), no microwave meals, no sandwich wrappers, no salad bowls, no dry cleaning as it is covered in a protectable plastic cover! If the plastic is meant to be thrown away after we’ve used it, it’s deemed as single use. The list is seemingly endless!

#GoPlasticFree is a challenge.

However, it’s a challenge that’s worth doing. By taking part, it is highlighting to us (and our friends and family) exactly how much plastic we actually use and could be avoiding. As we did last year, to help raise money for the Marine Conservation Society at the same time, if any of the Cityscape Recruitment team choose to bring single-use plastic into the office, they will need to donate to our Marine Conservation Society collection pot.

We have been avid supporters of the Marine Conservation Society for some time now and have carried out various activities to raise money for and awareness of the vital work they do. Please click here for more information.
