Plastic Free July 2022 Wrap Up

Sierra Club Ontario plastic cleanup event at Cherry BeachOur third annual Plastic free July has finished and I want to thank everyone who joined us in the challenge. Whether you had a plastic free picnic, joined us for the Twitterstorm, hosted a clean up in your community or made some changes to plastic use in your household — we appreciate your hard work!

We ended off the month with a beach clean up at Cherry Beach in Toronto. We had a great turnout and beautiful weather! Thank you to everyone who came out!

The top items we found during the clean up were cigarette butts and plastic bottle caps.

In just over an hour, we were able to collect and recycle [through Terracycle’s free UNSMOKE Cigarette Recycling Program] an entire bag of cigarette butts.
