Plastic Free July

Reusable products for Plastic free JulyJoin many of our Hobsons Bay Librarians and millions of people around the world reducing their plastic waste. Plastic Free July is a global movement that helps people be part of the solution to plastic pollution – so we can have cleaner streets, oceans, and beautiful communities.
