Project Description


Choose2Refuse: the app that will let users monitor their use of single use plastics helping tell the story of the impac Plastic Free July has on the world


Data Story


An idea developed from a fresh look and analysis of Ipsos reports about Plastic Free July and World Environment Day
There's so much potential growth for Plastic Free July by looking at existing participation based on % of population. We predict that Plastic Free July could achieve significant growth if every country reached the same level of registration as Australia with the same level of participation of the country with the highest rate. Which country was that? Hint: it was NOT Australia, it was a country that didn't host a single event for Plastic Free July in 2019!
Watch our video have to find out which country.
