Our Top 25 plastic-free awareness adverts

July is Plastic Free month. Uzwelo was started with the aim of reducing and recycling waste fabric and creating a better world. An ambitious goal, yes! Nevertheless, one that can be achieved if we all do our bit.

So, in keeping with the #MakingMovesForThePlanet we thought we would showcase some of our favourite adverts from around the world raising awareness of the plastic threat to our environment.

In our mind they perfectly highlight the threat that single-use plastic poses to the environment while also inspiring us to make positive lifestyle changes.

We would value your comments on what is your favourite from this list, or post one that you think is worthy of mention.
