NEP Supports Plastic Free July

NEP Supports Plastic Free July



July 1, 2022

NEP UK is committed to making smart use of the earth’s resources and minimising our environmental impact. This is why we are supporting Plastic Free July!

We strive to carry out our work sustainably in every sense and eliminate the use of single-use plastics at work, or during a production / event.

We at NEP are in full support of Plastic Free July. We want to share this challenge with you, so you can contribute in your own way at work, home, or in your wider community!

What is Plastic Free July?


This foundation is anon-for-profit charity that are committed to working towards the vision of creating a world where plastic waste isn’t a problem we have to consider anymore.  

Every year in July, 100+million participants in 190 countries have the opportunity to join the global movement with their mission and take on the challenge to reduce plastic pollution in their own lives. Because if we all make small changes, we’ll contribute to a massive difference.

This massive difference will mean real results for our world, people, and wildlife: we’re talking cleaner streets, cleaner oceans, and altogether healthier, and less wasteful communities.


So, What Are We Doing to Help?


Here at NEP, we’ve made our commitment to sustainability and reducing plastic a priority and have taken steps to ensure we’re making a difference in small but effective ways. Here are some of our ideas that might inspire you:

·      Utilising reusable products. Integrating more reusable products into our work is a core part of NEP’s strategy for reducing the use of single plastic. For example, we are banning the use of plastic containers of milk, instead opting for recyclable glass bottles in our offices. We are also swapping cable ties for reusable Velcro straps at our onsite productions.


·      Using reusable water bottles. At NEP, because we avoid using single-use plastic, we have supplied all our members of staff with their own reusable bottle and given out branded water bottles at some of our events (such as Wimbledon 2022).


·       Avoiding littering in any way possible. This ensures that litter doesn’t become part of the earth’s larger water cycle; being washed from the streets into the sewers and from there finding their way into the ocean.



·       Avoid filling your general waste bin with plastics that can be recycled. This can be easily avoided by limiting your usage of plastic packaging in general. Biodegradable bin liners are also a great idea! In addition, starting a compost in your garden can help you reuse your waste during gardening.


Remember: if we all seethe bigger picture, do our bit, and start making small changes in our own lives, we can start seeing some incredible results for our planet.
