Our Plastic Free July Ideas

As a digital payments app, reducing plastic waste is an integral part of our values as a company. Which is why we are excited to be supporting Plastic Free July as our monthly charity cause! Find out more about our charity partnerships here.


It is no secret that plastic is polluting our planet, from our oceans to the food we eat, plastic is everywhere. However, Plastic Free July is fighting to change that by encouraging participants to give up single-use plastics for the month of July in an effort to bring about lasting change.


To kick off our campaign with Plastic Free July we're sharing our TOP plastic free ideas so that you can leave single-use plastics behind for good.

Here are our top four swaps:


1) Plastic Free Groceries

This month skip the plastic wrap on your fruit and veg and buy loose. ⁠Or even better hit up your local farmers market or green grocers to support the local economy. By buying loose groceries you save the unnecessary single-use plastic wraps. Don't forget to bring your own reusable bag!


2) Bring Your Own

Whether that be your packed lunch for work, or to a picnic with friends, by bringing your own homemade food you can reduce your single-use plastic waste.⁠ Not only is the food plastic-free, but homemade is always healthier than pre-packaged to-go food. Don't forget to bring your own cutlery too!


3) Plastic Free Bathroom

The bathroom is the easiest place to swap out the single-use plastic, switch to a soap bar or a bamboo toothbrush.⁠ Not only will this help you save plastic, but it will save you money in the long-run too!


4) Digital Payment Cards

As a digital payment card provider we may be bias, but digital payments are the future! With ImageNPay you can ditch to plastic payment card by signing up to our virtual prepaid card. You can use our card to shop online and instore with Apple Pay. Find out more about our work with the environment here.
