Plastic Free July
Plastic Free July is a holiday that is dedicated to teaching people about the dangers of plastic and encourages people to avoid plastic for a month. At IOC we are taking steps towards reducing our usage of plastics, for example we have taken on IOC branded metal bottles in place of single use plastic bottles. We are also working with numerous suppliers with the same idea in mind to cut down on plastic use.
