Tote-ally Plastic Free July

In celebration of Plastic Free July Sublime Introduces their latest limited-edition tote-bag for life. Join us for a greener tomorrow.

As we enter a new month, we turn our attention to a different cause, Plastic Free July. This month, we are focussing on discouraging using single-use plastics in the hope to make sustainable long-term changes.

Sublime Universe

Sublime uses this opportunity to introduce the latest Sublime Universe limited edition collection. The vibrant, sustainable collection of tote bags and t-shirts are essential for this Plastic-Free July.

Sublime Universe highlights the importance of transitioning to a sustainable lifestyle through their collection of 100% organic combed cotton totes. Using high-quality materials plays a large part in creating a sustainable, well-made product.

The reusable unisex totes are ideal for day to day use and can replace the need for a one-time use plastic bag. The totes are available in yellow, cream, and black, so you can decide what colour is the best match for your wardrobe this summer.

The collection has been designed with the unique Sublime Universe Heart. All products from the Sublime Universe line have been manufactured with the planet at the forefront. All items are Peta approved Vegan, climate neutral, meet the global organic textile standard and are proud members of the Fair Wear Foundation.

Plastic Free July

Rebecca prince-Ruiz founded Plastic Free July in 2011 with help from a small team in local government in Western Australia. After 6 years, Rebecca went on to establish the Plastic Free Foundation to help support the cause and participants better. The Plastic Free Foundation works all year round to reduce pollution caused by plastic. Last year, approximately 326 million people took part across the world with the hope to combat the climate crisis.

The campaign is a global movement that supports people in their journey to being a part of the solution towards a healthier planet. The idea is to start refusing to use single-use plastics in July to form positive habits which follow throughout the rest of the year.

Throughout the month of July, people using plastic alternatives have contributed to a total saving of 940 million kg of plastic per year. Furthermore, out of everyone who participated, 8.5 out of 10 people created habits that have become a way of life.

The campaign has won awards for its positive environmental change: The 2018 Infinity Award Avoid Recover Protect – Community Waste Award, The 2018 Environmental Action Award, United Nations Association of Australia WA Division, and more.

Plastic Free July focuses on educating people on how they can reduce the amount of plastic waste they produce. By refusing to use single-use plastics, you are forcing yourself to find replacements. The campaign suggests creative plastic-free alternatives for work, school, events and more.

Positive for you, Positive for the planet

The Plastic Free campaign emphasises the importance of everyone making minor changes to create a significant impact across communities. Sublime hopes to inspire its readers to join its ethical fashion movement towards a more sustainable tomorrow.

Sublime Universe offers consumers a way to easily partake in Plastic-Free July by purchasing a tote bag. The Earth positive totes are made solely from using renewable green energy from wind and solar power, meaning the environment is not harmed in the process. By purchasing one of the Sublime Universe tote bags, you are eradicating the need for a single-use plastic bag that will end up in landfill or the sea.

All orders are shipped using 100% compostable packaging, so you don’t need to worry about disposing of any single-use plastics after receiving your planet positive order.

Sublime encourages everyone who purchases from the Sublime Universe collection to showcase it to the world. By photographing your tote and sharing it online using #SublimeMagazine, you can help raise awareness about single-use plastics and show you are making positive steps towards a greener future.
