As we move into the month of July, there are several events and holidays that could be great inspiration for your next event. Whether you're planning a virtual or in-person race, we can help you design a medal that celebrates the theme of your choice.

Let's start with International Joke Day on July 1st. Why not plan a fun run with a fancy dress joke theme? We can create a medal design that features a laughing emoji or a silly pun. Alice Day is a special day dedicated to celebrating the classic children's book "Alice in Wonderland" by Lewis Carroll. It is observed every year on July 1st, and it's a perfect opportunity to organise a themed run or walk that will get participants in the spirit of this whimsical and magical story. At Zero Waste Medals, we can help you create a custom medal or trophy that features the iconic characters and themes from "Alice in Wonderland."

Or, if you're a tennis fan, why not plan a Wimbledon-themed event for July 3rd-16th? Our team can create a design featuring tennis rackets or the iconic Wimbledon strawberries and cream.

If you're planning an event for American Independence Day on July 4th, why not make your race extra patriotic? We can create a medal design featuring the American flag or a bald eagle. And on July 7th, celebrate World Chocolate Day with a chocolate-themed run. 

Shark Awareness Day is on July 14th. This is a great opportunity to raise awareness about the importance of protecting these incredible animals and their habitats. The Shark Trust is a UK charity committed to helping the conservation of sharks all over the world. You could organise a swim challenge to raise funds for a shark conservation charity, or a beach clean-up event to help protect the oceans that sharks call home. We can design a custom medal for your event featuring a shark or ocean-themed design to inspire participants and celebrate their achievements. Check out the good work Friends of the Earth are doing for ocean protection, Fishing and the environment | Friends of the Earth.

Another exciting event happening in July is the FIFA Women's World Cup, which takes place from July 20th to August 20th. This is a great opportunity to organise a football tournament to celebrate women's sports and raise awareness about gender equality in sports. We can create custom medals for your event featuring football-themed designs or your own logo, to commemorate the event and celebrate the achievements of the participants. Women in Football - Home is a great charity supporting and championing women getting involved in sports in a fair and encouraging environment. 

Moving into the second half of the month, there are several more events to inspire you. On July 20th, plan a chess-themed event for World Chess Day. Our team can create a medal design featuring chess pieces or a chess board. Furthermore, on July 29th, celebrate Global Tiger Day with a charity tiger-themed run. We can create a medal design featuring a tiger or tiger stripes. Check out our friends at WWF to learn how you can help Tigers in the wild. Adopt a Tiger | WWF Adopt an Animal from £3.00 a month (

If you're a charity organising an event, we offer charity discounts as we always like to support where we can.

And last but not least, Harry Potter fans will be delighted to hear that we can create a medal design for Harry Potter's birthday on July 31st. Whether you're a Gryffindor, Hufflepuff, Ravenclaw, or Slytherin, we can create a medal design that celebrates your favourite Hogwarts house. Why not organise a wizard run where participants show up in their best witch hats and wizard capes. 

No matter what event or holiday inspires you, Zero Waste Medals is here to help. We can design medals or trophies for your event that incorporates the theme of your choice.

So, let your imagination run wild and contact us today to get started on your custom medal design!
