Plastics are durable, strong and long-lasting – all positive elements until you realise that they will stay in our environment for up to an estimated 600 years. Convenience for us is certainly not convenience for our natural world.
Over 300 million tons of new plastic are made every year – half of which is for single use plastic, such as packaging and convenience foods. We believe this to be a gross misuse of such a versatile material.
Whether you’re an individual or part of a larger organisation, we need you to take the Plastic Free Pledge and commit to reducing single-use plastic waste. It’s really easy to get started… head over to the Take the Pledge page for more info.
