Raising awareness of the issues surrounding plastic pollution and promoting behaviour change to address the problem in local council, businesses, schools, community groups and individuals.

This project was funded on 30 Aug 2018!

Working within the community to promote the issue of plastic pollution and drive behaviour change. From straight-forward awareness driving - speaking at schools, talking to businesses about changing plastic use within their business and supply chains to organising events (eg. street cleans and films nights) where individuals can show support and take direct action and engaging councillors to drive change within local government.

What we'll deliver:

  • A reduction in plastic use by local businesses
  • Community events that inspire action on an individual level
  • An increased awareness in the local area of the problems and possible solutions

Why it's a great idea:

Plastic is good for some things for which you need a non-degradable material but this benefit is a huge negative when it comes to waste and the environment. All the plastic ever created in the world still exists today and we're making more than ever - there could be more plastic in the ocean than fish before 2050. The statistics are startling: 38 million plastic bottles a day used in the UK and only half recycled, 5 trillion plastic bags used a year globally. People are starting to wake up to the problem but it needs more and faster action to affect the necessary change - from individual purchasing power right up to government legislation. It can be overwhelming which is why local level initiatives such as mine are so important - a call to arms to show people that their action can make a difference.

Steps to get it done:

  • Street Clean and Plastic Free Picnic
