Why you should start living plastic free, how to make a start and how we can help you on your journey
What is so important about living plastic free? Plastic is a big problem. More than eight million tonnes of it goes into the oceans every year. That’s around 600,000 double-decker buses.

Just think about that; there will be as much plastic floating around as there are fish. That’s an appalling realisation by anyone’s standards. Most importantly, it’s a real wake up call on exactly what single-use plastic is doing to the planet.»
