What is the Plastic Challenge?

Every year we help our supporters to look closely at their buying habits and help them make informed choices to cut out single-use plastic.

We give you great tips and easy guides to help you reduce your plastic footprint and encourage others to do the same.

We'll share low cost options, simple tips, and quick ways to make a difference to your plastic consumption – for the good of people and the planet.

Plastic – a lasting problem for our planet

We use single-use plastics for just about everything, from cleaning our teeth and showering, to buying and storing food. It's durable and lightweight, but these properties mean it remains in the environment for hundreds or even thousands of years.

Plastic bags, cutlery and food wrappers are used for just minutes but often end up in our rivers and seas.

Every year approximately 11 million tonnes of plastic are dumped in the ocean. This causes devastating harm to wildlife, polluting our water with chemicals and breaking down into microplastics that enter into our food chain.

We all have a part to play in cutting back on single-use plastic and changing our throwaway culture.
