Together we can protect
people and planet

A lot of our clothes are shedding tiny bits of plastic when we wash them. They can end up in the sea – potentially entering the food chain.

Find out more and sign our petition to tell retailers to urgently tackle plastic pollution caused by their clothes.

What's happening right now

Sign our petition to reduce pesticides

Bees, birds, butterflies and other wildlife are in decline.

One of the main reasons? Pesticides.

Help us make the countryside a safer place for our wildlife, including bees.

Stop the government forcing fracking on communities

The government has given the final go-ahead for fracking in Lancashire – despite the wishes of local people.

And it wants to rewrite planning rules to take power away from councils and make it easier for fracking companies to start drilling.

Please sign the petition today to tell the government not to trample on local democracy.

Never miss a thing...
