It’s out of control
The vast majority of plastic waste doesn't get reused or recycled. It's out there lingering in the natural environment, polluting our soils and seas. Take the average plastic bag – used for just a few minutes, but lasts for many hundreds of years.
Many of us are now realising just how harmful our misuse of plastic is. Plastic pollution is choking our oceans, harming the marine animals we love and getting into our food chain. It’s time to take action. Together, we are unstoppable.
We can stop this
We've had some game-changing wins over the years – like bringing doorstep recycling to every UK home in 2003. But recycling isn’t enough.
We urgently need government action. It has the power to make the big changes we need to end plastic pollution. But politicians won’t step up unless people like you and me push them to do so.
Lobbying the government for positive change takes a huge amount of time and effort. We can’t do it without you.
