Our plastic-free ambassadors are at the heart of our mission to secure a plastic-free aisle in supermarkets. Right across the UK and Europe, our ambassadors are leading calls to save our planet and health from plastic pollution. If you would like to become our next plastic-free ambassador, we’d love to hear from you. Please get in touch via email@example.com
Ben says “I am a father of two and live in London. Plastic pollution is destroying our planet and we simply do not know enough about the effect it is having on our health.
Not enough of it can be effectively recycled and far too much of it is making its way into our oceans. That is why I am putting my weight behind A Plastic Planet with their ambitious aim of getting a Plastic-Free Aisle in supermarkets.”
Rafaelle says “I am a 21 year-old French Australian just about to graduate from the University of Bath where I studied Natural Sciences. I believe plastic is one of the greatest threats facing our planet.
The oceans are vital for life on earth, yet we continue to fill them up with plastic waste in all its forms. It disfigures our beautiful coastlines, chokes our estuaries and poisons our fabulous sea-life. Protecting our oceans will require all of us to make incredible changes to our daily lives. Let’s start now!”
Charles says “I am married, 55 years old with three children, three step children and two children in law. I live on the coast in Dorset and work in London.
I am a businessman with interests in property and technology. I am a links golfer, a sailor and a walker along our shores. It pains me to see the visible plastic let alone imagine the unseen plastic in oceans across the world. We can learn to reduce our reliance on plastic and protect our environment.”
Louise says “I’m a celebrity make-up artist, and have travelled the world working in fashion and film for the last 30 years.
Plastic and non-recycling have always been a bugbear for me. Not only do I want a plastic free world, I want to educate the world in recycling!
Let’s start with a plastic free aisle.”
Lisa says “I am a stay at home mother with my youngest two children who are 4 and 3. Our normal routine includes shopping for groceries and household items which involves visiting different shops to avoid as much plastic packaging as possible.
Plastic pollution, especially single use plastic is unnecessary and it is filling up the oceans and endangering wildlife. Manufacturers should take more responsibility and rethink their packaging for sustainable alternatives and be made more accountable.”
James says “I am a contemporary multimedia artist working between London and Italy. My work reflects a fascination with the origin and manifestation of real or imagined physical and metaphysical energy fields.
I am determined to end the scourge of plastic pollution in my lifetime. A plastic-free aisle would be a huge step forward to achieving this.”
Jessica says “I am a self-diagnosed ‘Obsessive Compulsive Recycler’. I live in rural Somerset and work at a tea factory, and reducing my own ‘plastic footprint’ is no longer enough. I am conscious of the terrible effect that we humans are having on the natural environment. The massive challenge that we are facing of climate change is indiscriminate, so let’s unite, organise and fight it together.”
Rebecca says “I am a legal secretary and concerned Worcester resident. This year’s Lent I gave up single use plastic and by Easter I concluded: I can adapt but it requires a huge conscious effort. Any campaign therefore which helps make our shopping and food culture a sustainable one has my full support!”
Louise says “I’m a second-year Creative Writing student at Bath Spa University and I’m the university’s Environment & Ethics Officer which I hope will allow me to make positive change for the environment and other species. Reducing the number of plastic students and staff use is an important topic that I would like to campaign for. Also, I’m the President of the university’s first Vegan Society which I hope will begin to influence students choices on what they eat and how that affects the planet.”
Sue says “I am a Massage Therapist specialising in Sports Massage, Thai massage and also do complementary therapies for relaxation and rejuvenation. Along with this work, I have a Master’s Degree in Research Methods. I am concerned about the environment, especially keeping environmental protections in place when we leave the EU. Plastic is a big issue and I would be interested in returning to sustainable use of paper bags (as are used in my local greengrocers) – this could be easily implemented by providing them in supermarkets where people could weigh their own produce.”
Kate says ‘I have been refusing to use trashy plastics for over a decade now. That includes packaging, synthetic fibres, anything for which there is a natural alternative and any other unnecessary nonsense. To do so I have had to research a lot compostable alternatives. Which has not always been easy. To help others save time and help them cut their plastic, I curate an ever growing online database of tried and tested alternatives. It now features over 350 plastic free products and lifestyle hacks – everything from making your own fake bake to buying loose nuts to biodegradable glitter. Plus a lot of information about plastic the product, campaigns and other related issues’.
