We founded A Plastic Planet to ignite and inspire the world to turn off the plastic tap. We want to dramatically REDUCE the use of indestructible plastic that is destroying our oceans, our soils, our air and the health of future generations.
We focus on the use of conventional plastic; especially that used in packaging and single-use. Recent history has proven that recycling this kind of plastic is not the answer. It has little value, is mostly down-cycled, too difficult to reclaim and often contaminated. It’s fundamentally the wrong use of plastic in the first place. But right now, the public have no choice but to buy everything packaged in this indestructible material.
When you can buy gluten-free, fat-free, dairy-free; why can we not buy plastic-free?
