In January 2017, A Plastic Planet was founded with one singular goal: to ignite and inspire the world to turn off the plastic tap. Now we know the truth and the extent of the damage our addiction to plastic has caused, we can’t un-know.
It all started with a plastic free aisle
Early 2017, A Plastic Planet co-founders, Frederikke Magnussen and Siân Sutherland launched their first award-winning campaign for A Plastic Free Aisle – two self-confessed plastic addicts, two unreasonable women who could stand by no longer once they became aware of what we are all collectively doing to our oceans, our land and ultimately to our own health. A Plastic Planet is now an army of like-minded passionate people, experts in all relevant fields, standing up for the public who want the choice to buy plastic free.
We are pro-business and industry
As entrepreneurs, we are pro-business and work collaboratively with all stakeholders – industry, retailers, packaging suppliers, schools, media, NGOs, Government and the UN to accelerate the pace of essential change. Now we know the truth about the damage our addiction to plastic has caused, it is indefensible not to change our ways as quickly as possible. Not in 25 years, not even in 5; but now, today. 2017 was the year we all woke up to this disaster. Now we know, we cannot un-know. Our job at A Plastic Planet is to keep up the pressure, help introduce plastic-free alternatives and champion those who are doing the right thing.
