Fight against plastic pollution

Eight million tonnes of plastic are dumped in our oceans every year, choking our wildlife. 

Join the fight

Plastic ocean pollution

Together we can stop plastic entering our rivers and seas

We’re fighting for producers to take responsibility – making sure those that create plastic pollution are responsible for it. 

Plastic is everywhere. From our local beaches to the remote Arctic, it is choking our oceans and killing wildlife. Many thousands of us are doing our bit, but it’s time those who create these plastic products in the first place are made to take responsibility too.

Governments and businesses are currently looking for ways to fight plastic pollution – for example the UK government is consulting on banning plastic straws, stirrers and cotton buds. This is an important step, but we need to tell them to think bigger. 

Please join amazing supporters who have signed our petition. We’ll use your voice to take the fight to governments and businesses.

I believe that retailers and all those who produce plastic products should be responsible for the plastic pollution they create. The time for voluntary commitments has passed.
