TOGETHER WE’RE TURNING THE TIDE ON PLASTIC POLLUTION

We’re City to Sea, an environmental not-for-profit on a mission to stop plastic pollution. We run people-powered, communityserving campaigns that help individuals and businesses to change the world whilst having some fun on the way.

The problem might be complicated, but we think the solutions don’t have to be.

It's time to talk toilets

We think it’s a bummer that so many people are still treating their toilets like bins.

Wet wipes, period products, nappies, tooth-floss and cotton buds can all contain plastic and shouldn’t be flushed down the loo. Only flush the 3P’s – pee, paper and poo. It’s bog-standard. 

OCEANS OF OPTIMISM

We’re whaley optimistic here at City to Sea. Every day we see positive news breaking, success stories unfolding, and new boundaries being broken – and we think they’re are worth celebrating! Whether the good news is lapping up alongside our local communities or flowing through continents on the other side of the world, we know that there are OCEANS OF OPTIMISM out there and we want to share all these feel-good vibes with you!

TURNING THE TIDE ON PERIOD PLASTIC

We’ve teamed up with female producers, filmmakers and water sports athletes to produce this award-winning short film which really captures and brings to life our deep and vital connection with the ocean.

Join the Refill Revolution

Refill is our people-powered, award-winning campaign that reduces plastic pollution by making it easy to refill bottles with free tap water. Download the Refill app, find nearby Refill Stations, tell your friends and get refilling! 

BE A GOOD A**HOLE

In the UK we use a bottomblowing 11 BILLION wet wipes every year! The big problem is, most of these contain plastic and when flushed down the loo, they cause blockages which cost millions and result in sewage and pollution flooding into our oceans. But there’s lots you can do stop that from happening.
