Plastic-free travel

The ultimate guide to travelling light

No more guilt-trips

We all love a holiday. And research has found that 80% of us want to reduce plastic pollution too. So how can we combine the two? That’s where we come in.

We’re working with some of the biggest names in the industry to cut the excess plastic baggage from the travel industry. So, whether you’re putting your feet up in France, or catching a wave in Cornwall, our plastic-free travel campaign helps holiday goers to use less plastic by challenging hotels and travel companies to cut back and empowering those taking a holiday to do their bit as well.
