ON Plastic Pollution

Individual action. A global difference.

We believe in a world where our actions are connected to our oceans so all life can thrive. Whether you live in a big city or feel more at home underwater, we can all make a difference when it comes to our everyday actions.  Together we can stop plastic pollution at source, so our oceans and beaches won’t need to be cleaned in the future. 

Join thousands of incredible everyday activists across the UK and help create a wave of change. With your help, we’re empowering communities, changing behaviour, championing reusables and pressuring big brands and retailers to act.

Plastic-Free Periods

Did you know a lot of menstrual products on the market contain plastic… Every day in the UK about 700,000 panty liners, 2.5 million tampons and 1.4 million pads are flushed down the toilet, blocking sewers or littering waterways. Find out more about our solutions and products to help people with periods switch to reusables.

Switch the stick

Millions of cotton buds get flushed down UK loos, slipping through sewage filters to pollute the sea. In 2016 we petitioned UK retailers to switch to cotton bud sticks made of biodegradable paper rather than plastic. Find out which big names pledged to #SwitchtheStick

Plastic-free Travel

Our #PlasticFreeTravel campaign helps you avoid those hidden plastic items we all end up with. We’re on a mission with top hotel chains, train stations and airports to ditch those miniatures and find ways to make travelling with less plastic easier. 

City to Sea’s campaigns are having a great impact here in the UK. Global plastic pollution is a serious threat to our seas and the wider environment and it’s fantastic to see a group of dedicated people tackling the issue and making real progress
