ON Plastic Pollution
Individual action, global impact
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.
