Help us stop plastic reaching the oceans within a generation

We work with businesses, scientists, schools and policy-makers to change attitudes and behaviours towards plastic

Plastic Oceans UK have been experts on the issue for a decade, and are solving the crisis through our science, education and sustainability programmes.

More than 8 million tonnes of plastic enter the ocean each year, and our addiction to single-use is to blame. It’s not an option to let that statistic worsen.

Join us in moving the needle today. Be part of the prevention, rather than the cure.
