Plastic Free Communities

Join the movement to help free where we live from single-use plastic.

Go to the Plastic Free Communities website

The Plastic Free Communities network has been created to tackle plastic pollution at source – from beaches and green spaces right back to the brands and businesses that create it. 

Wherever you live, whether you’re by the shore or inland, urban or rural, high tide or high-rise, we’re uniting in the fight against avoidable plastic.

It’s not about removing all plastic from our lives. It’s about kicking our addiction to throwaway plastic, and changing the system that produces it. 


Plastic is a growth industry, with one in every ten barrels of oil now used to create new plastic.

But together, we can make sure we don’t choke our coast, streets, parks and playgrounds with it. Because if it’s on our streets today, it’s in our rivers tomorrow, and our beaches and oceans forever.

We can make sure each of us understands that we can change this, whoever we are and wherever we live.

But we can only do it together

Everyone can take part

From schools to councils to local beach or street cleans, we can only do this if our whole community works together.
