Some food for thought

Plastic pollution is everywhere and has become part of any outdoor activity. It’s a huge problem we can all take action on.

  • 99% of plastic

    is fossil fuel derived. Carbon emissions from plastic production are set to triple by 2050.

  • 7 million coffee cups

    In the UK, we use 7 million disposable coffee cups every day.

  • 112,000 bits of packaging

    That's the number of pieces of plastic packaging distributed by UK supermarkets per minute.
