How can I help?

When it comes to ocean plastic, it’s understandable that you might feel powerless and ineffective. But we believe that everyone can help in a meaningful way right now.

Here are 3 ways that you can help to prevent ocean plastic:

01. Write to your local council

We must stop waste being exported to developing countries. Thousands of tonnes of plastic collected for recycling from households are transported and dumped around the world instead of being recycled.

02. Challenge your favourite brands

Our oceans continue to be endangered through our constant use of new plastics instead of collecting and recycling the plastic we have already. Tell them you prefer recycled plastic over new plastic.

03. Message your local supermarket

Every year, the UK’s biggest supermarkets use 810,000 tonnes of single-use plastic. Let them know that you prefer #PreventedOceanPlastic instead of using new plastic made from oil and petrochemicals.

04. Make A Better Plastic Choice

Look out for products with the Prevented Ocean Plastic logo. This way you can ensure that the product you are buying is helping our environment.
