Plastic pollution is at crisis point and you can help

Whether you live inland or by the sea, with almost no effort you can help fix the problem. This 100% charitable initiative is not just for the environmentally focused – it’s for everyone and every organisation – it’s for you. It’s new, so please take the lead and sign up today.

Each of us

In your usual routine commit pick up at least one piece of plastic once a week, more if you wish. And put a once-off dot on the map, so you add to the global count. Others will follow your lead. And, where practical, prefer businesses on the Search directory.

Business

Be seen by more customers. If your business is committed to recycling and/or taken any other steps to reduce waste, list on the Search directory. Here’s some example Pages. There is also plenty engagement and waste saving ideas to consider.

Groups that pick up plastic. And Ploggers.

Two or more people who get together to pick up plastics – let’s call them Plastic Patrols. And groups of joggers who pick up plastics, Ploggers. Sign up as a group and post your activities, so others see it and together let’s expand this movement.

Schools, not for profits and other organisations

You can easily take small or big steps to be part of the solution to the plastics crisis and use this platform to build community and networks. Sign up today and share what you do.

Double outcome donations

Donations are split 50% for the development of the Plastic Free Oceans project and 50% to install solar power in remote Pacific island schools see Its Time Foundation.  Giving kids carbon free electricity for a modern education is worthwhile in itself, but also the schools commit to spend one hour each month picking up plastics.  Ocean drift plastics as well as their own. There will be 1000s of kids and villagers clearing remote beaches of plastic. See the video below from Nacula Island Fiji – how many do you think they picked up?

 

Plastic Free Oceans is an initiative of Its Time Foundation.  Please note that administration, rent and office costs of the charity are capped at a maximum 15%. That is much less than most charities, so you can be confident your contribution will be well spent for a better environment for us all.
