Can your business become a Plastic Free Champion?

Four simple steps for your business to become a Plastic Free Champion:

  1. Read our resources page to see what is needed for your business to be eligible
  2. Replace at least three items of single use plastic with a sustainable alternative
  3. Register your business by using our handy registration form
  4. If you are accepted, we will send you your free Plastic Free Champion aware in the post and feature your business on our website

Can your community group become a Plastic Free Champion?

Schools, library, leisure centres, venues/halls, community organisations (scouts, guides, Rotary Clubs) are all able to register as Plastic Free Allies. This can mean anything from reducing plastic in the group, participating in litter picks and organising mass unwraps to just helping to spread resources.

  1. Consider if your organisation wants to reduce plastic waste
  2. Think of ways that you can help
  3. Fill in our simple registration form to let us know about your community group. We also want to know how you can reduce plastic waste – it can be as simple as putting up a poster, and as involved as a mass litter pick or holding a training event for your school.
